Group Volunteers

The Humane Rescue Alliance has recently launched our Partners for Pets program. This program offers companies, organizations, and groups the opportunity to support HRA’s work, give back to their community, and receive great volunteer and visibility benefits.

To learn about partnership levels and membership benefits of the Partners for Pets program click here and email Kim Keller at [email protected]

The cornerstone of the Partners for Pets program is group volunteer activities. HRA is glad to host your group for a meaningful volunteer experience at our Oglethorpe Street Adoption Center. We welcome you to join the community that enables us to serve tens of thousands of animals a year, without ever turning a DC animal away.

Make a meaningful difference to the animals of DC as a team!

We host two-hour group volunteer events on Wednesdays 10 am - 12 pm or Saturdays 10 am - 12 pm at our Oglethorpe Street Adoption Center.

Please note, groups are usually booked 1- 2 months in advance on a first come, first serve basis.

We ask that all volunteers be at least 15 years of age and that each group join the Partners for Pets program. If your group is unable to meet the partnership or age requirements, we welcome you to support HRA through one of our many great community events or youth volunteer options!

Benefits for businesses organizing a group volunteer activity:

A 2013 Network for Good report highlights that enabling employees to give back to the community through volunteer activities is a powerful form of motivation and employee engagement. More than 75% of employees want to be involved in their company’s giving and volunteering programs. Employee engagement leads to increased happiness at work, greater productivity, and less turnover which can help a company’s bottom line. HRA wants to help employers connect with their workforces by supporting charitable pursuits important to their employees.

How does workplace volunteering translate into better workplace engagement?

  • Employee development
  • Encouraging teamwork
  • Improved communication
  • Improved employee retention
  • Building brand awareness
