Your Afternoon Animal Fix – AdoPtville

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.

Say hello to Hope, a true representative of her name. Hope was recently rescued from an unacceptable outdoor living situation. Her rescue team at Gray Face Acres is helping her overcome the medical issues she suffered as a result of her past, and she’s now gaining health and confidence to bring to her new, indoor home! Hope is 11 years old and is very good on leash and in the car. She does well with other dogs, but does not like cats. Hope is sweet and affectionate, and she continues to blossom thanks to the loving care she’s receiving from her foster family. This resilient lady will be a wonderful pet who is truly appreciative of the good life – if you’d like to share that good life with her, please find out more about Hope here.

Meet Melody! This pretty little girl with the cauliflower ear (and cauliflower is *perfect* this time of year!) is looking for a new furever home, as her person had to go into assisted living. Melody is about 3 years old, in good overall health, and is up to date on all her vaccinations. While she can be a little shy at first, once she warms up, Melody is a great snuggler who loves to give and receive affection! She has not yet been tested with other pets, but her easygoing nature suggests she’d fit into any loving home, given enough time and patience. Melody has a lot of love to give – if you’re interested in making this pawsome lady a part of your family, check out her adoption page here.

**Volunteer Note** – Have you adopted a pet from AdoPtville? Are you a current pet foster parent? If so, we want to give thanks to you in a special AdoPtville Thanksgiving post. Please email about your adoption / foster story to [email protected] And thank you to everyone who supports AdoPtville and the all of the DMV’s pets in need.
