If you have any fun or interesting animal/pet photos please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say what neighborhood you’re from or upload to the PoPville flickr pool with your pets name and neighborhood. I can’t guarantee I’ll get them all posted but I’ll do my best.

“Schweppes (cat) and Cody (dog) in Dupont
We “think” Cody is a Lab/Vizsla mix. People often ask us what kind of dog he is. We adopted him from Labrador Retriever Rescue, but he does seem to have a Vizsla-look. We decided to do a DNA test for after getting a lot of questions and for our own curiosity, but the results do not seem entirely plausible – 50% Lab, 25% Dalmatian, 25% Border Collie. In any event, he is a super-friendly, wonderful guy, as is the cat.”
After the jump – found dog and info on Empty the Shelter event at Washington Humane Society
“Today, I found an older dog at 5th and Missouri Avenue, and I want to share the pictures and video I took of this little lady in the hopes that her owner(s) might be located. I hate to think she was dumped or abandoned.
She had only her dog license tag and rabies tag, which will hopefully track her owners, but I’m not sure. When I got to school, my mom kindly came and picked her up and she will be dropping her off at the Georgia Avenue Humane Society Shelter which opens at noon on Fridays.
If you know anything or are interested in adopting this sweet, playful dog, she will be there. It was very cold last night, and I think she had been out all night because she was shivering when I found her.”
I volunteer at the Washington Humane Society and we are having an
event this weekend that I think you might be interested in:
The Washington Humane Society (WHS) will host a special Empty the
Shelter event Saturday and Sunday, September 17-18, at its two shelter
locations, on Georgia Avenue, NW, and New York Avenue, NE, to promote
the adoption of more DC animals. WHS will waive all adoption fees on
all animals during the event! (Regular matchmaking procedures still
In addition, vitaminwater zero™ is pitching in to help WHS by keeping
adopters hydrated from September through October by sending each
adopter home with a case of vitaminwater zero™!
Potential adopters are invited to visit WHS shelters to meet their
potential new companion and help us “empty the shelter” to end pet
homelessness in DC!
Weekend Adoption Hours:
