MSE Foundation and the Capitals have donated nearly $600,000 to local animal shelters through the sale of Caps Canine Calendars since 2012.
Founded in 2015, Wolf Trap Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the primary mission to operate a life-saving animal rescue transport and adoption program. These transports operate weekly, where hundreds of homeless puppies and kittens are relocated from Mississippi to awaiting foster homes in Northern Virginia. Relocating these pets helps to prevent shelters from overcrowding and unnecessary euthanasia – providing the only hope for these pets to find a home. Once transported into WTAR’s foster program in Northern Virginia, rescued pets are provided all the necessary veterinary care and training they need until they find their perfect forever home through WTAR’s adoption program. Since 2015 Wolf Trap Animal Rescue has rescued and adopted nearly 12,000 homeless pets in need.
MSE Foundation is committed to making the Greater Washington region a better place for all by supporting game-changing solutions for the community. Learn more at MonumentalFoundation.org and follow MSE Foundation on Twitter and Instagram.
