Pittie Party & Parade

JOIN US TO CELEBREATE BREED EQUALITY!
October 19, 2019 | 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. | @ The Shelter

The Pittie Party celebrates the often misunderstood Pit Bull Breed. This breed makes up a large percentage of HSHA's adoptable dog population so, we invite all animal lovers (and their leashed canine pals of all breeds) each year to join us for a free, fun-filled day celebrating breed equality. Visitors can enjoy vendors for pets and owners, food and drink, photo booth, costume contest, 50% off adoptable pitties, kids activities, and retail specials!  

"HSHA works hard to advocate for the Pit Bull, as they truly make wonderful and loving companions," said Kristi Kleinfelter, HSHA's Adoption Center Team Leader.  "It's important to show that the breed's often incorrect reputation is primarily a result of human irresponsibility and to educate the public on humane pet ownership."


DON'T WAIT... RESERVE YOUR VENDOR BOOTH TODAY TO BE A PART OF THIS EDUCAITONAL EVENT. Click here to download the vendor form, complete it, and then return to Kristi Kleinfelter

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

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!
