One of my dogs was bitten at a dog park last weekend. I didn’t know the dog was injured at the time, and neither did the other owner. Unfortunately, I didn’t think to get information from the other owner regarding vaccination records “just in case.” My dog is now on a 45 day quarantine. I’m looking for any help possible to encourage the other owner to call the Humane Rescue Alliance to provide vaccination information, so my dogs and I can get back to our normal routine of long group walks and doggy daycare.
The incident happened at Bundy Dog Park, between 4th & 5th Street, on P St. NW, on Sunday, February 18, around 1:00pm. The other dog whose records are needed looks like a yellow lab mix, with a shepherd looking face, with dark face markings, named Mambo. The other owner simply needs to call the Humane Rescue Alliance at 202-576-6664, and provide vaccination information. The Human Rescue Alliance said they will not be in trouble for calling in to provide the information. The goal is to prevent rabies in the District.
Additional information. Thanks to a helpful person who was at the dog park last weekend, the dog whose vaccinations records are needed is named Mambo. It is a yellow lab mix, with a shepherd looking face, with some darker markings on the face. If you know anyone with a dog meeting this description and named Mambo, please encourage the owner to call the Humane Rescue Alliance ,so the the little white dog in this picture does not have to be quarantined.”
