Upcoming Events to benefit Cats, K9s and Kids

Join the Washington Humane Society on Wednesday July 1st for a Purrfectly Patriotic Cat Adoption Event at their New York Avenue Shelter.


Dogtopia of Alexandria is hosting a K9 dog wash to support police dogs on Sunday July 19th. A few years ago tragedy struck in Prince William County when a working K9 was accidentally shot by a fellow police officer who did not realize that it was a police K9. To help prevent this from happening in Alexandria, this fund raiser will go towards the purchase of tracking harnesses for all of the Alexandria Police K-9's. These harnesses clearly identify the canines as police K9's and are complete with police badges. The harness also have an infra-red light that can be tracked by a helicopter. The harnesses will let everyone know they are police K9's and will hopefully ensure that a tragic accident will not happen in Alexandria.


On Wednesday, July 29 the city's VIP will be seen at the W hotel for the Wednesday Warm-up for KEENfest. KEEN is a national, nonprofit volunteer-led organization that provides one-to-one exercise and recreational opportunities for children & young adults with developmental and physical disabilities. There are a limited number of tickets, so be sure to buy yours now.
