ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals, in conjunction with the Washington Nationals, today announced that defenseman Tyson Strachan will host a Strachan Strays fundraiser at Nationals Park on Sunday, June 1, prior to the Nationals game against the Texas Rangers, which is slated to begin at 1:35 p.m.

Strachan Strays is a charitable organization created to raise awareness about the issues of pet homelessness and to raise finances to support local no-kill animal shelters. Funds raised by Strachan Strays will benefit Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, which adopts dogs and cats from high-kill shelters to homes in the Washington, D.C., region.

Tickets are available at and include a donation to Strachan Strays and Homeward Trails, as well as a pregame meet and greet with Strachan.

“Every year millions of companion animals are left on the streets or euthanized in kill shelters,” said Strachan. “Our goal through education and fundraising is to end pet homelessness and overpopulation. We strive to find every animal their perfect home, and to promote responsible pet ownership.”

Strachan Strays is passionate about promoting pet adoption from a network of responsible no-kill shelters throughout the United States. The organization’s goal is to raise awareness and educate individuals on how they can make a difference in the fight to end pet homelessness. For more information visit
