If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.

“BoBo is an approximately 5-year-old Hound / Shar-Pei mix, rescued from a high-kill shelter in West Virginia. BoBo is a very gentle, loving boy who only wants to be petted and loved. He likes everyone he meets! He is great with other dogs and with cats. He does have some wrinkly skin issues, but loves his baths. He needs daily eye drops, too. But the love he gives is worth the little extra effort! If you are interested in adopting BoBo, please contact Linda Baker, at [email protected]

“Waterfall is one extraordinary kitty! He was found in a ditch, severely injured and sick, but a wonderful animal control officer, the staff of a big city shelter, and King Street Cats all knew he was worth saving. After losing an eye, having major injuries, parasites, and all manner of difficulties, this happy boy SINGS when he plays. What a trouper! His foster mom says that, in addition to his obvious handsomeness, Waterfall has a big personality, a joyful spirit, and a gentle soul. He loves playing and running around but also loves to be held so he can snuggle up really close.

Waterfall would do best in a house with other cats, but no dogs. He is still scared of dogs and loud noises, and prefers having some company. To find out more about Waterfall and to apply to adopt him, please check out his website.”

From MPD:

“Good morning. Members of the Third District Crime Suppression Team (CST) and the Narcotics and Special Investigations Division (NSID) conducted another prostitution enforcement operation last night/early this morning in the area of 12th Street and Massachusetts Avenue NW in response to community concerns regarding an increase in visible prostitution activities. The operation resulted in the arrests of 7 males and 4 females for prostitution related offenses. We will continue our efforts in the area in hopes of making a lasting impact on this illegal activity.”
