Ranger Update

Ranger, known as Rebel while at the shelter, arrived as a stray from the City of Harrisburg. This young an energetic pup stayed at HSHA for only a brief period of time before his FURever family discovered him and all his glory! Recently his adopters sent us an update on the past year of his life. Read all about Ranger's adventures below:


I like to send updates from time to time. Ranger (aka "Rebel") is happier than ever, almost a year and a half after his adoption! He smiles constantly (see attached photo) and loves long walks and playing fetch in the back yard. He's a very busy young man who still enjoys doing his nightly zoomies on the stairs, chewing bones, chasing tennis balls, snuggling with blankets, and laying in the yard watching airplanes.  We actually took him (and his lab/pit sister) on an overnight camping trip in September. He hiked 7 miles, slept overnight in our tent (to be specific, he worked his way into my sleeping bag), and hiked 7 miles back to the car the next morning! He absolutely adored spending so much time in nature.

Thank you so much for our special boy! Happy holidays!

Pet of the Week


Ding! The baker is in and Cupcake is ready for adoption. Her name describes her perfectly as she is sweet and has a beautiful cinnamon colored coat. Cupcake is energetic and sometimes does lose sight of her manners, it’s hard to bring her down from her sugar rush, so we do ask that kids be at least 12 years old in her new home. Obedience classes would benefit her greatly to help polish up her manners! A dog friend to romp around with would be sweet! She enjoyed playing with her dog friend here. As for cats, they seem a little too tasty, so please no felines! So, if you are looking for a sweet treat Cupcake might be the one for you. Check me out on PetFinder!
