Search for a Companion

This database accessed in the links below contain our animals available for adoption.  Since the merger of the Washington Humane Society and Washington Animal Rescue League, the combined organization has two adoption centers (Oglethorpe St., NW and New York Ave., NE).    You may access the database by selecting the type of animal you are interested in viewing in the links below. You will then be re-directed to the Washington Humane Society website where you may view adoptable animals available at both locations.






We use the “Meet Your Match” system to help determine what pet is right for you.  As you will see, each animal has a “color” matching their canine-ality(tm) or feline-ality(tm) — the dog or cat’s personality.  Adopters are encouraged to determine what “color” pet best matches their lifestyle by taking our surveys on this page.

In addition, the convenient links below include the applications to adopt.
