During the Spring and Summer months HSHA receives a large numbers of kittens and nursing moms. Foster homes are best suited to care for these small felines to prevent illness and provide socialization. The kittens are returned at 8-10 weeks old for adoption. We currently have kittens at the shelter in need of a foster home! We provide all fosters with all the necessary supplies, veterinary care, and 24 hour support needed, we just ask that you provide the love! If you are interested in learning more about this LIFE SAVING program please email Aspasia Yeager at or call 717-564-3320 ext 108.

For more infromation on these animals and to apply to be a foster parent, contact Aspasia Yeager at (717) 564-3320 x108 or
