Your Afternoon Animal Fix – AdoPtville

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.

“Amethyst is a friendly, sweet young lady of orange and white coloring. She has a gentle personality and likes to be petted and given attention. She spent time in a foster home with several resident cats and enjoyed their company. She would like to be in a forever home with another kitty companion. Her sister, Pebbles, is also available for adoption and they can go as a pair. Amethyst was born in June 2016. She has been spayed, tested negative for FIV and FELV, is current on vaccinations, and has been micro chipped. Please contact [email protected] to find out more about Amethyst, her sister Pebbles, and how to make them a part of your family!”

“Adorable Jill is a Toy Fox Terrier (best guess), who is just under 10 lbs. and approximately 13 years old. She is the best little companion dog and loves nothing more than to be in your lap, on your bed with you, or to be carried around. She is also very independent!! She loves to go on pack walks with all the other dogs in her foster home at Gray Face Acres. She sleeps quietly for most of the day and is perfectly house trained. She is quite the well-behaved little lady!! Her foster mom has never heard a peep out of her, and boy, can she hear. Since she has likely been blind from birth, her other senses are very acute. She uses sound to step down steps, and even walk around things. Nothing slows her down. So far she has not met a [person or dog she does not like. She is so friendly and will greet you with a wagging short little tail. She is spayed and up to date on vaccines, and ready to go to her forever home. Please go to to apply to adopt Jill!”

“This distinguished gentleman is Rags (aka Ragamuffin), nearly 19 years old according to his family. He was no stranger to the shelter, as he had wandered off from his home previously, only this time, his family did not want him back. Imagine that! How many would answer the call from the shelter, pleading for a home for a senior pup because a shelter is no place for a dog to spend the twilight of his life? Thanks to their wonderful foster Amanda, who appreciates just how special seniors are, DC PAWS Rescue was able to welcome this sweet senior into their family and it is their hope to find him a wonderful home for the holidays. In spite of his advanced age and recent loss of family, this boy has lots of spunk and joy in him. Just look at that face! He could be warming your lap this season! To learn more about Rags, please visit here.”
