Bandit is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 4-month-old cat who can be adopted from City Dog Rescue’s City Kitties program. Here’s his bio shared by his foster parent, Katie Baumer:

Young Bandit recently took a lengthy road trip up to DC to become a City Kitty. The little guy was off to a rough start and was congested with a cold, and also underweight! Even with the uphill battle, he was quick to take in his new surroundings and explore and cuddle. He’s now chubby and cured, and you can tell how thankful he is about his new life. He’s so happy to have some space to run around in and does lots of silly kitten jumps and leaps. He also loves to be near his person. Whether it’s running between your feet as you walk around, or snuggling up next to you, Bandit will be there keeping you company. He loves to be picked up and carried around, and purrs easily to show his contentment.

To adopt Bandit, see City Dog Rescue’s website.

Theodore is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 9-year-old domestic shorthair cat who loves to cuddle and can be adopted. Here’s his bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue:

Theodore is the biggest lover you could ever meet! Although he has been diagnosed with kitty kidney failure (say that 5 times fast), he is all snuggles and cuddles and just likes to be near his human.

As a newly senior gentleman at just 9 years old, he has plenty of love to still give and life to live! The advantages of being in the senior club is that he doesn’t mess around with tearing things up or running around anymore – just needs a comfy blanket and a lap to snuggle with.

He absolutely loves tummy rubs and has a purr machine that never quits! To learn more about Theodore and his diagnosis, please contact his foster mom at [email protected] or check out his Instagram @whs_theodore.

Hill Pet of the Week: Daisy

Metro Mutts

Daisy is the Hill Pet of the Week. She’s a 6-year-old Terrier/Pit Bull mix who loves lounging around and can be adopted. Here’s her bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue:

Miss Daisy here! True to my name, I’m looking for a place to sprawl out in the sun where I can bloom into the goofy, cuddle bug that I am.

Belly rubs and lounging with my human are some of my favorite pastimes. I’d like to share my home with humans and lots of treats please. I like to think I am the perfect age, over my pup years and not yet into my senior years.

I like hiking and long walks with my human friends followed by napping on the couch and watching movies all night. Come meet me at the New York Ave shelter today!

Chips and Guacamole are the Hill Pets of the Week. The sister cats were adopted from the Feline Foundation of Greater Washington. Here’s their biography shared by their owner Beth Roberson:

Chips and Guacamole (sister kitties) came to me via the Feline Foundationof Greater Washington.  They are very different from each other, but their personalities complement each other well and they take care of each other.

Chips is a spunky, playful little girl who loves to give kisses, roll on her back for belly rubs, try to catch the red laser dot and steal her sister’s treats.  She loves to meet new people and will sometimes settle down in your lap for the afternoon, especially if there is a soft blanket involved.

Guacamole is a sweetheart who is shyer and more reserved.  She loves to catch a catnip buzz, watch life through the window, knead blankets relentlessly and occasionally show her sister who’s boss.

Hill Pet of the Week: Fiona

Metro Mutts

Fiona is the Hill Pet of the Week. She’s a 5-year-old Terrier who can be adopted. Here’s her bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

Hi there! My name is Fiona. I am told that I have the softest fur and the sweetest brown eyes.

I was found after being abandoned and I’m a little shy and uncertain of myself at the moment, but if you show me some affection I won’t be able to help myself from giving you gentle kisses and little nuzzles. The rest of the time I’ll give you your space and find a quiet corner to curl up in until you want to pet me again. And, if you have a stuffed lamb or teddy bear for me to take with me to my corner I’ll be sure to keep them warm and safe while we sleep.

My doggie foster brother and sister say I’m there to play, but I much prefer to snuggle with them. My foster Mom wants me to mention that I’m perfectly house-trained and have even learned to use pee pads for those days she has to work late and can’t get home to let me out. My ideal home would be a calm, quiet environment with someone who would be willing to help me with my confidence.

To adopt Fiona or other pets from the Humane Society, see the Petango adoption siteor call 202-576-6664.

Hill Pet of the Week: Rocko

Metro Mutts

Rocko is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 1-year-old Terrier/ Pit Bull mix who can be adopted. Here’s his bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

Rocko here! I’m a super lovable dog available for adoption at the Washington Humane Society’s New York Ave shelter.

I came to the shelter because my family could no longer care for me. Although I am still a young dog I’m medium energy and to be honest my favorite past time is hanging out with human friends. As you can tell from my photos I am really good at sitting in my friend’s laps.

I also like to go on long walks and runs and I think I would probably love going on hikes – checking out nature and seeing new sites with my humans sounds like a perfect day to me. Come meet me today and make me a part of your family!

To adopt Rocko or other pets from the Humane Society, see the Petango adoption site or call 202-576-6664.

This weekend, the Washington Humane Society will run a special adoption price of $11.26 (the date of Thanksgiving) for all animals.

Hill Pet of the Week: Alice

Metro Mutts

Alice is the Hill Pet of the Week. She’s a 1-year-old Terrier/Pit Bull mix who can be adopted. Here’s her bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

Don’t let my short stature fool you- I’m a girl with a BIG personality! My favorite activities include headbutting people to get them to pet me, running around with my favorite toys, and as you might have seen in my profile pictures, snuggling in my favorite person’s lap.

I’m a social butterfly who will greet every person who passes me by. At only a year old I’m full grown in size but still have some of that puppy energy left over- I’ll definitely need some exercise and training before I’m worn out at the end of the day.

To adopt Alice or other pets from the Humane Society, see the Petango adoption site or call 202-576-6664.

Pet of the Week: Frack

Metro Mutts

Frack is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s the first fish to win Pet of the Week, and he was originally adopted from a carnival at RFK Stadium. Since then, he’s been swimming around a Hill East aquarium. Here’s his biography, allegedly written by Frack himself and shared by his owner Laural Veloz:

My name is Frack, I’m a once orphaned goldfish adopted from the carnival at RFK stadium along with my brother Frick.  Sadly, my brother didn’t make the transition from the carnival life as well as I did. Frick passed away shortly after coming home, but I am a true fighter and am thriving in a fifteen gallon aquarium in Hill East, thanks to my new parents.  And there is even talk of a larger aquarium as I continue to grow.  Did you know that the goldfish like me that you adopt at a carnival can grow as big as a foot long?  And did you know that I can live some twenty-five to thirty years if my parents take good care of me?

Without my brother Frick to play with, my parents felt the need to give me some companionship so they also adopted two snails named Smith and Wesson.  Thanks to my new friends I have grown from a shy little guppy to a happy well adjusted goldfish that loves to photo bomb pictures when my mom and dad are trying to take snapshots of my aquarium mates.  I am always waving my fins and wearing a big gulping smile when my parents arrive home each night. I can never get enough to eat and often trick my dad into feeding me more even after mom has already given me dinner.  I enjoy swimming through rocks, bubbling and chasing Smith and Wesson.

Hill Pet of the Week: Duke

Metro Mutts

Duke is the Hill Pet of the Week. He is a nine-month-old black Labrador retriever with a lot of energy. Here’s his bio shared by his owner, Ryan Gearhart:

Duke is an avid Nationals fan. He is still confident that they will make the playoffs this season. He loves going on long walks through the beautiful Capitol Hill neighborhood and Yards Park. Duke loves to go shopping for fresh farmers market veggies every Saturday at Eastern Market. he is always down to meet new friends (both animal and human) and enjoys running, playing tug-o-war and wrestling with his buddies. This guy loves to show off his webbed feet and swimming skills whenever he has the opportunity.

He dislikes it when mommy and daddy are trying to rest. Duke will have none of this! He will make his discontent known with pleasant (not annoying) barking and by dropping toys in our laps. We’re not sure why, but bales of hay scare the heck out of him.

Hill Pet of the Week: Rocky

Metro Mutts

Rocky is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 3-year-old beagle mix, who loves to spend time with other dogs. Here’s his bio shared by his owner, Lari Lavigne:

When asked what he’s mixed with, our usual response is, “half beagle half trouble.” He loves going to Marion Park and Garfield Park to see his friends and spends many weekdays in DogMa [daycare and boarding for dogs], which he also loves. On weekends, he gets to walk all the way down to the National Mall and back to his home near Eastern Market. His favorite adventure is visiting our cottage in Northern Neck, Va. where he can run free and chase rabbits and squirrels until he’s completely worn out. His idea of relaxing at the river house is a snooze on the back of the boat while we fish.

He loves going to the market on the weekends and knows the blue reusable bag we always take. When we pull that out, he starts running around the living room and jumping at the front door. He will literally pull you all the way to Metro Mutts and then run in to immediately sit by the cash register until they give him a treat. No . . . he’s not spoiled. He’s the best sight in the world after a long day at the office.

Max and Mila are the Hill Pets of the Week. Max is a 5-year-old golden retriever. Mila is a mutt who is about 5 years old. She is probably some sort of a rottweiler-shepherd mix. Here are their bios shared by their owner, Elizabeth Johnston:

Max and Mila are best friends. He loves tennis balls. She loves stealing them from him. He loves lazing around. She loves forcing him to wrestle with her. Both dogs love Lincoln Park, especially if it is muddy.
