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.

“Dear PoPville,

I was mugged half a block from my house on 13th St NW between Harvard and Girard on Sunday night at 5:40 pm. After the first robbery in August when my phone was stolen from me 2 blocks from home, I had bought a phone wrist strap to secure it to my wrist, which prevented the SECOND robbery in September from occurring when someone else tried to snatch it from me outside Smitty’s, a nearby bar where I was working on the weekends. The first two robberies occurred even earlier in the day than this one.

YES, this is the THIRD time I’ve been robbed in 3 months, and all have been in Ward 1.

This time, he ran up behind me and snatched the phone out of my hand. I had just taken it out to change the song because I was supposed to see Big Thief that night. (Heard it was a great show.) The wrist strap wouldn’t break so he shoved me hard to the ground until it broke. He started running away, and I started running after him (I KNOW, NOT SMART, but instinctual), and he turned around and punched me in the head. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

DC now requires all recycling to be loose and all recycling in plastic bags is thrown out. Private companies pick up the recycling from apartment buildings, but they still have to follow DC regulations. If you live in an apartment building and your recyclables go into a large container (“dumpster”), it’s most likely they still need to be loose. Some companies allow clear bags (but not grocery bags) for large quantities of recycling. Black bags are always considered trash, regardless of which bin they are in. Read More
