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 the Humphrey Bogart of cats! At first Mac seems like such a tough guy but he is a real softie with a heart of gold. Like most of us, he is sociable but with boundaries. He’d rather choose to hop on the sofa next to you than be picked up and placed on your lap. Patience will reward you. Mac accepts new people pretty quickly, but really warms up with more time. Mac is all set to begin his “beautiful friendship” – he is just waiting for the right person to start! Is it you?!
Violet is a healthy, active, middle-aged pup who wants to be your one and only! She is looking for a calm, adult-only home with an experienced dog owner who can recognize her triggers and help her to feel safe and secure. She can be very anxious at times, which makes her wary of strangers, reactive around other dogs, and easily startled. Once settled, however, Violet isn’t afraid to show her goofy side and will request daily snuggles. She’s a small lady with a very big personality!
She is impeccably house-trained, knows basic commands, and can easily be left at home without incident during the workday. She likes to explore, whether that means going for car rides or hiking Rock Creek. While she would love to have a yard to run in, she also does fine in lower-level apartment living (no elevators) with several walks daily.
