About Humane Rescue Alliance – Oglethorpe St
Humane Rescue Alliance offers dog and cat adoptions to metro DC veterans through its partnership with Pets for Patriots, and will help them find their new best friends.
The organization brings together two animal welfare groups, Washington Humane Society and Washington Animal Rescue League, each of which served the capitol area for over a century prior to their merger in February, 2016.
Humane Rescue Alliance provides pet adoption services at its New York Avenue Center, Oglethorpe Adoption Center, and a network of foster homes throughout the area. In addition, the organization offers humane education programs, a pet food bank program, and affordable pet care to pet owners and adopters. To further support pets and people in the community, Humane Rescue Alliance maintains 24/7 animal control and humane law enforcement services, as well as round-the-clock help for victims of domestic violence who are concerned about the safety of their pets.
Humane Rescue Alliance welcomes monetary donations, as well as in-kind contributions that can be made through the shelter’s Amazon Wish List. For a more hands on experience, become a valued volunteer or pet foster.
