Presidential Pets: A Friend in the White House

First Lady with the Presidential PetsDates: February 1 – April 27, 2014

Animals have always been a major part of life at the White House. Pampered pets, working livestock, and strays have all lived at the White House over the years. Some were simply family pets, while others helped shape the President’s public image or played a role in international diplomacy. This exhibit features the likeness of many of the pets who have lived at the White House.
