Washington Humane Society Celebrates “Senior” Animals in May

From Jacquie Toppings: The Washington Humane Society (WHS) is recognizing long-time and older animal residents during this “graduation” season by waiving all adoption fees on its senior pets this weekend, May 18-20.

“Our adoption centers are temporary homes to hundreds of healthy, family-friendly animals, who became homeless through no fault of their own,” said Stephanie Shain, Chief Operating Officer, Washington Humane Society. “During this especially busy spring ‘baby animal season’ that has filled our facilities with new residents, we have a number of pets who have simply been overlooked, especially our older pets, and they often make perfect laid-back companions for busy Washingtonians.”

WHS Alumni Update: Swoosh!

WHS Alumni Update: Swoosh!

By Terry and Leilani Ames

We recently received a letter from the Washington Humane Society (WHS) asking how Swoosh was doing. We adopted “Spain” in February 2011 and renamed the boy Swoosh (for the spot on his backside that resembles the Nike "swoosh" logo). When we got him our vet noted that he was overweight and needed to lose some pounds since it seemed his back legs were having a tough time supporting him. He suggested that we watch what he eats and get him exercising.
