EMERGENCY MEDICAL FUNDS NEEDED - We have had an influx of seriously injured dogs requiring surgery and advanced care. We have nearly depleted our emergency medical fund. Please make a donation to Sophie's Fund now, so we can provide the medical care these animals desperately need.

September 7 - HELP us find as many loving homes for adoptable pets as we can! Please join the Certified Pre-Loved Pets event ($12 adoption fees for 12 hours) and invite a few friends. 

By no fault of their own, pre-loved pets are waiting in droves for their new, permanent homes. We are extending our adoption hours (9 am – 9 pm) for this special day to encourage adopters to come and meet their “new-to-them” family pet.

More details on this event! http://on.fb.me/16U888i

It was the bark heard around the world. Yesterday, the First Family welcomed a new member into their family, Sunny, as a canine companion for Bo "The First Dog".

In honor of Sunny, the Obamas made a donation to the Washington Humane Society.

“We're honored that Barack Obama and his family have once again recognized the Washington Humane Society as the leading voice for animals and are grateful for their generous gift. We hope others are inspired to add to their family, and see the value in having multiple pets. The companionship of another dog for Bo will certainly benefit him in ways that people can’t emulate. In honor of Sunny being added to the Presidential family, WHS will be offering a 25% discount for anyone adopting an additional pet into their family for the rest of August.” - WHS President & CEO, Lisa LaFontaine

Remember our Foster Monday Lady from last week? Lady had been with us 4 long months, and finally found her forever home just a few doors down from her foster mom Kirsten! 

Please make a Foster Monday miracle come true for Haze, too. Email vanhorns@gmail.com today to meet this sweet five-year-old girl today, perfect for a family. 

Because it’s raining cats and dogs, Haze can go home vaccinated, microchipped and spayed for just a $50 adoption fee.
