Especially if you’re working from home at your RESA apartment, there’s nothing like a furry friend to keep you company – especially if it’s one that doesn’t require walks or midnight cries to be let outside! That’s where cats come in, which can be your pet and pal without too much work.
On National Kitten Day on July 10, finally get that kitten you’ve been thinking about by first heading to one of these local animal shelters. Choose either a laid-back cat, a playful cat or a loving cat to fit your lifestyle.
Alley Cat Rescue, located at 3906 Rhode Island Ave, Brentwood, MD which is worth every minute of the 15-minute drive from your RESA apartment, was founded in 1997 by Louise Holton, who was one of a few pioneers who brought Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) to national attention in 1990.
Alley Cat Rescue’s commitment is to help stray and outdoor community cats in the United States and around the world by promoting humane care to improve cats’ lives. They work to reduce the number of feral cats living in colonies through TNR as well as adoption.
Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, located at 5159 Lee Hwy., Arlington, VA which will take you 20 minutes to arrive at by car, envisions a world where all animals are spayed and neutered and where all pets have responsible families and loving homes.
Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a volunteer-powered nonprofit dedicated to rescuing homeless, neglected and abandoned animals from euthanasia and finding them forever homes. They educate the community on responsible pet parenting, including the importance of spay/neuter, obedience training and good nutrition.
