Part of being a responsible pet owner is committing to care for your pets for the duration of their life. Sometimes pet owners experience challenging behaviors in their pets and may even consider giving their pet up to the HSHA as a result. Before turning to this option, consider contacting us for guidance and reviewing the information below to discover possible solutions to the problem. But, if you are forced to give up your pet, HSHA encourages you to make every effort to find it a new home with a family member, friend, co-worker, or other caring person. Please exhaust all possible options before coming to HSHA.
Consider these resources, tips, and tricks to prevent surrending your animal to the shelter:
In the event that you have exhaused all possible options, contact HSHA at (717) 564-3320 to make a surrender appointment. Acceptance of surrendered animals is dependant on space and cannot be guaranteed. Additionally, a surrender fee is required to help defray the cost of caring for the animal. Surrender fees are: $122 for dogs (non pit bull), $265.90 for pit bulls, and $135.70 for cats.
