Humane Rescue Alliance

Animals. People. Community.

The Washington Humane Society and the Washington Animal Rescue League have each served the animals and people of the District of Columbia and the National Capital region for more than a century. These two iconic forces for animal protection came together to form an even more powerful organization, the Humane Rescue Alliance.
Together, we’re combining our proficiency and knowledge in all aspects of animal care, from providing quality, affordable medical services to creating families with each adoption. Most importantly, we tenaciously protect and advocate for the animals in our community, and support and celebrate people’s love and compassion for them.
