MSE and 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) non-profit organization with the primary mission of operating a rescue, transportation, and adoption program for life-saving animals. These transportations operate weekly, ferrying hundreds of homeless puppies and kittens from Mississippi to adoptive homes in Northern Virginia. Relocating these pets helps prevent shelter overcrowding and unnecessary euthanasia—providing these pets’ only hope for finding a home. Once transferred to WTAR’s foster program in Northern Virginia, rescued pets are provided with 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.
The MSE Foundation is committed to making the greater Washington area a better place for everyone by supporting game-changing solutions for the community. Learn more at MonumentalFoundation.org and follow the MSE Foundation on Twitter and Instagram.
