Open Adoptions at Holiday Heist!

This year we are very excited to announce that, in addition to donating all proceeds from our raffle drawings to the Washington Humane Society, we have also invited them to bring some very lovable, very sweet dogs and puppies that need homes for an open adoption during the Holiday Heist!

If you have the room in your hearts and in your homes, please come by to meet some wonderful companions who are looking for their perfect match.

Washington Humane Society (WHS) is the only Congressionally-chartered animal welfare agency in the United States, and has been the area’s leading voice for animals since 1870. As the only open-access shelter in the Nation’s Capital, the Washington Humane Society provides comfort and care to over 30,000 animals each year through its broad range of programs and services including sheltering, adoption, spay and neuter, CatNiPP, humane law enforcement, lost and found, human–animal therapy programs and humane education.

WHS enforces all of the District's animal laws under an 1870 Congressional charter, and all animal control laws under contract with the DC government. WHS operates the only open-access shelter in Washington, DC; a private shelter on 7319 Georgia Avenue, NW, and the DC Shelter (under contract by the Department of Health) on 1201 New York Avenue, NE.

In addition to the two animal shelters, WHS operates a low-cost National Capital Area Spay & Neuter Center, on 1001 L Street, NE, located in the heart of Capitol Hill, a new animal training facility located on 7315 Georgia Avenue, NW, and the administrative offices, located on 4590 Macarthur Blvd. NW.

WHS has ninety dedicated employees, twenty-two distinguished members on the Board of Directors and more than three-hundred and fifty active volunteers; now, you have an opportunity to be a part of their good cause.

Adopt a friend, donate money or enter our raffle for some great prizes. Either way, you'll feel great and help a furry friend find a home.
