Humane Rescue Alliance

UPDATE: The Humane Rescue Alliance's Saturday vaccine clinics in May and June 2018 will be canceled. Washington, DC residents are encouraged to instead participate in DC Health's Animal Health Fairs taking place at locations across the city. HRA will continue to offer our regularly scheduled weekday vaccine clinics in May and June, which are open to all. 

Vaccine Clinics

The Medical Center, located at 71 Oglethorpe St. NW, hosts vaccine clinics weekly. No appointments are required; however you must be in line 30 minutes prior to the end of the clinic for your pet to receive vaccines. Dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in a carrier. See below for current schedule.

The following schedule change will take place beginning in January 2018.

Vaccine Clinic Operations Relocate

Previously, the Washington Humane Society and more recently the Humane Rescue Alliance provided affordable spay and neuter services for companion animals at our National Capital Area Spay and Neuter Center. Located at 1001 L Street, SE, this high-quality, high-volume spay and neuter center hosted weekly low-cost vaccine clinics and  averaged 40 surgeries a day for pets of the public, our adoption center animals, community cats, and animals in the care of other animal rescue groups.

Our 10-year lease on the building that housed this vital program ended in February 2017 and the strategic decision was made to relocate L Street operations to a new expansion of the Medical Center at our Oglethorpe Street, NW, location.

Cutting Expenses, Not Services

We previously hosted three low-cost vaccine clinics every week at L Street, SE, and the demand was high, with lines of companion animal owners often extending around the corner. We are working full force on a transition plan that enables us to continue serving these valued clients—a plan that includes vaccine clinics in Southeast and transportation assistance for DC residents as needed.

We are proud to be saving more than $150,000 each year on rent at L Street. As we consolidate our staff, inventory, IT, and other operational details, the cost savings will continue to rise.
