Spring is the season of new beginnings. It's also when going outside starts seeming like a good idea again.
Put these together and you've got the perfect time for adopting yourself a new pet -- like one of these gorgeous babies:
This week's adoptable animals are a sweet bunch of cuties -- they come from the the Washington Humane Society, the Montgomery County Humane Society, the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, the Washington Animal Rescue League and the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.
And don't forget that the Washington Humane Society's Fashion For Paws fundraiser is coming up on April 13.
We love hearing from D.C.-area animal rescue and welfare groups -- email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be included in a future adoptable animals sideshow, if you've got a good animal-related story, or if you'd just like to say hello (woof is acceptable, too).
