Humane Rescue Alliance

In 2016, the Washington Humane Society and the Washington Animal Rescue League merged to create the largest humane society in the United States: The Humane Rescue Alliance. The merger empowered the two successful shelter organizations to save money on administrative costs, which empowered them to do even more good for pets in the Washington DC area.
