Your Monthly Adoptable Animal Fix

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

Kena - Washington Humane Society

Kena – Washington Humane Society

Kena is a 3 year old American Staffordshire Terrier/border collie mix from the Washington Humane Society. She is a medium-energy sweetie pie who’s ready to find her new best friend. She may seem timid at first, but with just a moment, you will have an express ticket to cuddle station. She enjoys runs, but she is equally happy to hang out by our side after a walk. You can meet Kena at WHS’s New York Avenue Adoption Center and learn about the adoption process here.

Opie - Rural Dog Rescue

Opie – Rural Dog Rescue
Opie is a sweet, 5-7 year old hound Rural Dog Rescue. He is very laid back, has a gentle disposition, and gets along with everyone, including children. He is a playful pup but not high energy and loves to lie around on the couch or his bed when indoors. He does well with canine and feline friends alike. And, if that’s not enough, he’s very smart and learns quickly. You can apply to adopt Opie or any of our adoptable animals here. If you are interested in fostering one of our animals, please apply here. You can meet many of our animals every Saturday at Howl to the Chief from noon until 3pm.

More great pets after the jump.

Mariah - Homeward Trails

Mariah – Homeward Trails Animal Rescue

Mariah is a beautiful, young tabby from Homeward Trails Animal Rescue. She is a petite girl who gets along well with other animals and loves people. She is very cuddly and will follow you from room to room. Mariah is social, confident, and would do well as either a single cat or with a feline or canine friend. For adoption information, please visit her Petfinder page. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please send an email here. You can also meet some of our adoptable animals at one of our events!

Cali - Tails High

Cali – Tails High, Inc.

Cali is an elegant, 1.5 year old dilute tortie from Tails High, Inc. With the time and care she has been given, Cali has discovered that she really likes to be petted. She’s a happy girl that loves to play with other cats, comes when called, and sits on command. If you let her, she will gladly cuddle you as you sleep. Best of all, she has developed the adorable habit of puffing up the fur on the base of her tail when she’s super happy. If you would like to adopt Cali, please complete our adoption application on our website.  You can also visit us at one of our upcoming events!

Zach - Lucky Dog

Zach – Lucky Dog Animal Rescue
Zach is a 2 year old American Staffordshire Terrier mix from Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.  You should expect many smiles and laughs when you spend time with this gentle boy. He loves to play, but he is less energetic than most staffy mixes and would be just as happy to sit on your lap. He loves his canine friends and would excel in a home with another pup. To adopt Zach, please fill out our adoption application available here and email it to Elissa  We have many adoptable animals, so feel free come check us out at one of our events!
