You are cordially invited to attend the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area's Annual Fur Ball Gala and Auction on November 17th at the Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey Hotel. Cocktail reception and silent auction begin at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner, dancing, and entertainment.

This signature, black-tie evening raises vital funds to help HSHA continue our mission of building a better community for pets and people.

This is your opportunity to partner with HSHA to continue to provide for the homeless animals of Central PA. Purchase your tickets today, by clicking here!

Get Involved...FOSTER

Foster families are an integral part of HSHA because they provide temporary homes for animals that we may not be able to care for in the shelter environment. Fostering is a very rewarding experience. HSHA provides foster families with all of the education and supplies they need. In turn, foster families provide the love and attention that many foster animals need. 

We currently have siblings looking for foster homes. These three came in together as a pack of five. Two of their family members have already landed in FURever homes. Now, they await their turn. For more information about fostering these or other HSHA residents, click here, or contact Aspasia Yeager, HSHA's Foster Care Coordinator at aspasiay@humanesocietyhbg.org.


A sincere thanks to a wonderful group of volunteers from UPMC Pinnacle who made a significant contribution to the shelter. After identifying several projects, teams were formed and the results were very impressive and greatly appreciated. The photos speak for themselves!

How Can I Help Homeless Animals in My Community Today?

Currently our greatest need is canned food for both dogs and cats! Our cats prefer pate but the pups aren't picky! In addition, we could use some Clorox Wipes to help maintain a safe, clean, and healthy environment for all the sheter's residents.

Check out HSHA's Amazon Wish List for more specific needs.

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.
