WHS Needs Foster Homes For Kittens

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) -  The Washington Humane Society is hoping you've got room in your home for a tiny bundle of purr this summer.

WHS is asking area residents to help ease the overcrowding in its adoption centers by providing temporary foster care to homeless kittens. Individuals, families, and businesses can help save lives by providing space and care for the more than 75 kittens currently in need during this busy summer season.

Foster volunteers are vital to the WHS community. Each time an animal is taken out of the adoption center and placed into a foster home, it provides space for another animal who needs special care and attention, and gives the foster pet a glimpse of what life will be like in that future forever home.

Foster Monday: Sasha

Foster Monday: Sasha

This week we get to know Sasha! Her foster caregiver Megan Troy shares Sasha’s story with us below. Let’s work together to find her a great home this week!

I’m not sure there could be a dog sweeter than this little girl.  Sasha is such a cutie!  She’s been through quite a lot in her short life, but you’d never know it.  Sasha was found as a stray and it was immediately noticed that she was missing an eye.  Not to worry, though – this little darling isn’t letting it hold her back one bit.  Sasha loves to run and play with all types of dogs, and gets along great with cats and kittens.  She absolutely adores making new friends and is such a hit at the dog park.  When she’s not having fun, she is eager to please and loves to snuggle up next you and chill.  This adorable pup is going to make some lucky person very, very happy.  If you are interested in adopting Sasha, please contact mtroy@troylawgroup.com.

Tommy and Penny
“When we went to adopt our cats at the New York Avenue adoption center we agreed on two. Penny picked out my boyfriend Mark, and Mark picked out Tommy. If it were my choice, we would have taken home all the cats in Kitty City! Here is my favorite photo of Tommy and Penny playing with a toy.”
