Urgent Cat Foster Families Needed

Urgent Cat Foster Families Needed

Thanks to our caring community, we found the foster homes needed and then some for the dogs who were temporarily displaced during a renovation project at our New York Avenue adoption center. We can’t thank our friends and supporters enough for stepping in to help animals in need. In an effort to provide a better environment for all of the animals in our care, major improvement projects continue at our New York Avenue facility, and this time, it is our cats who are looking to their community for help.

Have a little room for us?

Have a little room for us?

As the only open access shelter in Washington, DC, WHS takes in an average of 30 animals every day. The WHS team works around the clock to provide comfort to all of the animals in our care, but our space and resources are limited. Thanks to the hard work and determination of the WHS team, the New York Avenue shelter facility is undergoing major renovations in the coming months to help us provide a better environment for all of our animal residents while they are in our care. 

A construction project is currently taking place in the main holding kennel.
