Christmas In July

Christmas will come early this year at the HSHA annual Christmas in July adoptathon.

The event will be held on July 27th from 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. and will feature $10 cat adoptions, $20 dog adoptions, cookout, bake sale, affordable pet products, and more.

Adoption fees include spay/neuter surgery, microchip, vaccinations, and flea treatment.  Despite lowered adoption fees, the adoption process and requirements will remain the same. 

Christmas in July is held in an effort to encourage the community to visit HSHA and to ease typical summer overcrowding in the shelter.  Each summer, hundreds of homeless pets, especially cats and kittens, find their way to HSHA.

This event is a prime opportunity to give a deserving homeless pet a loving new home and a second chance.

Pet of the Week

Alarica

PetFinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/alarica-46400460/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

I'm Alarica, and my name is a play on the vampire hunter from The Vampire Diaries, Dr. Alaric Saltzman! All my fans out there get it, and I have a perfect name for the Halloween season. I'm a young adult female pit bull terrier mix who arrived here in October as a stray. I weigh about 55 pounds and I like to jump, so no kids under 10 for me. Older kids and adults in my home will need to know that I prefer to be left alone while eating, and when I play, I get nippy and mouthy. I don't yet realize that most people don't like that style of play. Obedience training will help me learn to mind my manners. I cannot live with cats, and when I'm around other dogs, I'm bossy and forceful with my corrections. I might do best as your only pet -- even better if you are an experienced pet owner!

 

Bubble Yum

My Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/bubble-yum-46436535/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

What was the first SOFT bubble gum ever made? Bubble Yum! Who is the coolest, friendliest, most handsome cat at the shelter? Same answer--Bubble Yum! Hi Folks! B.Y. here, and if you want to add a POP of fun to your days, consider taking me home! I'm a very outgoing, vocal, and loving cat who never fails to brighten the days of the staff and volunteers here. I love to play, especially with wand toys, and I have an impressive full twist when I jump in the air(see video). Just like bubble gum, I'll bring out the kid in you all over again! I'm still young and energetic, but I have a calm side, too. I'll sit on your lap to be petted and scratched, purring loudly to show my appreciation. I stick to you like glue--I mean gum! I would love the chance to work a little magic into your heart...abra ca-bubble! When you meet me you will see I am a charmer, so won't you stop by soon to visit this dapper gray and white guy? Please don't burst my bubble! Chew on this for a while, then hurry over to meet the cat who is a dubble bubble of fun and love!
