Join hundreds of HSHA supporters and their dogs on May 3rd for the 17th Annual 5K Run/Walk for the Animals! This year's event will be held at Wildwood Park and Olewine Nature Center located next to HACC's Harrisburg Campus. Registration begins at 8:00am. Event kicks off at 10:00am. Refreshments will be provided before and after.

There is an entry fee of $40 for this event.  To get a t-shirt, you must raise $75.  The entry fee can be your own donation, or a donation made to you, and it DOES count towards the t-shirt. Medals and Applebee's gift certificates will be given to top runners in each category. A $100 Applebee's gift certificate will be given to the top fund raiser.

There will be a low-cost vaccination and microchip clinic at the event from 9-11am.

We will also be doing a supply drive.   Our Wish List has all of the items we need, including non-clumping litter, paper towels & bleach.

For more information, please contact Susan Eaton at or 717-564-3320 x125.

How Can I Help Homeless Animals in My Community Today?

We are currently in need of peanut buttersensitive stomach dry cat food, non-clumping kitty litter, sturdy plastic bottles (NOT soda) and cat toys.  If you'd like to help out, please drop some off at the shelter!

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.
