If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix 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.
Meet Callie! In addition to her gorgeous calico coloring and sweet face, she’s living proof that it’s worth taking a chance on an animal in need. Rescued from a sad hoarding situation in a rural area in SC, we were told that Callie was very shy and picky about her feline friends and would probably do best as an only kitty. As it turned out, Callie wasn’t cranky – she was in pain, from bladder stones. Now that she has been properly treated, it turns out that Callie is GREAT with other animals, including the four cats and one dog she was being fostered with. Callie is still shy initially, but does open up after a few days and is playful, seeks attention, and is even a bit talkative at meal time. She is beautiful, has the softest coat, and has perfect manners in the house. She has fully recovered but she will need to be on a special diet to prevent future stones. But don’t allow that to discourage you: the diet is no more expensive than a reasonably-priced, good quality cat food.
At 8 years young, she has outgrown the crazy kitten “zoomies,” but she has plenty of life and spunk left to share with her forever family. She’s been through so much… now it’s time to find her the home she has always deserved and will so appreciate. To learn more about adopting Callie, please visit here.
Say hello to Jester, who’s so lovable, a whole shelter team advocated to get him into rescue before his time was up. When DC PAWS Rescue agreed to rescue Jester, the celebration could be heard throughout the building! Now he is one step closer to a forever home – can you help? Described as “ridiculously friendly” with other dogs and humans, this lab/boxer/Heinz 57 mix is a fairly “chill” boy, though he LOVES playing with toys and finds his inner puppy for a good play sesh. So while well past the crazy puppy stage, Jester still has energy to play and be active, but settles down nicely inside the home to be snuggly and calm. One look into his soulful eyes, and you will see why he was a shelter favorite. He has not yet been tested with cats, but we can easily do that if your family includes a feline god or goddess. To explore giving Jester the loving forever home he so deserves, please visit here.
Please allow us to introduce you to Maggie. Found as a stray in rural South Carolina, sweet little Maggie is now in foster care in the DMV area. Her foster family advises that she is very connected to her person, and will make an excellent sidekick for someone looking for a steadfast companion. Maggie is a young, active dog who needs daily activity and entertainment, and would enjoy a playmate in her new family. She’s being fostered with both a small and large dog, and likes to snuggle with her pack. She’s more timid than confident, so she may be a better fit for calmer, older kids, and would probably enjoy more human companions to love! She’s crate trained and potty trained, but needs work on her leash skills. She’s a country girl, so leash walking is new to her and she’s still adjusting to the sights and sounds of a more urban life. To find out more about adopting Maggie, please visit here.
