We Are Searching For Alexandria Community Bloggers!

Dear Alexandria community,

We are looking for community contributors for our Alexandria website!  Community producers contribute blog posts and photos to our WUSA 9 "Where You Live" Alexandria site. 

What topics are appropriate?  Write or take photos of happenings in your community, fun happy hours or new restaurant openings, different events going on, festivals, or fairs.  Really, anything you care about in your neighborhood is what we are looking for. You can do pre-event promotional stories, or you can actually attend events and write reviews as well.  Anything that is an important issue or community news topic in Alexandria is welcomed----no story is too small!

Giving Thanks

WHS has a lot to be thankful for this year. We have found forever homes for thousands of pets, we have a dedicated staff of animal lovers, plus we have generous donors and wonderful volunteers and partners who support us year round. But what we are most thankful for are the animals. They are the life blood of this organization and now it’s our turn to give thanks to them for enriching our lives.

Please join us in giving thanks to these wonderful shelter animals. Here’s what you can do:
