WHS Alumni Update | Community Spirit
We celebrate a few of this week’s alumni below. Please help us make more alumni this weekend—check out our end of Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month Meow Mixer on Saturday for your last chance to adopt a feline friend for no fee! The event will take place at our Behavior & Leaning Center at 7315 Georgia Avenue NW, from noon to 5 p.m. If now isn’t a good time to adopt, consider joining our life-saving foster volunteer team.
Katarina Vilkman has kept up with us through the years after she adopted pup Mahogany and took several WHS Behavior & Learning classes and private training sessions. Her latest happy update—the family is officially growing:
“Dan and I got engaged and we included Mahogany in our engagement photo session! The photographer just loved her!”
Cecil found a forever home! Cecil came to our adoption center with a broken and misaligned leg that ultimately had to be amputated in order to save his life. The journey for Cecil was bumpy, but his complications have not made him any less loveable. He looks forward to all the affection will be receiving in his new home to make up for the time he had to miss out playing and having fun!
“Here is a picture of Lily, adopted from the Washington Humane Society in January 2011, and Owen, formerly named Mack, adopted in May. They are wonderful and love each other very much. You'd think they had known each other from birth! Thanks to everyone at the Washington Humane Society!”
“Here is a recent photo of Shiloh and his sister Biscuit. I adopted Shiloh from the Washington Humane Society in January 2010. He'll be three years old in August. Love him!”
