The Humane Society of Harrisburg Area understands how difficult and costly it can be to put a beloved animal to sleep. To aid in the process, HSHA offers affordable and humane euthanasia and cremation services.
Appointments are available on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays at 4:00, 4:30. 5:00 and 5:30. Pet owners are not permitted to be present during euthanasia. There will be a $25 deposit required for this appointment, used towards the cost of the euthanasia. In the event that the pet owner does now show up for the appointment, without contacting the shelter, the $25 deposit will not be returned. To schedule an appointment, call HSHA at (717) 564-3320.
Caskets are also available for purchase through HSHA. To schedule an appointment, call HSHA at (717) 564-3320.

HSHA does not accept feral cats to be euthanized. The organization only accepts feral cats to be altered and returned to the place from which they came (known as “Trap-Neuter-Return” or “TNR”). In order to receive a FREE Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) surgery for a feral cat, you must obtain a TNR Voucher from the municipality in which you reside. Only municipalities that contract with HSHA for services will have these vouchers to distribute. Each municipality will also determine how many vouchers may be distributed per individual. To find out if your municipality contracts with HSHA for services and if they are distributing TNR vouchers, contact your municipal building directly after January 1, 2012. Citizens who do not have access to TNR Vouchers may continue to participate in HSHA’s TNR Program on a paid basis. Costs are $45 for a neuter and $65 for a spay, plus additional costs for FeLV/FIV testing and basic vaccinations. An appointment is required for TNR services (regardless of whether you have a voucher). To schedule an appointment, please call HSHA at (717) 564-3320 and follow the recorded prompts.
HSHA is now offering humane traps for rental to assist with the trapping of feral cats for the Trap-Neuter-Return program. We will require a $60 credit card deposit per trap. Once the trap is returned the $60 fee will be refunded to your credit card. Traps will be available on a first come first serve basis and can be picked up any time during normal business hours. Traps are asked to be returned within 7 days. If an extension is needed please notify staff.
We are currently in need of paper towels, non-clumping kitty litter, non-scented clorox bleach, sturdy dog toys, dry kitten chow food and cat toys. If you'd like to help out, please drop some off at the shelter!
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.
