It's the


Bark Ball Reimagined benefiting the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) will be held on Thursday, October 29, 2020. We hope you will join us in supporting the work HRA does in our community and beyond. This year, the event will be virtual which means anyone, anywhere can participate!

Since 1987, the Bark Ball has established itself in the nation’s capital as the black-tie event for Washington, DC’s movers and shakers to attend with their canine companions. However, this year many things have changed, including the way we’re bringing you the annual Bark Ball. As with most events this year, we have had to rethink how we're going to bring the Bark Ball to you and are pleased to be presenting a completely virtual event -- Bark Ball REIMAGINED. You and your guests -- both two-legged and four-legged -- will be able to enjoy the program from the comfort of your homes.

Your support of Bark Ball Reimagined will help HRA continue to provide the community with critical life-saving programs and services. It has been your support that has kept our doors open during the pandemic and we are ever so grateful for your continued support through Bark Ball Reimagined.
