If you’ve been considering adopting a pet, you probably won’t find a better opportunity than this weekend.
As part of a nationwide “Clear the Shelters” drive, the Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League will waive the adoption fee for all its animals this Saturday, July 23, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. (Dog adoptions usually range from $50 to $250, depending on age; cat adoptions typically cost $25 to $125.)
Last year’s event resulted in 151 adoptions. You can view the selection of available animals here. Both of the organization’s shelters—at 1201 New York Ave., NE and 71 Oglethorpe St., NW—are participating.
