On July 18, the Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL) took over the Cabinet Room at the Old Ebbitt Grill for a champagne brunch to raise funds for the league’s new Disaster Rescue Fund, which will be used exclusively to transport and care for large-scale dog and cat interventions. In cooperation with the Humane Society International, the League recently rescued dogs when the only shelter in Kuwait burned to the ground. WARL’s doors at its state-of-the art facility are never shut to local animals and CEO Gary Weitzman echoed the mission that “no adoptable dog will go without a home or be euthanized.” Chief Development Officer Rob Blizard mentioned upcoming programs, such as a late September reception to launch a $25,000 challenge grant from Friendship Animal Hospital. — Mary Bird
