WHS Pet of the Week: McCoy

WHS Pet of the Week: McCoy

McCoy is a very special boy who is looking for a very special home. He came into the Washington Humane Society (WHS) as a stray. He was severely emaciated, starving and dehydrated, barely able to stand. He went home with a WHS staff member for some much-needed foster care and with the attention of his foster home and WHS's medical director and medical team, he pulled through, gained weight and regained his health. His wounds have healed, he has doubled his body weight and he is doing really well!
 

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.
