Washington Humane Society needs you to help save more lives than ever!

WHS is one of 49 shelters nationwide taking part in a friendly competition focused on increasing adoptions. As part of the “Save More Lives: ASPCA $100K Challenge”, the shelter who adopts the most animals during the months of August, September and October this year over their adoption numbers from those months last year, will win the grand prize of $100,000. Winning the grand prize would be amazing; however, the most important outcome of the Challenge is finding more homes for more of DC’s animals than ever before.

Eat Your Heart Out, America

Overeating is one of the worst forms of stress on your heart.  When you overeat, you tax every system of your body and increase the burden on your cardiovascular system.  But most important, when the stomach distends from excessive food volume it compresses the aorta and the arteries around the upper abdomen and pushes up against the diaphragm.  This restricts both lung and heart movement, potentially leading to serious heart disease.  Be good-hearted and eat moderately.  Take some breaths between bites.  Eat a little slower and enjoy the moment.
