About the Humane Rescue Alliance

The Humane Rescue Alliance has protected and cared for the animals of the nation’s capital for 150 years and serves thousands of animals annually. Its broad range of programs offered includes: direct rescue and care of animals in need, cruelty investigations and local animal control services, robust regional community support programs that help pets stay with their families, and a premier transport program that invests in partner communities to solve pet overpopulation sustainably and nationwide. The organization advocates for and enables the safety and welfare of all animals, bringing people and animals together, and working within communities to support these relationships. HRA is based in Washington, DC and through a merger with St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in Madison, New Jersey, created the first regional, community-based, multi-state animal welfare organization in the nation.
