Barley, a fan of the Puppy Bowl, found his way to Chop Suey with his humans for a few beers and some socializing a few Sundays back. Barley is a 6-year-old Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix who was picked up in Las Vegas before making his way to the Pacific Northwest. He is loved for his super chill attitude and adorable underbite.
Motley Zoo, part of the Chop’s Puppy Bowl Sunday party, is a foster-based organization that exists to support overflowing shelters or animals with behavioral issues, however they don’t take strays off streets. Each animal lives with families and each animal has profile online to help with matching up humans to pets. There is an application process so there is no same day adoption. Motley Zoo is based out of Redmond and also runs dog daycare and training center (Rockstar Training) to help supplement costs of running a foster organization. They currently have about 30 animals, but at one point had over 120. They have 115 volunteers and around 55 are signed up to foster dogs and cats. If you’re interested in being a pet owner, you can find more information at motleyzoo.org.
We ask photographer Alex Garland to follow marchers in the rain and do crazy things like trying to make yet another picture of yet another huge apartment building look interesting. We thought we’d ask him to do something a little more fun. Capitol Hill Pets is a semi-regular look at our furry, fuzzy, feathered, and finned friends found out and about on Capitol Hill.
