The Humane Rescue Alliance was formed as the merger of two great animal organizations in DC- the Washington Humane Society, and the Washington Animal Rescue League. HRA provides full-service care for an animal from the moment it is brought into the shelter, throughout the adoption process. Even after the pet finds a forever home, owners can continue to come to HRA for help with veterinary care, assistance with behavioral problems, and vaccination or spay/neuter services. On top of this, HRA also provides an animal police force, fighting cruelty against animals in the DC area.
HRA takes in any animal; their shelters on New York Ave and Oglethorpe street have been homes for bunnies, guinea pigs, fish, reptiles, and even pigs! The shelter is always filled with adorable, adoptable pets waiting to find their forever homes.
On May 13th HRA’s Adoption Force One van will be parked outside of MINT, with cats and dogs all available to be adopted and taken home on-site! MINT will also be hosting a series of donation-based fitness classes from 1-4pm. These classes will be first-come-first-serve, and will require a minimum cash donation of $10. Check the MINT schedule for more details about what classes will be available. Just think, you could leave your house for a cycling class, and come home with a new best friend!
Our neighbors Pleasant Pops and Hudson and Crane are also getting in on the fun, and have agreed to donate a portion of their sales from the day to HRA, with every person who mentions the event at check out. Please stop by, grab yourself a treat, pet a puppy, and pop in for a fitness class, all in the name of saving animals!
MINT would like to send a special thank you to all our instructors and staff who volunteered their time to help support this event.
