“Max and I know this year and holiday season have been particularly challenging for many community members, and we hope covering the fees for these special animals will help even more people discover the benefits of the human-animal bond,” said Erica Scherzer, Humane Rescue Alliance board member.
“This is an extremely generous endeavor by Erica and Max,” said Stephanie Shain, executive vice president and chief operating officer at the Humane Rescue Alliance. “By allowing us to provide fee-waived adoptions, we hope to help these animals start 2021 off right – in a home with a family of their own.”
The fee-waived adoptions are offered through Dec. 31. Standard virtual adoption procedures apply for all adoptions. Animals currently available from HRA can be seen online at humanerescuealliance.org/adopt.
