At the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area we could not build a better community for pets and people without the support of donors, volunteers, staff, and many other community members. Everyone works together to reach HSHA’s mission of compassion, protection, education and collaboration in our community. Please join us at our 6th Annual Community Day Open House on Wednesday June 5th from 5pm to 7pm. Enjoy free food, drinks and tours of the shelter. Be sure to check out our newly named retail store area “Furget-Me-Not” for some Community Day specials!
We look forward to seeing you there!
Do you have room in your home for a temporary house guest? Every year, HSHA takes in hundreds of kittens too young to be adopted or pregnant moms who need a safe place to give birth. We also take in animals who are sick or injured and need a place to recuperate. Sometimes, we simply run out of space for housing and need the support of our community. This year, give back by becoming a foster family for a pet in need. For more information, please click HERE, or stop out for our Foster Program informational meeting on June 4th.
Right now, kittens are being born everywhere. It is a very exciting time to view all of the little furballs, but it actually places a heavy burden on shelters. If you find kittens, it's important to know what steps to take.

CommunityAid's motto? Neighbors helping neighbors. And they mean it! This week they are giving out $355,000 in grants to community partners and we are fortunate enough to be one. The $25,000 will go a long way at the shelter and it really is neighbors helping neighbors: the items people donate or buy at CommunityAid really helps! HSHA has a donation bin in our top parking lot, and all items dropped off here directly beneft the shelter! So the next time you are cleaning out your closets, drop off your gently used items here.

Immediate Foster Care Needed! Quinn needs your help! Her current fosters are moving and can no longer care for her. She needs a new foster home so that she can continue to live in a low-stress environment that we can't provide here at the shelter.
