Celebrate National Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month at the Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League

Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League’s top five reasons to adopt a shelter dog:

1.    There are GREAT dogs at our adoptions centers
We have wonderful dogs available for adoption, all shapes, sizes, and breed mixes.  The dogs you find at our adoptions centers are simply unlucky.  Usually, for circumstances beyond their control, they have found their way to our shelters and are simply looking for a new home. 

2.    Adopting a Dog from us is cost effective!
When you adopt a dog from the Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League, they will have already been spayed/neutered, received any needed vaccinations and will have been microchipped – all for the low price of an adoption.  Our adoption fees for dogs range from $250 for puppies (under six months), $200 for young dogs (six months – six years), $100 for “middle aged” dogs (seven years – nine years) and $50 for a dog 10 years or older.

3.    It’s Cool to Adopt
Take it from us, it’s a great feeling to proudly state:  “I Adopted a Shelter Dog.” 

4.    It’s Easy!!
We do our best to make sure that our potential adopters are matched up with dogs that fit their lifestyle and you must go through our application process.  But it’s not difficult or too time consuming.  We want you to find a companion animal.  Come see us!!!

5.    You Will Save a Dog’s Life
By Adopting a Shelter Dog from one of our adoptions centers, you’ll make room for one more dog to be rescued by our organization.  We transport dogs from shelters throughout the region and also from overcrowded rural shelters.  The more we adopt here in Washington, DC, the more we can save!

My handsome model is Buzz Lightyear, he is available for adoption!

Buzz Lightyear here! I'm an active 1 year old that was actually adopted from WHS about a month ago, but my new owner came down with severe dog allergies, so now I'm back! Now I'm hoping to find a new home with people that aren't going to sneeze every time I walk into the room. I get very excited around kids and other dogs and my previous owner said that I played excellently when she took me to the dog park. I have energy to burn, so I will definitely need an owner that is looking for more of a running buddy than a couch potato. I LOVE peanut butter and am very motivated by treats. I'm already learning "sit" and "lie down" and will usually do either for a treat, but I'm still learning. If you think I could be the pup for you, swing on by the shelter to meet me! You won't regret it!
