Wish List

Petangp Store

The Humane Society of Harrisburg Area relies solely on donations of supplies and funding from the community to carry out our mission. Our wish list contains the items that we always need. While many of the items on our list appear very practical (i.e. copy paper, brooms, paper towels), they are nonetheless essential items to ensure the best care for our animals. Additionally, purchase an item from the wish list at the Petango Store (link above), and HSHA will receive a 10% cash back donation!
