Puppies and Kittens have wish lists too

Obviously wish #1 is a good home. If you’ve already got as many little furry children as you can handle or can’t adopt for some other reason, well, you can still help the four-legged needy.

Fairfax animal shelter put out a cutely-worded announcement that they have a holiday gift wishlist of their own, but the fact is that all our local societies have needs – yuletime or not – and many will take in-kind donations. The Washington Human Society also will take in-kind donations if you’d like to give rawhide chews rather than money – though they’ll take cash too. The Arlington Animal Welfare League will also take your donations of money or stuff[pdf].

The Montgomery Country shelter only explicitly mentions monetary donations; same for the Prince George’s County shelter. But if you really want to give stuff rather than cash, give them a call – it’s possible they’d be happy to have it.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
