HSPO Announcement



Hi, my name is Denver.  I am a Yorkie mix approximately 4 years old.  I arrived at the shelter on July 20 where my owners tied me to the bench with a note in front of the Washington Area Humane Society.  I am a very sweet dog waiting for my forever home.  I am up to date on my vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.  Visit me at the shelter today!




Hey, Im Felicia! I am a very sweet tabby who loves to be held and brushed. I get along with the other cats here at the shelter but we are not sure about dogs. I would also do well with children. I am spayed, up to date on my vaccinations and microchipped.
