“Urgent plea for adopters, bedding from Humane Rescue Alliance”

From an email:

“The Humane Rescue Alliance is pleading for adopters and waiving adoption fees for select available animals at both of its adoption centers on Tuesday, Oct. 29 and Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Due to critical maintenance required at HRA’s New York Avenue facility, we must evacuate 160 animals from the building by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 30, and we need the public’s help. View all available animals at and downloadable photos here. Those interested in adopting an animal should visit one of HRA’s two adoption centers:

71 Oglethorpe St. NW | Hours: 12 – 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday
1201 New York Ave. NE | Hours: 12 – 7 p.m. on Tuesday and 12 – 5 p.m. on Wednesday

“We are in critical need of adoptive homes,” said Claudia Roll, vice president of operations at the Humane Rescue Alliance. “We have so many wonderful animals in our adoption centers who are waiting to meet their new families, and we want to send as many of them home as possible.”

HRA is also in urgent need of bedding donations, including clean blankets, sheets, towels, and comforters. Donations can be dropped off at either location or shipped to us via our Amazon Wish List.

Fee-waived promotions and pleas for adopters only succeed in finding animals homes if we can get the word out to our community, so I appreciate you considering sharing this news!”
