Adoptable Pet of the Week: Narwhal

Meet Narwhal, the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week! This gorgeous girl is an extrovert who loves to meet new people and looking for a forever home.

Her friends at Animal Welfare League of Arlington, had this to say:

She is a unique and gorgeous girl who has an amazing personality to go along with her look. Narwhal is the extrovert in the group that loves to meet all the neighbors and spend her time hanging out with her people.

Narwhal came to us as a timid dog, but has opened up to be a sweet and playful dog! She is quite the extrovert and hasn’t met a person she doesn’t like. Her favorite thing is so to play tug, chase balls, or smell new things in the neighborhood. She will nap happily during most of the day so she’s ready to play in the evenings.

While she doesn’t bark at things outside the house, she does like to share her thoughts and opinions with the people she loves.

AWLA is currently holding an “Empty the Shelters” event as its kennel capacity has reached a “critical” level.

“Our kennels are very full and more pets are coming in every day. We desperately need adopters and fosters,” said AWLA spokeswoman Chelsea Jones. “Until the end of the day Sunday, AWLA is taking part in Empty the Shelters, an adoption event with Bissell Pet Foundation. Adult dogs and cats are just $25 and small animals are FREE.”

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
