Tigress is the Hill Pet of the Week. She is a 3-year-old Terrier English Staffordshire mix available for adoption. Here’s her bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

Hello! I’m Tigress! I was brought to the shelter as a stray several years ago and adopted quickly, but it didn’t work out with my new owner long-term so now I’m back (through no fault of my own!). My previous owner says I’m good with kids and other dogs, but I haven’t been around any kiddos here so the shelter staff doesn’t know for sure. They do know that I’m a smart dog! My old owner had me for over a year and worked with me on housebreaking and taught me tricks like how to give kisses on demand. Maybe my new owners can teach me some new tricks? Could that be you?

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

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.

Stormy is the Hill Pet of the Week. She is a Papillon mix, who is available for adoption. Here’s her bio shared by Josh White, who is fostering her for the Washington Humane Society:

Stormy is a total lovebug, with her favorite activities being cuddles and belly rubs.  She has a tendency to snore and enjoys nothing more than cozying up on a warm lap after trotting around on her walk around the block.  She also likes having her hair brushed out and looks adorable after her trip to our local groomer for a nice “summer do.”  She is friendly with other small dogs and walks well on a leash, bouncing along while stopping occasionally to smell the roses.  She’d probably be fine with calm, older children.  Most importantly, Stormy is looking for a loving forever home who will give her peace, stability and kindness for the rest of her golden years.

To adopt Stormy, please contact White at [email protected].

Cupcake is the Hill Pet of the Week. She’s a 1-year-old cat who can be adopted from City Dog Rescue’s City Kitties program. Here’s her bio shared by her foster parent, Jessie Hillenbrand:

Cupcake recently made her way up from North Carolina. She keeps consistent with her namesake and is as sweet as can be. She’s approximately 1 year old and is a purr machine who loves to snuggle, play and lick anyone petting her. Did I mention she’s teeny tiny? She’s full-grown and only about 6lbs. Cupcake is also short haired, making her a minimal shedder. She currently lives with a dog and has absolutely no issues.

She will also be great with other cats and can be a confidant to your already-existing fur friend. Please consider adopting Cupcake. She’s a real sweetheart!

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

Mason is the Hill Pet of the Week. He is a domestic shorthair available for adoption. Here’s his bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

I am not a fancy guy; I am very partial to dry food and prefer my food to come in fun shapes and colors. I am FIV+ but it doesn’t hold me back and “making biscuits” is what you will find me doing most of my day. I am looking for a home that can be patient and kind and I promise to return the favor. I don’t prefer to be picked up because it makes me feel nervous but when you call “Mason Kitty” I come running. I love toys and have grown very fond of cuddling with the soft ones and batting the ping pong balls around.

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

Azora is the Hill Pet of the Week. She’s a 2-year-old domestic shorthair mix available for adoption. Here’s her bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

I love the company of people but I also know how to keep myself entertained when we can’t be together so I’d be a great kitty for someone who works a lot or has a busy schedule. Let’s get one thing straight though: I am not a lap cat, and I like attention on my own terms. This means that sometimes I am in the mood to be pet, but most of the time I would rather do my own thing. I came to WHS as a stray over a year ago, and I was really happy to be off the streets. Now I need to find a permanent home: both in your heart and your house!

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

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.

Bailey is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 9-year-old Shepherd mix, who can be adopted. Here’s his bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

He was a wonderful family dog for 9 years, before circumstances changed and they were no longer able to keep him. He has been doing great in his foster home and loves his foster sister, Foxy. He does have a prey drive, so he needs a home without small animals (cats). He’s been good with kids and doing well with his training manners. He just loves to be outside and lay in the sun.

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

Keisha is the Hill Pet of the Week. She’s a 2-year-old pit bull terrier, who can be adopted. Here’s her bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle, yeah. Oh, hi — I didn’t see you there. I was just practicing my world renowned butt-wiggle. Give me a few treats and maybe some ear scratches, and I’d be happy to show you. I’ll probably show you even if you don’t give me treats, because that’s how happy I am just to meet people!

I’m an awesome snuggler, give lots of kisses and love playing with toys when I’m feeling energetic. I am such a people pleaser that I would be happiest as the only dog in the home — hey, more space for me to wiggle my butt.

Sir Klaxon II is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 12-year-old dachshund, who can be adopted. Here’s his bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

Sir Klaxon II here and it is your pleasure to make my acquaintance. I am a gentleman who likes to get right to business so let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am 12 years old, so I am way past the puppy stage, and I know what I like in life.

First and foremost, I would like a home to call my own. I have lived with other dogs so as long as the dog is as distinguished as I am, I wouldn’t mind living with another doggie friend. Most importantly, I would like a home where my new family is as distinguished and mature as I am.

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

Valerie is the Hill Pet of the Week. She’s a 1-year-old dog, who can be adopted. Here’s her bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

Valerie is a sweet and energetic young dog who loves running and playing with friends. She gets along well with other dogs and people, rarely barks and is house trained. At 39 pounds, she’s the perfect size!

An equally great running partner as couch cuddler, Valerie is a wonderful young dog in need of a forever home. She has not experienced much stability in her first year, so she’s working on training basics, but is eager to learn!

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

Are you looking for a cat that is both super fun and snuggly? Jack is your handsome man!

While living with his foster mom, Jack has demonstrated many talents. In fact, one might call him a Jack of all trades. He will happily inspect all mail and packages, maintain your sink plumbing, keep you company while you cook, nurse you back to health when you’re sick and play fetch!

That is right! One of Jack’s favorite games is to carry his toy mice over to where you are, deposit them next to you, and then look at you with the hopes you will throw said mice for him to fetch. He’ll then barrel full speed after them and repeat. He’s awfully considerate, as he doesn’t even make his human get up. He meets them where they are!

Everyone who has met Jack simply loves him. He’s got his humans wrapped around his paw, and even has a volunteer catsitter lined up even when his human only leaves for a night, because everyone wants to hang out with Jack.

Jack is the ripe age of two, which means he’s self sufficient, but still has a really playful side. Jack is the little buddy you never knew you needed, purrfect cat for someone who might not consider themselves a “cat person,” because he will win everyone over!

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

Coolio is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 2-year-old domestic short-haired cat, who can be adopted. Here’s his bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

I am a very sweet boy. One thing other than my wonderful personality to know about me is that I am FIV positive. This means that I will need to be an indoor-only cat and be an only cat or live with other FIV-positive kitties. If that happens, then I will live a completely normal life and just have a good story to tell.

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

Lucky is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 7-month-old pit bull mix, who can be adopted. Here’s his bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

They call me Lucky, but if you bring me home then you’ll be the lucky one! I’m an outgoing, fun-loving young pup who’s always ready for a walk or a game of fetch. I love being around all types of people, and will climb right into your lap, even if it’s the first time we’ve met! Everybody’s a friend to me.

I’m really smart too, and I’m a certified professional at “sit” and “down.” Everyone says I’m a quick learner, and every time I learn something new, I get a treat. That’s why I love training.

I’m still working on my puppy manners. It’s hard sometimes not to jump, since I’m always SO happy to see you! I’m getting better all the time, though! Right now I need to be the only pet in your life, but I’m all you could ever need.

Mila is the Hill Pet of the Week. She’s a 7-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, who can be adopted. Here’s her bio shared by the Washington Humane Society shelter on New York Avenue NE:

Miss Mila is a sharp, independent and sophisticated gal who enjoys the finer things in life, like long strolls on the beach and sipping oak aged, free range chicken broth. She appreciates fine dining, and in exchange for an appetizer or two, will happily perform her sit, stay, touch, crawl, speak, wait, backup and pick it up commands for you.

Mila is 7 years old, and above any chewing, jumping and other puppy nonsense. Inside, she is very calm, quiet and dignified and happy to siesta on a soft, comfy couch. At night, she is a world champion sleeper and won’t make a peep until the coffee is on before rising in the mornings.

But don’t let her easy going nature fool you. On a moment’s notice she is up and ready for any adventure you have in store. She may never be a marathon runner, but there is always room for family, friends, a good walk or yard exploration in her schedule.

Because Mila is very much the belle of the ball, she is looking for an experienced owner who appreciates her special status as the only animal in their life.

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