This Father’s Day Consider a Park Authority Gift Card

This Father’s Day Consider a Park Authority Gift Card

From Fairfax County Park Authority:

Why is it that buying the perfect gift for Father’s Day is such a struggle? Could it be that we want to ensure that what we give is really what Dad wants? That’s why Park Authority Gift cards are such a great idea. Gift cards are easy to buy and can be used for a wide variety of activities such as classes, or golf, or an adventurous trip.

The Postman and The Pit Bull

The Postman and The Pit Bull

“She is a blessing and has changed my life for the better. Born on my mother’s birthday; I think it was meant to be”. – Reginald Winston

It’s not every day that you hear of a heartwarming story between a postman and a dog, but this one is sure to bring tears to your eyes, especially if you are fortunate enough to meet this destined pair. Piper, a short but sturdy black and white pit bull type dog came to our New York Avenue Shelter in January of this year after being found by a responsive DC resident. She spent some time in the shelter looking for her new family, overlooked as many black and white pit bulls are in shelters. But that would change, after I quickly fell in love with her charm and she was transferred into our foster care program.
