Maureen Sosa

Director of Pet Support

Maureen Sosa is the Humane Rescue Alliance's Director of Pet Support. She started her career in animal welfare back in 2003 as a volunteer at the Washington Animal Rescue League. After attending Maryland College of Art and Design and studying fine arts she realized helping animals was what she wanted to do as a career.

She and the Customer Care team work with pet owners in the community to help keep pet's in their homes. She works closely with the behavior and training team, medical team, and adoptions team to find ways we can support our community and their pets. Her team also works on reuniting lost pets with their families and leading our M.A.R.T. (Missing Animal Response Team) program. Maureen has a passion for keeping pet’s home with the families they know and love and is always working on developing new programs to provide resources to families needing them.

Maureen was born and raised in the DC area and now lives in Takoma Park with her two sons, two dogs, a bearded dragon, a dove, and a Koi pond. She enjoys sports with her kids and quality time with her many pets.
