“Bully mix found at 38th and Garfield NW last night. Animal control brought her to Humane Rescue. She’s super sweet and friendly. Most likely under a year old. I called Humane Rescue this morning and they said she wasn’t chipped.”
Last seen at Pennsylvania and Potomac Ave SE. His collar and leash were found at the footbridge along the Anacostia trail.
His name is Frank–He’s a Liver Tan Miniature schnauzer, 3 YO and weighs 15 lbs.
He’s extremely scared and fearful of strangers and will run.
Please call or text 803-479-7517 if you find or see him.“
3210 Georgia Ave, NW
From District Dogs:
“District Dogs, a locally-owned pet care company founded in 2014, is heading south… Southeast, that is. Owner Jacob Hensley and his energetic team of dog walkers and daycare attendants are expanding their reach to the thriving Navy Yard neighborhood. [1221 Van Street SE]
With over four years of doing a brisk dog-walking business and almost two years of providing daycare and boarding services at their Park View location, the move marks District Dogs’ first foray outside of Northwest DC. (more…)
“We have been reunited with Mr. Midnight thanks to the posting. A super woman that happened to be in the neighborhood fixing a flat tire on her bike (after completing the 50 States Ride) found him hanging around near Patrick’s Pet Care and went above and beyond to make sure he was safe. Thanks so much again for the quick response. I’m truly grateful to you and the amazing DC Community!!”
Our sweet dog Mr. Midnight snuck out last night and is missing. (more…)

And so it goes with the closing of the outdoor pools for humans – the pups get their turn before the pools are drained:
“Mayor Bowser’s administration and DC Department of Parks and Recreation will host the 10th Annual Doggie Day Swim on Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Upshur Main & Kiddie Pool (4300 Arkansas Ave., NW); Francis Pool (25th & N St., NW); and Randall Pool (South Capitol and I Sts., SW).
The end of the outdoor swimming season signifies the District’s dog day of summer and this event gives our four-legged neighbors access to DPR pools for the day to enjoy a swim and play fun aquatics games.
Admission is free, however all dogs must have a valid and original DC Department of Health (DOH) issued dog license (no photocopies) and tag to enter the pool. (more…)
I’m trying to get the word out about a hit and run that occurred early Sunday morning around 12:46 AM to see if anyone has any information. I was crossing Columbia Rd. at the intersection of Quarry Rd. from South to North (from the Federalist pig side to Quarry rd) with my dog Tiger Lily. There is a well marked crosswalk with three different signs reminding drivers that there is a crosswalk and that it is DC law to stop for pedestrians. We looked to the left and the car stopped, started to cross, and the car coming from 16th street seemed to be stopping, then didn’t. The car hit Tiger head on at about 20 mph, then hit the breaks and I was hit very slightly. She is a small 45 lb. dog and was propelled about 10 feet up and 15 feet out before hitting the ground on the other side of Quarry rd; the leash was ripped out of my hand on impact. Fortunately nothing was broken, but she was in so much shock that she took off in a sprint, making it across several more streets almost to Woodley park, where some fellow citizens caught her on the Calvert street bridge. Several Adams Morgan citizens jumped in to help and we had a small army of us chasing after to catch her. I am so thankful to those neighbors. (more…)

My dog, who is a 6 month old golden retriever 25 pound puppy, stuck his head through a fence where someone had made a make-shift rat poison station in a yard in Mount Pleasant (close to the intersection of Irving and Mount Pleasant Street but it was in someone’s yard.) This consisted of blue cylinders of rat poison out in the open on a piece of newspaper with a bait of half a corn on the Cobb. Being a puppy who eats everything really quickly my dog ate it (both the rat poison and the Cobb)and now is in the hospital under a 24 hour watch. (more…)
I was heading into DCUSA in Columbia Heights yesterday afternoon when I saw something that disturbed me. There’s always a crowd of people outside the entrance selling random things: fruit, art, toys, shoes, whatever.
This time, I saw a pair of glass tanks, one containing fish, the other turtles.
As you would expect there was a huge crowd around the tank, reaching in, touching the animals, arguing with the vendor, everything. (more…)
Props to the Humane Rescue Alliance for saving them and thanks to Andrea for sending word.
