WHS Animals are Coming to a Neighborhood Near You! | Community Spirit
Through our many engaging adoption, outreach, and special events, we’ve always known that bringing our animals directly to the communities that support them is key to helping more pets find more homes. The Washington Humane Society (WHS) is thrilled to announce the unveiling of our brand new mobile adoption center, an accessible animal transport van that will help us do just that (see a sneak peek, left!).
The vehicle was acquired thanks to a $150,000 grant from the Stanton Foundation, a New York based foundation created by Dr. Frank Stanton, a media pioneer and lifelong dog owner and admirer. This incredible gift will allow DC animals to meet members of our community in the neighborhoods where they live and work, providing tremendous opportunity to build hundreds, and eventually thousands more families.
To celebrate the arrival of our new mobile adoption center, we are hosting an unveiling in conjunction with our 8th Annual Doga event on Saturday, May 12, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Rose Park (near 26th and P Streets NW)! We hope you will join us to meet adoptable pets; tour the vehicle and submit suggestions to “name” it through a Facebook voting contest; ask volunteers about fostering and helping WHS; and participate with your dog in doga (doggie yoga) with Tranquil Space Yoga, an hour of stretching, snacks, and dog treats by Doggy Style from 11 a.m. to noon.
To save more animals’ lives, we will host more off-site adoption events at DC area businesses and high-traffic locations throughout the region. Visit www.washhumane.org/events to see where we’ll be next!
