Many Washington residents are still without power. Among them are the animals at the Washington Animal Rescue League in Northwest DC. Toughing out a heat wave sans air conditioning is bad enough. Now add a fur coat to the equation, and you can imagine how uncomfortable the dogs and cats at the shelter must be.

The Washington Animal Rescue League, located at 71 Oglethorpe Street, Northwest, has more than 100 dogs and cats currently up for adoption, according to its website. Phones are not in service at the shelter, so if you’d like to help, just swing by. Here’s what the shelter needs, according to its Facebook page:

• Ice

• Gasoline for generators

• Towels and blankets

• Also, according to DCist, the shelter has a huge amount of laundry that needs washing, so if you can do a load at home, the animals there would undoubtedly appreciate it.

• Lastly, you can donate money online.
