Homeless Dogs In Washington, DC

The Washington, DC area shelters are full with dogs that need a loving home. The Washington Animal Rescue League’s job is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home animals who have nowhere else to go. They are committed to strengthening and preserving the human-animal bond by supporting animals in their homes through affordable veterinary care, community outreach, and education.

In May 2008, a program was started called "Dog Tags." This program gives soldiers an opportunity to work with dogs to train them to be better pets. There is also another program called "Pets2Vets" that pairs veterans with homeless pets by arranging adoptions of shelter animals.

If you find a stray or injured animal, please call your local animal care and control agency. You can search for your local agency online at Pets 911. To report a case of animal cruelty, please contact your local law enforcement agency.
