Each February, HSHA conducts our Show Some Love With A Glove GLOVE DRIVE. Wearing and properly changing gloves dramatically reduces the spread of life-threatening diseases in a shelter environment. We use roughly 300,000 latex, vinyl, or nitrile gloves to clean, medicate, and care for the thousands of homeless animals that come to our shelter from Dauphin, Cumberland, Perry, and northern York Counties every year.
Our goal this year is to reach 250 cases of gloves
There are three (3) ways you can show your love for homeless pets right here in our area by supporting the 2018 HSHA GLOVE DRIVE:
**Please note: As of January 18, 2017 the FDA is banning the use of powdered surgical and exam gloves. Henry Schein states that: Healthcare providers and facilities are required to adhere to federal and state regulations, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards. Therefore, HSHA will not be able to accept any powdered surgical or exam gloves.**
Questions can be addressed to Megan Strausbaugh email@example.com or 564-3320, ext. 125.
