To aid in the process, HSHA offers affordable and humane euthanasia and cremation services. Appointments are limited and must be scheduled ahead of time. To schedule an appointment, call HSHA at (717) 564-3320 ext. 112.

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.

Who's a beautiful girl? It's me, Miss Cinne Suede! With my cinnamon-suede coat, I'm a sleek and soft fashion starlet who is about to own the runway. I'm a big girl (54 pounds) who is not even a year old yet. I was born in March, so you know by the time I'm full grown, I'm going to be a solid sister -- all muscle and bright eyes! I have an amazing fawn/lilac coat, and my eyes look green or blue or golden, depending on the light. My toes are dipped in white, and I have a white splash on my chest. I love tennis balls and treats, but I can get jumpy and mouthy very quickly, because I'm young and untrained. That means no kids under 12, please! And I need to be your only pet -- no cats or dogs or critters for me, because I do not respect their space and their needs. That's OK though, because once you meet me, I'll be the only pet you want. Right now I have sore feet that I'm being treated for, and the staff will fill you in on that medical need. And one last thing -- I need to go to a home that has experience with dogs.
Witches, vampires, monsters, and other scary icons are a big part of Halloween--especially ghosts! How would you like to meet a cute, soft, furry ghost who hops? Well, let me introduce myself. I'm Ghost, a very cute bunny with long floppy ears and fluffy brown and white spotted fur. I'm a friendly ghost (like Casper) who likes to be petted and brushed. Not all ghosts are out for revenge or scares! I enjoy rearranging the furniture in my cage because it's hard for me to be confined, so a home where I can run and play outside of my cage would be ideal. I love to play with boxes, hiding inside or flipping them in the air. I'm a little nervous about being picked up, but if you go slowly and gently, I'll come around and let you transport me short distances. Sometimes I get perturbed when people move my stuff around, so it will be best to clean my cage without me in it! If you would like to meet a ghost who will leave you with a warm heart rather than cold chills, come in soon to meet me, Ghost the bunny! You won't be spooked by this furry critter with long floppy ears, although I might "go bump in the night" once in a while. If you adopt me you can tell everyone that you have a "haunted" house and invite them to meet your mini-Ghost! ***I now live at Zoomania, the cool pet store in the Colonial Park Mall.
