Horses For Adoption: D.C.-Area Horses, Bunnies, A Cockatoo And A Pot-Bellied Pig Need New Homes (PHOTOS)

Think it's just dogs and cats that are up for adoption? Why, neigh!

Horses Needing Homes

This week's adoptable animals come from Maryland's Days End Farm Horse Rescue and the Middleburg Humane Foundation, a nonprofit farm shelter in Marshall, Va.

If you'd like to help the horses (and other animals) without bringing one home, both rescue groups work with volunteers -- see the respective websites for details. And to be an even more festive supporter, Day's End is hosting a beer garden at the upcoming Puppypalooza, taking place at Lilypons Water Gardens in Adamstown, Md., on May 18 and 19.

Closer to home, assuming you live in or near D.C., you can help out the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria at their upcoming Bow Wow Luau. This dog-friendly Hawaiian-themed fundraiser, sponsored by The Canine Wingman Company, will take place from 5-8 p.m. at the Hotel Monaco in Old Town Alexandria on May 23.

AWLA will also be offering half-price adoption specials from May 16-21 .
