Attention Supporters, HSHA has closed early this evening, November 15, due to the winter weather advisory. We plan to reopen tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. in accordance with our standard schedule. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we wait out the snow storm.


On January 24th, I adopted Vixie, an adult cat who had been at the shelter for about 1.5 years (nearly her whole life!). I renamed her Emma, which suits her sweet personality. She found a happy home in Hershey where she has finally been coaxed out of the bedroom closet and discovered a very fuzzy blanket on the bed. Emma is very shy, and only socializes with me. I'm very happy that we found each other and believe that I've found a lifelong friend! Thanks to everyone at the Humane Society in Harrisburg :)

How Can I Help Homeless Animals in My Community Today?

Currently our greatest need is canned food for both dogs and cats! Our cats prefer pate but the pups aren't picky! In addition, we could use some Clorox Wipes to help maintain a safe, clean, and healthy environment for all the sheter's residents.

Check out HSHA's Amazon Wish List for more specific needs.

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.
