Therapeutic Benefits of Pets | Contributed by: Emma Naylor
Pets are a great addition to any household, and they bring tangible benefits to their owner, too – not only are they loyal and loving, but they encourage exercise, help develop social skills, and bring families together. The benefits of adopting a pet go beyond how adorable and playful they are; in fact, one of their biggest advantages often goes unnoticed. Pets, especially cats and dogs, have therapeutic benefits that reinforce just how special they are both to society and their individual owners. Read the entire article for more information.
THANK YOU McNEES WALLACE & NURICK LLC
Special thanks to the staff at McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC. The company’s 3rd Quarter Charitable Project was the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area's (HSHA). A group of 15 staff members came to the shelter on July 9th to help prepare for the Annual Christmas in July event. The staff cleaned, mowed, pulled weeds, completed administrative tasks, washed dishes, and organized donations. In addition, they hosted a special jeans day at their office and raised $485.00. So, thanks again to all the staff at McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC for their unconditional support of HSHA.
We are currently in need of paper towels, non-clumping kitty litter, non-scented clorox bleach, sturdy dog toys, dry kitten chow food and cat toys. If you'd like to help out, please drop some off at the shelter!
We have several dogs and cats that are looking for a foster home. If you think you may be able to help, please visit our Fosters Needed page.
