These shelters are not only rescuing homeless pooches and finding them new homes, they're also providing them with proper medical care, spaying and neutering them, and educating the public on how to care for pets correctly.
One of the most well-established shelters, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, has been active since 1944. Their mission is to create a world where all animals can find permanent, compassionate homes. They provide shelter, adoption programs, medical care, and love to all animals that come through their doors.
Other popular shelters, like the Lucky Dog Animal Rescue and Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, are non-profit organizations that are dedicated to rescuing pooches on the streets of Arlington and from high-kill shelters. Lucky Dog Animal Rescue saves about 100-150 animals per month and has rescued over 6,800 pets since its inception in 2014. Homeward Trails, started about fifteen years ago and has saved about 21,000 animals in that time!
You and your pooch can enjoy outdoor seating while dining on delicious pub food and sampling their craft beers. While you and your pup can't eat inside, the brewpub is notoriously pet friendly and may even throw Fido a special puppy treat! Other famous options, like Cassatts Cafe, Rhodeside Grill, and The Liberty Tavern, are all dog-friendly establishments as well!
