Animal Care and Control Facility

Animal Care and Control Facility  

The Animal Control Facility is operated by the Washington Humane Society under a contract with the District of Columbia.  The facility is open 24 hours/day for those needing assistance with animals, but has limited hours for those wishing to visit or adopt animals.  The Animal Control Facility primarily houses dogs, cats, and pocket pets, but never turns any animal away.  In the past exotic species such as monkeys, alligators, and farm animals have spent time at the District of Columbia’s Animal Control Facility!
