Flea and tick preventatives do just that, they prevent infestation or bites from fleas and/or ticks. These products are applied in an effort to prevent the bite/infestation from occurring, although they do have benefit after bites or infestation. Click here to read the entire article.

Community Partner

The employees at Gunn Mowery hosted a donation drive at their Lemoyne office to benefit the homeless animals of HSHA. HSHA's Executive Director, Amy Kaunas and Director of Marketing, Megan Strausbaugh recently stopped by their office with the adoptable pit bull mix, Peeps, to say Thank You and show our sincerest appreciation for their efforts. Peeps stole the show with his cute pit bull smile and by providing classic entertainment with his tricks for treats! Thanks Gunn Mowery for being such a huge supporter of HSHA. Your contributions make a difference.
