In the Nation’s Capital, everybody needs a little Juice! Juice is an 18 month old pit bull terrier mix. He gets along with all people, and dogs his own size. He is not good with cats, small children, or small dogs. He would prefer to be in a home without another dog. Juice is toy and food motivated and considered medium/high energy. He likes to play but settles down when it’s time to chill. He is very loyal — when he finds his human he sticks to them like glue. He’s a phenomenal dog with great house manners. He loves long walks and playing fetch. He likes to be in the same room as his person, and suffers a little bit of separation anxiety, but that eases as he settles in. He is currently being professionally trained by Monument Dog Training and will be crate trained, able to sit, heel, down and place on command. This is a super friendly and eager to please boy! Please only apply if you will continue Juice’s training per his trainers guidance. We like to set our pitbulls up for success and good dog manners and obedience are keys to success! This is a great dog! If you are interested in adopting Juice, please complete an application online at www.ruraldogrescue.com, or email [email protected]

Moochie is a 2 year-old gentle girl searching for a home where she can reign supreme as your extremely devoted one and only. Found by a volunteer as a stray, Moochie has a sweetheart purrsonality and a tender disposition – she really responds to soft voices and gentle scratches! Moochie is an affectionate, people-loving girl and she cannot wait to become a cherished family member. She does not enjoy the company of other cats but she LOVES humans, and simply must find one of her own! Please learn more about Moochie and apply to adopt her here.

This week’s adoptable animals came all the way from Florida!

Chicky and Ricki, along with dozens of other cats and dogs hopped a transport from a shelter affected by Hurricane Irma.  They are available through Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, which also took in 22 dogs and 13 cats from Puerto Rico this week.  To learn how you can adopt or foster one of these homeless animals, please reach out: [email protected].
Chicky
Chicky had a rough trip to VA, but has settled in, and is enjoying life here now.  Chicky is an outgoing lady — no hiding under the bed for her!  Chicky is very affectionate with her host Mom; she seems to like having one favorite person.  She enjoys petting on her own terms, but will let you know when she’s decided she’s had enough.
When she is in the mood, Chicky will follow you around the room, purring, and looking to be petted or played with.  When you pick her up, if you fully support her back feet and rump, she will put her front paws around your neck in a kitty hug, and will rub her face on yours endlessly!
Chicky loves a couple good playtime romps each day with the laser pointer, string toy, or some catnip-infused balls.  Chicky is not a lap cat so far, but she is very happy  to curl up right next to you on the sofa.  When not playing or showering her human with affection, Chicky loves to look out the window, perch on the back of the couch, or sleep in a sunny soft spot — especially a pillow on a bed or chair.  If you want to help out a sweet kitty from the hurricane zones, come fall in love with Chicky and give her a cozy fur-ever home!
Ricki- 
Ricki is very excited to be in the DC area.  She had been hanging out in a Florida shelter, but she heard there are lots of wonderful families here, and she hopped on the first bus.  She is a great companion.  She likes to go for walks, gives kisses, and never hogs the TV remote.

Ricki, Buster, and King are all participating in the Adopt a Luv a Bull promotion sponsored by Prai Beauty! This means their adoption fees have been sponsored for the month of October to help them find homes. Make sure to meet these guys this weekend and #adoptaluvabull.

Chestnut is more than good looks and legs for days… this sweet boy is affectionate, quiet, and eager to please! When he walks, he struts like a supermodel on the runway. Seriously, we have it on video. He doesn’t walk so much as he prances. It’s adorable. Fairly typical for a Whippet mix, Chestnut is sensitive, quiet, and bonds to his humans quickly. His foster reports that he is the perfect houseguest and steals the hearts of nearly everyone he meets, which is why we’re surprised that he’s not already making somebody home a little warmer this fall! Chestnut is about 3 years old and 13 lbs, and is fairly low energy. He does well with gentle children and other dogs. We haven’t cat-tested him yet, but can easily do that if you have feline family members. This boy would love a family of his own to snuggle with and explore the neighborhood. You can learn more about Chestnut and adopting through DC PAWS Rescue here.

“Ginger is a little female mix of “anybody’s best guess.” She is about 22 lbs and is super sweet and friendly. She loves attention and likes to play with toys. She is 7 or 8 years old, is spayed and just had a dental. She is up to date on her vaccinations as well. Ginger has a little arthritis in her lower spine that causes her a bit of a wobble in her walk. She can do very short walks and gets around just fine, but really prefers a lap to sleep in and attention from her humans. Ginger gets along well with other dogs, and while she hasn’t been cat- or kid-tested, has the kind of mellow personality that works in any household. Please contact www.grayfaces.org if you’re interested in meeting / adopting this adorable sweetie!”

Quinn is an older lady in need of a true friend in shining armor. She lived with her beloved family for many years, until their newborn’s allergies caused her to be purrsona non grata, but she would make someone a wonderful companion – is it you? Quinn is 10 years old and, in typical tortie fashion, is very loving and cuddly – on her terms. She has lived with people of all ages, as well as dogs, though her puppy knew she was the boss! She is declawed on her front paws and must be an indoor-only cat. Quinn is in good health but she’s confused and sad at the shelter, and really needs to find a home where she can blossom. You can meet her at the Humane Rescue Alliance’s adoption center at Oglethorpe Street – please consider her!

A special note from Adoptville: As many of you may have heard, Ray Noll, Humane Rescue Alliance’s Director of Field Services, passed away unexpectedly last week. Ray was a “good guy” in every possible sense of that phrase – he spent his law enforcement career working with and caring for animals, culminating in his tenure with HRA. While his position was supervisory, Ray also worked in the field, including helping this Adoptville contributor on more than one occasion. He was the kind of person who would always respond if there were an animal in trouble, because he believed that every animal was worth his time. Ray’s loss is devastating to HRA, and to the DC animal community at large. On October 3, 2017, the DC Council passed the “Standard of Care for Animals Amendment Act of 2017” which had informally been known as “Momma’s Law”. Going forward, it will be called “Ray’s Law” in honor of Ray’s incalculable contributions to the animals (and people!) of DC. While HRA has not yet made any formal requests, anyone who wants to honor Ray would certainly do so by donating to HRA in his memory. Thank you.
