Labor Day weekend was a GREAT success for our animals! Between Thursday and Sunday, 61 furballs found new families, including Roxy, senior pooch Rockafeller, and our Pet of the Week, Patch! Congrats to everyone on their new best friend.

Hangout with us today on #PetDay right from the comfort of your own monitor! From 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. Hear from a bunch of animal welfare organizations, ask about the adoptable pets who will be featured during the hang out, and engage with fellow pet lovers, animal experts, and pet adoption advocates. We'll be on air at 2:15, and you can hear all about us and our adoptables at 2:55.

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
