The 22nd Annual 5K Run/Walk for the Animals will be hosted on May 4, 2019 at Wildwood Park in Harrisburg. Each years hundreds of HSHA supporters join us for a day filled with fun, entertainment and adventure including 30+ vendors providing goods and services for humans and their pets, along with food trucks providing all kinds of treats to keep the good times rolling!

Our next low-cost vaccine clinic is on Saturday, April 6. It will be hosted in the shelter's Intake Center from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. Please join us to keep your pet healthy and happy! As a reminder, these events are rain or shine and based on a first come, first served basis. But, as long as you are in line before 11:00 a.m. you and your pet will be seen by our veterinarian.

Get Involved...VOLUNTEER

Volunteers are a vital part of the HSHA team. Without them, we would not be able to perform many of the essential functions at our shelter. HSHA is always looking for dedicated and committed volunteers to assist with the shelter animals and some of the everyday responsibilities of shelter life. Whether you are interested in walking dogs, helping at events, or socializing cats, there is a place for you at HSHA. The animals are waiting for you ... get started today!

A sincere thanks to a wonderful group of volunteers from UPMC Pinnacle who made a significant contribution to the shelter. After identifying several projects, teams were formed and the results were very impressive and greatly appreciated. The photos speak for themselves!
