BY Blog Editor

Especially if you’re working from home at your Wray 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.

Humane Rescue Alliance, located at 1201 New York Ave NE, Washington, DC which is 16 minutes from your Wray apartment, has more than 150 years of experience protecting animals, supporting families and advocating for positive change to create a world where all animals can thrive.

They treat every animal as an individual and emphasize specialized care for both animals and their families. Through their five campuses, 19 animal control contracts and direct care, rescue and community-based services, they are the largest animal services provider in the region, touching the lives of over 100,000 animals annually. 

Capital Cats, located at 223 9th St SE, Washington, DC which is 11 minutes from your Wray apartment, is a group of foster households that strives to place every cat in a happy forever home.

Capital Cats began in the early 1990s as a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) effort by a group of Capitol Hill residents. By 1997 it had expanded to include weekly adoption events for kittens and cats that had been abandoned. It was incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in 2006.
