Regional Lifesaving Work Leads to Overabundance of Cats and Dogs at the Humane Rescue Alliance

The Humane Rescue Alliance announced today that the organization’s two adoption centers and foster homes have an overabundance of dogs and cats of all ages available for adoption. Due to urgent assistance needed by another shelter and a recent humane law enforcement seizure, both adoption centers are at capacity. In an effort to encourage those who have been thinking about pet adoption to visit HRA adoption centers this weekend, the organization will waive adoption fees Saturday and Sunday only, June 30 and July 1. 

“We are in critical need of adoptive homes so we can continue to provide refuge to the dozens of animals in need who come through our doors each and every day,” said Becca Stern, HRA’s director of adoptions. We have more than 240 animals waiting in our adoption centers and foster homes, ready to go home with their new families, and we encourage people to come and meet them. They get a new home, and the next animal through the door gets their well-deserved chance at adoption too.”

Those interested in adopting this weekend should visit one of HRA’s two adoption centers: 71 Oglethorpe Street, NW and 1201 New York Avenue, NE or inquire about an animal in foster care. All adoptions from HRA include spay/neuter, age-appropriate vaccinations, microchip, heartworm test (dogs 6 months and older), and FIV/FeLV test (cats 6 months and older).
