Washington Humane Society Bark Ball
Given the vagaries of DC, Harry Truman recommended canine companionship and for the past 24 years that advice has been followed as the Washington Humane Society’s Bark Bark Ball draws ever larger crowds. At the Washington Hilton on June 4, assured four-footers led their black tie bedecked humans into an evening celebrating doggie splendor with silent and live auctions, dinner, program and dancing. The event supports adoption, humane law enforcement, foster care and a regional spay/neuter center among other services provided. The WHS is the only Congressionally-chartered animal welfare agency in the United States and the only open-access shelter in the Nation’s Capital.
