This Month’s Pets Are Going to the Dogs!

By Gina Hardter Mars 3-year-old Mars is ready for his close-up.  This handsome terrier mix epitomizes the term “puppy dog eyes,” and he has no compunctions about using them.  Mars’ favorite activities are fetch, tug-of-war, and, of course, snuggling.  He’s currently spending his time in the care of one of the AWLA’s amazing foster caregivers, so to schedule time to meet him, email Adopt@AlexandriaAnimals.org or call 703.746.4774. Kip Handsome Kip is definitely a catch.  With his engaging smile and floppity ears, he’s as good-looking as he is good-natured, and sweet Kip is always ready for a good time.  Kip would prefer to be the only pup in his future palace (he prefers not to share laps), but he’s interested in all kinds of families, big or small, so if you think you might be his special match, schedule time to meet him by calling 703.746.4774 or emailing Adopt@AlexandriaAnimals.org. Jane & Josie Best buds Jane and Josie are looking to expand their circle of friendship.  These 10-year-old boxer mixes have been together their whole lives, and they can’t wait to continue their adventure together to their new home.  These chilled-out ladies love the life of leisure, from mornings sleeping in to evening cuddle sessions on the couch.  Add to their Best Friends Club by scheduling time to meet them at Adopt@AlexandriaAnimals.org or by calling 703.746.4774.

Schedule time to meet with any of these amazing adoptables by emailing Adopt@AlexandriaAnimals.org or calling 703.746.4774 opt. 2. Pisco Who’s ready for the weather to warm up?  This pup!  9-year-old Pisco is all about the outdoor activities, but who wants to hang out in the cold?  Luckily, with spring having sprung, Pisco can show off his amazing leash manners on long leisurely walks or enjoy a super-fun game of Tug-of-War – without losing his footing on the ice!  And did he mention all of the amazing spring smells?!?  Still, at the end of the day, Pisco’s favorite thing is to curl up on the couch with his human friends, so he hopes you’re as excited about that as he is! Lars Office Admin Lars reporting for duty!  This helpful fellow is exactly what your work-from-home set-up needs, and he guarantees to increase productivity, from finding the highest perch from which to supervise to QCing your keyboard, as many as 20 times a day.  Just thinking of what you can accomplish with such a productive pet on your team?!?   Eric Eric may be small, but he sees himself as a Gentleman Adventurer, exploring the world on his stubby legs.  From re-arranging his kennel space to traipsing the couch on movie night, Eric can do it all, and pretty quickly too when there are yummy fruit treats at sake.  Schedule time to say hi to Eric today!

Chunky What’s Chunky’s favorite thing about spring?  Using walks as an excuse to stop and smell the roses…or the tulips….or the daffodils…or that pretty flowering tree over there.  Chunky is excited for the opportunity to be outside and feel the (no-longer freezing) breeze in his ears, and he’s ready for some good long walks with his new family.  Help Chunky’s spring wishes come true; email Adopt@AlexandriaAnimals.org or call 703.746.4774 to learn how to meet Chunky from his foster home.   Munchkin April showers may bring May flowers, but in March, Munchkin is just hoping for a sunny spot in the window to watch the world go by – and a little bird-watching could be fun too!  2-year-old Munchkin is the type of cat who is comfortable doing his own thing, but when he’s looking for affection, he’ll be by your side, head butting your hand for gentle ear scratches and head rubs.  Munchkin would prefer a household with adults or older children who understand and respect his zen in the sun vibe.  Learn more about him and how to meet him in his foster home by emailing Adopt@AlexandriaAnimals.org or calling 703.746.4774.   Moana There’s nothing better than fresh springtime vegetables, at least according to Moana the guinea pig!  3-year-old Moana enjoys all kinds of healthy treats, from apples to broccoli and even kale!  You could call her a bit of a Fit Fanatic.  Moana also enjoys hanging out with her favorite people, taking in a movie or two on the couch and playing in her very own castle.  Schedule time to meet her in her foster home by emailing Adopt@AlexandriaAnimals.org or calling 703.746.4774.
