Between Nov 1st to Nov. 30th, every time a new Facebook post gets “LIKED” on the Animal Hospital of Dauphin County's Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/ahdcvets), they will donate 1/6th of a bowl of pet food to The Humane Society of Harrisburg Area! By “LIKING” these stories every day and encouraging your friends to do the same, we can donate an enormous amount of food to pets in need! The more virtual “LIKES”…the more REAL food! There’s no cost involved, just 15 seconds of your time per day. We will pay for up to 1000 1/6 bowls of food in the month of Nov. so check back to learn more about The Humane Society of Harrisburg and the amazing things that they do in our community. Food can also be dropped off at the hospital and at the Humane Society, or at any Karns grocery store donation bins.
We are featuring Volunteering as this months program. Being a volunteer is a rewarding experience that benefits both you and the animals at the shelter. Volunteers are a vital part of the HSHA team and without them, we would not be able to perform many of the essential functions at our shelter.
This month's featured article is all about the benefits of being a volunteer. Check it out!
