Does anyone know what, if any, particular rules or regulations buildings need to abide by when commissioning a mural for the side of a residential building? Also, are there good resources available for engaging with the local artistic community to commission murals?”

Hi there! My name is Robin, and I’m a 13 year old, thriving girl! I love hanging out with my people and my dog foster siblings. I’m 10 years older than them but you wouldn’t know it with how well I keep up! I’ll never say no to a treat, but what I want more than anything is just to curl up and snuggle with my people. If you’d like to submit your application to be my number one snuggle buddy, contact the Humane Rescue Alliance. I can’t wait to meet you!
Hi! My name is Autumn and I’m as pleasant and breezy as the season I’m named after. My silky soft coat might remind you of a colorful pile of freshly fallen leaves. I’m 8 years old but I have the energy of a much younger cat after I take a long nap. I have very good litter box manners and I love to snuggle on the couch while you watch TV or read a book. Even though I’m very fit and weigh less than 5 pounds, I am a foodie at heart. I am not a picky eater and I especially love Greenie treats. If you’re looking for a calm, playful, loving, polite companion, I’m the kitty for you! For more info or to meet me contact the Humane Rescue Alliance *** And as part of the Boomer’s Buddies program, adopters who are 50 years of age or older may adopt an animal who is 5 years of age or older for a waived fee ***
Please help. About two months ago our neighbors adopted a cat from the Humane Rescue Alliance as part of DC’s Blue Collar Cat program, which is aimed at helping to curtail DC’s rodent problem. Sounds great, right? Well, the cat has decided to make the back entrance of our building it’s outdoor litter box. (more…)
