How to Adopt and Package Pricing

If you’re looking for a wonderful life-long companion, then you’ve come to the right place! HSHA has hundreds of animals of every shape and size to choose from. During their stay, our guests are treated by HSHA staff and volunteers to many enriching activities, such as walks, outings, behavior training and socialization. Our staff and volunteers are very knowledgeable about our animals and can help direct you to appropriate matches. Each animal has something unique to offer, and adopters are sure to find the right animal for their home at HSHA.


Before You Adopt

  • Make sure everyone in your family understands the commitment of owning a pet.
  • If you rent, check with your landlord to ensure pets are allowed where you live.
  • To expedite the adoption process, please bring proof of current vaccinations for any pets you already own with you to the shelter. 
  • There are two options for bringing current pets up-to-date on vaccinations if they are not vaccinated: 1) schedule an appointment with your personal veterinarian to have your animal(s) vaccinated; or 2) attend one of HSHA's scheduled vaccine clinics.
  • Regardless of which method you use to bring your current pet(s) up to date on vaccinations, there will be a five day waiting period after your pet(s) vaccination before you can adopt a new pet.
  • Everyone in your family will also need to meet the new pet prior to finalizing the adoption.
  • For out-of-state adoptions, a $50 deposit is required and is refundable upon completion of adoption. 

Applying

All potential adopters must complete an adoption application. Applications are available at the shelter’s front desk or by downloading here:

Pet of the Week

Cinni Suede

 My Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/cinni-suede-46342083/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Who's a beautiful girl? It's me, Miss Cinne Suede! With my cinnamon-suede coat, I'm a sleek and soft fashion starlet who is about to own the runway. I'm a big girl (54 pounds) who is not even a year old yet. I was born in March, so you know by the time I'm full grown, I'm going to be a solid sister -- all muscle and bright eyes! I have an amazing fawn/lilac coat, and my eyes look green or blue or golden, depending on the light. My toes are dipped in white, and I have a white splash on my chest. I love tennis balls and treats, but I can get jumpy and mouthy very quickly, because I'm young and untrained. That means no kids under 12, please! And I need to be your only pet -- no cats or dogs or critters for me, because I do not respect their space and their needs. That's OK though, because once you meet me, I'll be the only pet you want. Right now I have sore feet that I'm being treated for, and the staff will fill you in on that medical need. And one last thing -- I need to go to a home that has experience with dogs.

 Ghost

My Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/rabbit/ghost-46469396/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Witches, vampires, monsters, and other scary icons are a big part of Halloween--especially ghosts! How would you like to meet a cute, soft, furry ghost who hops? Well, let me introduce myself. I'm Ghost, a very cute bunny with long floppy ears and fluffy brown and white spotted fur. I'm a friendly ghost (like Casper) who likes to be petted and brushed. Not all ghosts are out for revenge or scares! I enjoy rearranging the furniture in my cage because it's hard for me to be confined, so a home where I can run and play outside of my cage would be ideal. I love to play with boxes, hiding inside or flipping them in the air. I'm a little nervous about being picked up, but if you go slowly and gently, I'll come around and let you transport me short distances. Sometimes I get perturbed when people move my stuff around, so it will be best to clean my cage without me in it! If you would like to meet a ghost who will leave you with a warm heart rather than cold chills, come in soon to meet me, Ghost the bunny! You won't be spooked by this furry critter with long floppy ears, although I might "go bump in the night" once in a while. If you adopt me you can tell everyone that you have a "haunted" house and invite them to meet your mini-Ghost!  ***I now live at Zoomania, the cool pet store in the Colonial Park Mall.
