This blog post was written by our Field Marketing Manager, Kathleen Wojtowicz, to highlight our new program with Humane Rescue Alliance.

The Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA), located in Washington, DC, has been saving and protecting animals for more than 150 years. With a people-focused, community-based approach, they treat every animal as an individual and emphasize specialized care for both animals and their families. Throughout their long history, they have advocated for a world where all animals and their families can thrive.  Each year, they touch the lives of more than 100,000 animals. 

As the largest animal services provider in their region, HRA finds solutions to problems big and small, from providing direct care to an animal in crisis to tackling systemic barriers to affordable, pet-friendly housing. In recent years, this has also meant more rescue efforts to save animals from natural disasters. 

Chris Schindler, Vice President of Field Services at the Humane Rescue Alliance, has been rescuing animals for more than 20 years. He and his emergency rescue team have deployed to most of the extreme weather events of the last decade, including in 2017 when Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria consecutively hit areas across the southern United States. 

The emergency rescue team has saved hundreds of animals, personally reuniting many with their families after natural disasters. Moments like this are exactly what motivate Chris and his team to deploy at a moment’s notice when disasters strike. That's why it’s crucial that the team has the specialized gear necessary for these life-saving rescue missions.

To help cover these costs, CleanChoice Energy has teamed up with HRA to raise money for emergency rescue. As a company dedicated to mitigating climate change, CleanChoice Energy will purchase 100% wind + solar power supply for your home rather than polluting fossil fuels. When you enroll, $50 will be donated to save animals in the face of natural disasters.

Climate change is devastating families and communities today. Take action against climate change today and help us reach our fundraising goal by the end of the month. Together, we can save lives.
