maxOn November 9th, HT participated in Give to the Max Day – a 24 hour competition where nonprofits in the DC area worked to secure the most number of donors and the most donations. With hundreds of nonprofits competing,  many much larger and older than HT, we finished 2nd in the two major categories securing a total prize of $16,000! We cannot be more thrilled!

In addition to the $16,000 in prize money, HT supporters came out with gusto and donated a whopping $18,000+ bringing our total day’s earnings to more than $34,000 – all for our homeless animals.

We give a huge thank you to all of our many wonderful, loyal and generous supporters who helped make this day so successful. We could not do what we do without you. Many, many more animals will be rescued and given the chance at life they deserve thanks to you!


UrbanPaceHT gives a huge THANK YOU to our friends at Urban Pace!

HT is proud to call Lynn Hackney, President (and Founder) of Urban Pace one of our own! Lynn has been with HT since its beginning – volunteering, donating, driving, fostering and adopting. And while celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Urban Pace, she designated HT to receive donations from their wonderful silent auction totaling more than $3,000.

Urban Pace has been the undisputed leader in urban new homes sales since 2001 and has successfully sold over $500 Million in sales volume throughout every significant urban neighborhood in DC. Since 2005, Urban Pace has sold more homes over $750,000 than all other competitors combined and has been responsible for the sales and marketing of the most prestigious and most expensive projects to date in the urban marketplace. Check them out at:

We thank Lynn and Urban Pace and wish them many more years of success. We are lucky to have you as part of the HT family! Woof! Meow!
