The Washington Humane Society (WHS) is hoping waiving fees on all black and orange animals will inspire people in the DC metro area to adopt an animal, teach it some tricks and give it some appropriate treats, during this special Halloween promotion from Oct. 25-30. This is a frighteningly good deal for potential pet owners as adoption fees are $85 for cats and $170 for dogs. You do not have to be a resident of the District of Columbia to adopt an animal from either of the two WHS adoption locations: If you are interested in adopting a dog, cat, ferret, guinea pig or bird from WHS, you’ll need the following items to get started: For more information about the Washington Humane Society’s adoption program, please visit its website, or call…

Although Gonzo was found tied to a bench at Greenbelt Lake and abandoned, he is the perfect gentleman, according to animal control officer Susie Hall.
Gonzo was abandoned and tied to a bench at Greenbelt Lake, but he hasn't abandoned his manners, according to Susie Hall, Greenbelt animal control officer.

Save up to $149 on adoption fees this month.
Summer tends to be one of the slower times for pet adoptions, according to Celia Craze, director of Greenbelt’s Department of Planning and Community Development, and the shelter is currently full of dogs and cats waiting to go to good homes. The shelter understands that some people may be interested in adopting a cat or dog, but find the fees to be a barrier. To overcome that obstacle, the department is hosting a “$1 Adoption” event for the entire month of July. “We recognize that there are potential losses of revenue to the city with this program but if this helps people be able to adopt an animal from the shelter, I say, 'Great!'” remarked Craze. Regular fees for adoption range from $100-$150 for dogs and $75 for cats. Due to reduced …
