“Here is the story I wrote to my rescue group:

My CityDogs alum, Watson, paid his good luck forward today.

As Watson and I were coming home from a long, hot morning walk, Watson started barking out of nowhere. Watson is mostly silent, so it was weird. It was especially weird because it was a “hey there is a dog” bark, but we were walking past an abandoned building, nothing and nobody in sight.

Then I see a small gym looking bag. I had already seen it, but my neighborhood isn’t the cleanest and stuff like that is always getting left around. Then the bag started shivering.

Inside was a little doxie dog. Left on the side of the building like a piece of trash. Just with some shitty milk bones and no water, in direct sunlight. If it hadn’t been for Watson, I would have walked right past that black bag and who knows would have happened to the pup. I called 911 and animal control, who took the little pup in. (more…)

Good grief. A reader writes:

“Corner of Biltmore and Cliffbourne.

Cracking the windows is not enough on sunny days! The dog was in there for at least an hour and a half. Thanks to MPD Officer Dunn and the Humane Rescue Alliance.

Maryland plates, to the surprise of no one…”

And passes on the original report from the Adams Morgan listserv this morning: (more…)

“Our lynx point rag doll named Hexnut escaped from our place in Adams Morgan on 6/20/17 sometime in the afternoon. She is microchipped and an indoor cat. Please email me at jgao(at)jgao(dot)us if you see her. We are hoping someone on PoPville will see her and help us find her. She looks just like the picture.”

“Dear PoPville,

Does anyone recommend someone who would check on 2 cats every 2-3 days and clean the litter box, and refill water as needed? They are fed through an automatic feeder. We will be out of town for 2 weeks and looking for some help. We are in the H Street/NoMa area.”

“Dear PoPville,

I was walking my dog and a friends dog (both Labrador Retrievers) home from the 11th Street dog park in Columbia Heights on Thursday, June 1st when a loose dog approached us.

We were on Sherman Avenue NW between Lamont and Kenyon heading south. Both of my dogs were on leash but the loose dog had no collar, leash or owner present. The dog went for the black lab first and then attacked my dog, Griffin. The dog had a strong hold on Griffin’s neck and head for a while and had him pinned on his back. With the help of some people in the area we were able to get the dog off of Griffin after a few minutes and secure it with a leash. The police were called and the dog was picked up by DC animal control. (more…)

“My husband found this pooch at 4th & Upshur NW while he was out walking dogs. We’ll probably take him to the Humane Society later. Thanks!!”

“Our cat Gus, a brown tabby with stripes and a white chin, went missing between Monday the 22nd and Tuesday the 23 from our house on the 1800 block of Park Road, NW in Mt Pleasant. We are not how/when he got out, but he did. He usually has a collar with an ID tag, but it is a breakaway cat collar, and it came off. I’ve attached a picture we took Monday night of Gus. My partner Sarah rescued him about 8 years ago in Dayton, OH. He knows his way around our block, but isn’t usually gone this long. If anyone has seen him or taken him in, we’re a bit worried and can be contacted at (202) 246-0125 or via [email protected]
