From the Washington Humane Society (1201 New York Ave NE):
Due to a large influx of animals, we are waiving all adoption fees through Chrismas Eve. As the open access shelter in DC we will never turn an animal away for any reason, but we are desperately running out of space.
Sadly, this time of year is often a time when more animals are brought to WHS as families look for housing options for pets during winter vacations, or because they can’t afford the costs of their care.
If you, or someone you know is considering adoption, stop by and visit our animals. As always, all adopters are vetted through our adoption questionnaire and interview process, and all WHS pets go home spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. There is a $15 dog license fee for dog adopters living in DC.

“Spotted this dog hanging outside Aldi”
Anyone know the breed? Looks a bit like a chow mix or something to me. Is it pit-bull like?

Whoa! Here’s a pet of a different kind! Awesome! Emily writes:
Here are two new pets my significant other has grown attached to. He now sets out some oats in a baking ring for them, and feeds them each morning before work. Don’t worry, though, I’m sure to clean the ring thoroughly each time before baking! We would ask them to leave, but not sure how to approach them without escalating the situation unnecessarily.
What do you think- is this a great way to spread the plague, or just two furry friends? What do you feed mice that you find in your house? I’ve found that they really enjoy oats and peanut butter, but sometimes treat them to leftovers from Checkers if they behave!
