The health and well-being of the animals in our care, our staff, and the community we serve are our top priority. The Humane Rescue Alliance continues to work with health officials and our community stakeholders to monitor, plan, and respond appropriately. Please continue to check this website for updates and information related to COVID-19 and changes to programs and services. For animal related emergencies 24/7 call 202-723-5730.
We have postponed or canceled the following until further notice:
Our traditional adoption center is temporarily closed, but we are very much open for adoptions. We are currently offering virtual adoption services. We have wonderful animals who still need homes and it’s imperative we continue to find adoptive families for the animals in our care. Essential staff will still be caring for animals not in foster homes, as well as providing essential assistance to the community impacted by the pandemic. Learn more about our virtual adoption process at humanerescuealliance.org/adopt.
We are offering limited vaccine services by appointment only at our 71 Oglethorpe St. NW location. Please call 202-723-5730, ext. 205 or email [email protected] to be added to our waiting list.
Please call 202-723-5730 to schedule an appointment to surrender your pet at HRA’s Oglethorpe St. NW facility. Visit humanerescuealliance.org/surrender-your-pet to learn more about alternatives to surrendering your pet, as well as the surrender process.
Our free pet food and supply distributions continue as it did throughout the pandemic with expanded dates and locations. For more information visit humanerescuealliance.org/pet-pantry.
We are currently offering virtual training classes and private sessions as well as in-person classes. Learn more at humanerescuealliance.org/training.
