Washington, DC

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.

Friends and Neighbors,

We are only beginning to see the effects that COVID-19 is having on our community, including our animal friends and those working on their behalf.  Local rescue organizations and shelters may easily become overwhelmed in the coming weeks, as adoption events are reduced or even stopped, and owner surrenders continue or increase due to economic adversity.  Rather than feature specific animals on AdoPtville this week, we are providing here some resources to help you keep your pet, as well as asking anyone in the position to do so to consider adopting, fostering, and / or donating, to help these amazing and hardworking organizations.
