Pet of the Week: 2022 pets

Pet of the Week is a weekly feature that highlights a pet available for adoption from D.C.’s Humane Rescue Alliance.

Take a look back at the pets of 2021.

Meet Domino! He’s ready to bring constant joy and lots of energy to your life. Domino is a sweet, affectionate nine-month-old puppy that enjoys the company of people and is always up for play time with another active pup.

Domino is a smart dog and is doing well with leash training. Domino would do best in an adults-only home where he can continue to work on training and basic manners. And of course, get lots of cuddles and love. Make a date to meet this darling guy soon.
