Art and culture in the District of Columbia are often thought to be exclusively west of the Anacostia River. Certainly, the vast majority of D.C.'s cultural attractions and events are located on the northwest side of the Sousa Bridge. But THEARC Theater has opened a door for the arts in the city's less heralded wards.

If you’ve ever visited one of our shelters, you know that there are far more cats available for adoption that there are dogs. This is not a problem found just in DC, nationally, cats out number any other animal entering shelters by at least 2 to 1!

As summer approaches more and more cats will enter our shelters looking for new homes and we will be doing everything we can to provide people with the opportunities to meet the perfect cat for their life. One of our favorite ways to introduce people and cats is through our “Meow Mixers”. These one of a kind events bring people together for an evening of fun and education about adopting cats, bringing cats into your life, introducing a new cat to a home where cats already live and so on.
