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 over a century. These two great 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're dedicated to protecting animals and to placing and keeping them with caring families. We deliver on that promise through our broad range of vital services.
A cornerstone of our work is to match people with companion animals of all kinds—from cats and dogs to fish and rabbits.
