Your Monthly Adoptable Animal Fix

Ed. Note: Thanks to Michelle for putting together this list of adoptable pets. It will be featured the last Friday every month. If you are interested in submitting an adoptable pet you can email Michelle at Help.the.Pups.DC(at)gmail(dot)com


Paisley – Tails High, Inc.
Paisley is an adorable medium haired calico from Tails High, Inc.  Just like the paintings, Paisley loves basking in sunbeams while lying on a soft pillow.  But, if there’s a catnip toy, or a favored piece of string or ribbon, she will pounce and roll about like a kitten with eyes wide and tail twitching.  And, she thoroughly approves of using your hairbrush to keep her coat soft, fluffy, and tangle free. Initially shy around strangers, given a bit of patience, she will quickly warm up to both the human and any four-footed members of her new family.  If you would like to adopt Paisley, please send an email here.


Franny – City Dogs Rescue
Franny is a three-year-old lab mix from City Dogs Rescue.   Franny is friendly, loving companion.  She is very sweet and well-mannered and gets along with adults, children, and pups alike!  Just check out her video – she is quite the playful pup and would love for you to throw a tennis ball for her to romp after (yep, she’s a cutie!).  You can apply to adopt Franny or any of our available dogs on our adoption page, apply to one of our pups here, or meet some of our pups at one of our upcoming events!

More great pets after the jump.


Barney and Simon – Homeward Trails Animal Rescue

Barney and Simon are one to two-year old boys from Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.  These two boys met in the shelter, and they have been the best of friends ever since!  Barney and Simon are currently being fostered together and would love to find a home together as well.  They are playful, social, easy cats that get along with everyone they meet.  If you think Barney and Simon would be a good fit for your home, please fill out our cat adoption questionnaire and email it here.  You can also meet some of our adoptable animals at one of our events!


Dibee – Washington Humane Society
Dibee is a one-year old Terrier/American Staffordshire mix from Washington Humane Society.  Dibee is confident and goody but, most of all, she’s super sweet.  She is a happy, active pup that loves to play, but she loves to be a cuddle bug too!  She knows commands like ‘sit’ and ‘stay,’ and if she hears her names, she comes running.  To express interest in adopting Dibee and learn about the process, please email here.  You can meet some of our adoptable animals at one of our upcoming events!


Chunk – Lucky Dog Animal Rescue

Chunk is a one to two-year old lab mix from Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.  This goofy guy can’t wait to find his forever family.  He is a big boy that loves his treats and playtime – fetch in particular – he’s working on catching the ball in the air!  But, he settles down nicely in a house too and snooze on rainy days.  Bonus – he gets along with other pups too.  If you think Chunk would be a good forever fit for your home, please contact Carrie.  We have many adoptable animals, so feel free come check us out at one of our events!


Ralphie – Rural Dog Rescue
Ralphie is a chihuahua/feist mix from Rural Dog Rescue.  Ralphie is an energetic and silly pup that’s full of love.  He loves fetching and chewing his toys, and he is an amazing athlete – he’s a fast runner, has an incredible vertical jump, and bounds with joy.  At the end of the day, he just wants to konk out o the couch and be affectionate.  If you would like to adopt Ralphie, or any of our animals, please send the adoption application here.  To foster one of our pups, please send the foster application here.  You can meet our pups at our adoption events held every Saturday at Howl to the Chief from noon until 3pm.
