Puppy: No Puppies
Profile: Since its creation in 1914, The Washington Animal Rescue League has been a leader in the field of animal welfare, caring for homeless and abused animals in our nationâs capital and placing them in loving adoptive homes. A private, not-for-profit organization, the League relies solely on private donations and volunteer efforts to support its rescue work. In 2005 through 2006, the League underwent a revolutionary transformation, making it one of the worldâs most progressive animal rehabilitation centers. The renovated shelter is designed entirely from the animalsâ point of view to promote the physical, mental, and social healing of animals recovering from a previous life of trauma. With as many as 300 dogs and cats available at any given time, the League is one of the largest companion animal adoption centers in the Northeast. All of the animals receive full medical and behavioral evaluations, and our adoption staff is adept at working with people to ensure their new family memberâs successful transition into a permanent, loving home. Since 1932, the League has offered free and low-cost veterinary care to the animal companions of our low-income neighbors. In 1996, it opened a busy, full-service, on-site veterinary clinic to serve both these clients and the shelter animals awaiting new homes. The clinic was renovated and expanded in 2006. Its veterinarians, who are known both for their skill and compassion, currently treat about 7,000 animals each year. Financial assistance is available to those who need it.
