HRA Overwhelmed with Support from Public During Flooding

The Humane Rescue Alliance would like to thank our friends and supporters for their tremendous and generous outpouring of support over the weekend. Our New York Avenue facility suffered flooding in some of our dog kennels, forcing us to move the dogs from those particular dens to safe, dry places. Thanks to the outstanding coordination by our entire team, our animals were never in danger and did not suffer any ill-effects from the flooding. However, the water surge caused us to lose a...
