Washington, DC - Humane Rescue Alliance Appeals to Public to Adopt Animals Currently in DC to Make Room for Arriving Animals from Hurricane Harvey

Washington, DC – With animals being relocated this week to Washington, DC from Texas due to Hurricane Harvey, the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) is appealing to animal lovers throughout the region who may be considering adopting a new pet to visit adoptions centers today.  Dogs and cats adopted this week will clear room for arriving animals from Texas.  All pets available for adoption at HRA have been spayed/neutered and microchipped.

HRA is joining other shelters around the country who have volunteered to help clear shelter space in Texas for the animals who have become separated from their owners or were homeless strays prior to the storm coming ashore.  HRA expects to receive dogs and cats from Texas this week, although an exact time of arrival is yet to be determined. 

“The Humane Rescue Alliance is proud to assist our fellow shelters in Texas as that region deals with the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey,” said Stephanie Shain, Chief Operating Officer for HRA.  “The shelters in Texas are facing large numbers of incoming animals made homeless by this storm and need to move them to safety.  HRA stands ready to take in animals, regardless of breed, with open arms and we look forward to finding forever homes for them in our nation’s capital.”

To adopt current HRA animals, visit organization has two Adoption Centers:

71 Oglethorpe St., NW                       1201 New York Ave., NE      
Washington, DC 20011                       Washington, DC  20002
