Rescue League Saves Animals from West Virginia



    Meet a Former Radio City Rockette Who Got Her Life Back

    If you’re looking to add another furry friend to your family, the Washington Animal Rescue League has some new dogs and cats available.

    The group rescued animals, including two 6-week-old puppies, from a West Virginia shelter that’s set to close Aug. 1.

    “We’ll find them permanent homes where they will be cherished family members for the rest of their lives," said League President and CEO Dr. Gary Weitzman.

    Some of these animals will be available for adoption in two weeks.

    The League is holding an Adopt-a-thon from 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6 through 8 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 7. During that weekend, adopters may pay what they can to adopt. (Adoption fees are usually $150-$250 for dogs and $50-$100 for cats.) All animals for adoption are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and have received medical and behavioral evaluations.
