    This year...


    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 everyone (and every pet), everywhere 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 and safety of your homes and ANYONE, ANYWHERE can participate.

    RSVP today!

    During the month of October students can sign up for Fun Fur Fridays, a brand new virtual program for friends of animals in grades K-12.

    Each week a different animal or group of animals will be front and center on your computer screen. Meet cats and dogs temporarily residing in HRA’s fabulous foster homes—and animals living their best lives in their forever homes will drop by, too! Fun Fur Fridays is not just cats and dogs.  Other animals including bunnies, hamsters, and guinea pigs will also be featured. You never know who will stop by for a virtual meet and greet. Get all of your animal questions answered on Fun Fur Fridays at 4:00 p.m.!

    Space is limited. Students eager to close out the school week with a smile or a giggle won’t want to miss Fun Fur Fridays!
