PHOTOS: Dogs Go For Gold In Local 'Pawlympics'

ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA)-- Pet Dominion, a canine lodging resort, holds its final round of doggie daycare competition this Thursday, capping the past two weeks of "Pawlympics" medal events for the daycare dogs and their humans.

Pooches have been competing in swimming, diving, gymnastics, 200M dash and hurdles.

Last week's preliminary rounds determined the finalists and the last event of the Pawlympics, the hurdles, takes place over a specially designed course.

The winning dog will receive a Pawlympic Gold Medal. All other participants will receive a take-home trophy or ribbon.

Pet Dominion invites local dog owners to bring them to the competition, kicking off at 1 p.m. Thursday. No reservations are needed.

Kitten Foster Caregivers Urgently Needed!

Kitten Foster Caregivers Urgently Needed!

Love kittens? The Washington Humane Society (WHS) needs your help! You can help save lives by providing space and care for the more than 70 kittens in need during this busy summer season.

In the last week alone we have taken in over 75 kittens and 40 adult cats. As the open admission shelter in the District, we never turn away an animal who needs our help, but our space and resources are limited. We are calling on our caring community to provide an invaluable, life-saving service by simply opening your hearts and homes to kittens in need for a little while as we seek permanent homes for them.
