Borderstanians, if you are thinking about adopting a cat or dog in the new year, please consider a rescue animal. From Metroferals via the Dupont Circle listserv:

Lots of cats and kittens will be available for adoption at these events. These cats were rescued by Metroferals and other local, nonprofit groups that seek to humanely control the outdoor cat population. Feral cats are trapped, neutered, and returned to their supervised colonies. Only tame animals are offered for adoption.

  • When: Saturday, January 3, and Saturday, January 10; noon to 3 p.m.
  • Where: PETCO, across from Cleveland Park Metro at 3505 Connecticut Ave NW (Park ‘N Shop Center) about one block north of the Cleveland Park Metro Stop (Red Line)

This dog is not at WARL -- but she is really cute.

This dog is not at WARL — but she is really cute.

The Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL) is a wonderful organization that rescues and boards cats and dogs. (Full disclosure: Our old dog, Rosie, came from WARL and we have donated money to them.) WARL just took in 100 puppies from a West Virginia puppy mill who need homes. Most are Dachsunds, but there are also Yorkshire Terriers, King Charles Cavalier Spaniels, Shih Tzus and Lhasa Apsos.

You can also donate to WARL to help them cover the cost of caring for these 100 new puppies. It is important to note that WARL is a no-kill shelter. All animals remain at WARL until they find homes. WARL is located in D.C. at 71 Ogelthorpe Street NW.

Excerpts from the WARL news release:

August 27, 2008) Washington, DC – The Washington Animal Rescue League is rescuing over 100 dogs who were removed from a Parkersburg, West Virginia puppy mill. A total of 1,000 dogs, nearly all of them dachshunds, were rescued — an operation that is the largest puppy mill raid in West Virginia history and one of the largest in the nation.

The dogs are mostly dachsunds, but also include Yorkshire terriers, King Charles Cavalier spaniels, shih tzus and Lhasa apsos. Authorities removing the dogs noted multiple signs of neglect — matted fur, dehydration, and eye and ear problems — and expressed doubts that anyone could provide adequate care for so many dogs.

The League estimates that these dogs may become available for adoption as early as Wednesday, September 3. (Emphasis mine.)
