First Families and Their Pets at the White House

The Washington Animal Rescue League’s speakers series hosts Dr. William B. Bushong, vice president of historical research and new media at the White House Historical Association.

White House pets have a big job: providing companionship to the president and his family, humanizing the president’s political image, and often enduring the spotlight of the media.  Dr. Bushong gives an illustrated presentation covering 200 years of presidential pet-keeping.

Dr. Bushong’s presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m., following a reception from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.

The League would like to thank Aronson, LLC, for their generous sponsorship of this event.
