For the Love of Cats, Dogs and…Sushi

On the same week that doggie Molly is returned to her rightful owner, two area animal rescue groups are holding fundraisers — oddly enough, both with sushi.

Tomorrow, if you eat at Sushi-Zen Restaurant in Arlington, mention Homeward Trails, and 20 percent of your check’s proceeds will help dogs and cats find permanent homes. Join their free Royalty Rewards program to donate an additional $5.00.

This Sunday afternoon is Bark & Bubbles, with sushi and bubbly drinks for the humans, ice cream, doggie treats and pet caricatures. The Washington Animal Rescue League will benefit from this event at WagTime Pet Spa & Boutique, which will offer same-day discounts to guests.

  1. Doesn’t WagTime have numerous complaints against it by dog owners and neighbors? My dog trainer said it was terrible and unsafe. I am surprised that WARL would partner with them.

  2. Good question, Meghan. Being a cat mom in a different part of town, I’m not familiar with them. A quick search shows they were a City Paper Best of DC pick for the past two years, and the WARL partnership sounds good – but I’m with you in wanting to know 100% if a place is safe before leaving a pet there.
