  • Roux

    Roux joined the Washington Animal Hospital staff in August of 2012 when we found him in our parking lot.  We briefly tried to find him a home but quickly realized that this is where he belonged!  Roux can be found lounging on the computer in the waiting room, hunting in the backyard or sleeping in any one of the cardboard boxes that he has claimed as his own.
