WASHINGTON – WTOP Living is partnering with the Washington Animal Rescue League to feature a Pet of the Week available for adoption. Meet this week’s pet below.

Name: Avianca

Age: 10 weeks old

Breed: Labrador mix

Bio: Avianca arrived at the Washington Animal Rescue League from West Virginia with her littermates. Avianca was initially a bit shy around people but thanks to lots of interaction with staff, volunteers and shelter visitors, she’s gaining confidence every day and is ready for a home where she can continue to mature and be loved for the rest of her life.

For more information about Avianca, email or call 202-726-2556 ext. 503.
