Dap is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a two-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:

What’s up?! I am Dap. I know its kind of a silly name but they gave me that name because I have a very special talent – if you put your fist out I will give you a dap (or some folks call it giving pounds)! If you don’t believe me check out my profile pictures!

I’m also a big ole goofball. I love hanging out with my human friends and I love learning new tricks – especially when treats are involved. You might have noticed I have some scaring on my back. I don’t really remember what happened before I got to WHS but I know the folks here are taking good care of me and nursing me back to health.

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

Pet of the Week: Sir Cat

Metro Mutts

Sir Cat is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 3-year-old domestic shorthair cat who can be adopted. Here’s his bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue:

Sir Cat at your service. Looking for a chill cat to call your own? That’s me!

I am a pretty mellow guy who likes to nap, especially in high places. I also love to scratch on my cardboard scratchers. I am gentle as a lamb and I love hanging near my human friends.

How did a cat that is so great in up in the shelter you ask? My previous owner did everything she could to keep me but unfortunately times were tough and she just couldn’t keep me any more.

While I look for my forever home I am renting a room in Kitty City at the New York Ave shelter. Come meet me today and make me yours!

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: Kena

Metro Mutts

Our Hill Pet of the Week comes to us via the Washington Humane Society. Kena is a 3-year-old American Staffordshire and border collie mix in need of an adoptive home. Here’s the bio the New York Avenue NE shelter shared:

Hiya, my name’s Kena! I’m a medium-energy sweetie pie who’s looking for a new forever home. Do you think you could be my perfect match? I may seem a little timid at first, but give me just a moment and I’ll be your snuggly new best friend. I’m a more mature lady, so with me you don’t have to worry so much about all that crazy bounciness that these younger pups will give you. That doesn’t mean I won’t need any training — nobody’s perfect! But I will say that I’m a pretty awesome gal overall.

To adopt Kena or another pet from the Humane Society, see the Petango adoption site or call 202-576-6664.
