Capitol Hill Hosts Adoptable Pets From Animal Welfare League Of Alexandria

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) - They're not campaigning for votes, though they may shake some hands and pose for pictures. And they're completely non-partisan in their politics. They're the dogs, cats, puppies and kittens who'll be visiting Capitol Hill on Tuesday July 24, in celebration of the annual ASPCA's Paws For Celebration.

This event is hosted by the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, and shelters and animal rescue groups from the DC area, including the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, will be attending with four-legged furry adoptable candidates.

For hard-working Congressional staffers, it's a chance to take a welcome break from their busy election-year duties and enjoy the  stress-relieving opportunity to stroke a soft coat or hold a sweet companion animal on their laps.

If you can talk the talk, you can walk the walk – for the animals
