The Humane Rescue Alliance in D.C. is waving its adoption fee for large dogs through Sunday, May 9.
In a Facebook post, HRA said it had over 50 large dogs — dogs over 40 pounds in weight — up for adoption as of Monday afternoon. In an effort to find them new homes after a recent decrease in adoption rates compared to last year’s surge, the organization waived the usual $150 to $250 adoption fee through this Sunday.
Because of the pandemic, HRA’s traditional adoption centers are still closed for in-person visits. Instead, would-be adopters can select an animal from the comfort of their own home with a virtual adoption process including a digital meet-and-greet and counseling session.
HRA has five campuses across D.C. and New Jersey, and is the largest animal services provider in the D.C. region.
