Adopt Your New Best Friend

Our dogs and cats live with foster families, who work with each pet to understand their personality and needs. This helps us make the best match between a pet and its forever home. LEARN MORE >

Foster Homes Needed!

We are desperately short on foster homes. Our current fostering volunteers are doing an awesome job, but they can’t do it alone. LEARN MORE >

mittens-1 mittens-2






This is no way to start life! Little Mittens was found in a cardboard box with no blanket and no food, shivering away. A kind person found her and asked us if we could help her. Of course we couldn’t turn her away.

Mittens is coming around, developing her personality but most of all enjoying the warmth of a home, a gentle hand and love. She’s 9 weeks and weighs just 2 pounds. If you would like to help her grow and blossom, let us know!

Please consult our ADOPTION FAQS before contacting us. If Mittens is not listed as Pending or Adopted, you may assume she is still available.


lucy1 lucy2

Lucy was found abandoned in an empty row house undergoing renovation. Her rescuer intended to keep her, but after many months it has become clear that although Lucy adores people and is very affectionate with them, she cannot live with dogs or other cats. Consequently, Lucy is currently living in one room, and her rescuer believes she deserves more.

This gorgeous, pure white cat is about 2 years old, has been spayed, and is up to date on her shots. If you live in the MD/DC/NoVA area and are interested in adopting Lucy, email

Morty. I’m adopted!

Morty_Aug9 MortybMorty was adopted January 2015!

Morty is an 8 year old lab mix with the enthusiasm of a puppy and a desire to please. He is happiest just hanging with his people. And getting treats.

He enjoys learning new tricks. He knows his basic commands, as well as advanced ones like leave it and touch, and tricks like play dead.

Being around other dogs at adoption shows is a bit stressful for him, so send us a note and we’ll set up a private meeting.
