It's official! The Washington Animal Rescue League and the Washington Humane Society, long-established animal welfare organizations, merged to become one dynamic organization providing exemplary care and services for all animals in the District of Columbia. The historic merger on February 10th was possible, in part, because of cooperation between the two organizations, community support and the need for truly comprehensive services. Joined forces makes for a stronger, more united front to protect animals, place them in loving forever homes, and provide a multitude of services and programs for animals and the people who care about and for them. And, with the merger comes a new masthead for warlkids.blogspot.com!

A week after the blizzard a Girl Scout troop of caring Brownies visited WARL. Volunteer extraordinaire, Roxanne, greeted the girls and their moms and introduced the group to the many cats and dogs waiting for their forever homes. The group brought donations for the animals and their troop leader followed up declaring a new family obsession -- Animal Planet's PUPPY and KITTEN cams housed at WARL. We would like to send a HUGE Thank You to WARL and Roxanne! The tour was great, and the girls and parents both learned a lot about how WARL serves the community. The puppy and kitty cam are now fixtures in my house. My daughter and son love it!
