Historic News from Lisa LaFontaine, President and CEO, Humane Rescue Alliance to Supporters














Dear Friends,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write to you today.

Six months ago, the Washington Humane Society and the Washington Animal Rescue League began our historic journey together, merging into one organization to become the driving force in animal welfare, providing care and protection for more than 60,000 animals each year. Our two 100-year-old organizations began combined operations in February and have continued a very smooth operational transition since that time.

Monday, in an historic announcement, the Washington Humane Society and the Washington Animal Rescue League combined organization became the Humane Rescue Alliance.



The name Humane Rescue Alliance is the culmination of a six month process of thoughtful and diligent work to discover and determine our brand and to define our identity as an organization.

We believe the name Humane Rescue Alliance honors the two predecessor organizations by using the strongest word from each legacy name and represents the strength of the new organization as a bridge from our past to the future. 

With the Humane Rescue Alliance serving the animals and people of the nation’s capital, we now become a model for other animal welfare organizations and municipalities around the country. With the Humane Rescue Alliance serving the animals of the national capital region, Washington, DC, becomes the only major urban area in the country that has all of its animal protection programs and services - from medical services and adoptions to animal control and humane law enforcement - unified in one organization.

As a supporter of our organization, I want you to know that we will continue to tenaciously protect and advocate for the animals in our community and support and celebrate people’s love and compassion for them. On behalf of our Board, staff and volunteers, I thank you for your support of our mission. We look forward to an exciting future, as we will constantly evolve - striving to excel at bringing new ideas forward that improve the lives of the animals and communities we work with.
Sincerely,






Lisa LaFontaine
President and CEO
Humane Rescue Alliance
