How to Adopt and Package Pricing

If you’re looking for a wonderful life-long companion, then you’ve come to the right place! HSHA has hundreds of animals of every shape and size to choose from. During their stay, our guests are treated by HSHA staff and volunteers to many enriching activities, such as walks, outings, behavior training and socialization. Our staff and volunteers are very knowledgeable about our animals and can help direct you to appropriate matches. Each animal has something unique to offer, and adopters are sure to find the right animal for their home at HSHA.


Before You Adopt

  • Make sure everyone in your family understands the commitment of owning a pet.
  • If you rent, check with your landlord to ensure pets are allowed where you live.
  • To expedite the adoption process, please bring proof of current vaccinations for any pets you already own with you to the shelter. 
  • There are two options for bringing current pets up-to-date on vaccinations if they are not vaccinated: 1) schedule an appointment with your personal veterinarian to have your animal(s) vaccinated; or 2) attend one of HSHA's scheduled vaccine clinics.
  • Regardless of which method you use to bring your current pet(s) up to date on vaccinations, there will be a five day waiting period after your pet(s) vaccination before you can adopt a new pet.
  • Everyone in your family will also need to meet the new pet prior to finalizing the adoption.
  • For out-of-state adoptions, a $50 deposit is required and is refundable upon completion of adoption. 

Applying

All potential adopters must complete an adoption application. Applications are available at the shelter’s front desk or by downloading here:

Pet of the Week

Hiss Magnolia

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/hiss-magnolia-ms-peaches-47098603/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Hi! I'm Hiss Magnolia, a gorgeous 5 year old tortie darling who lost my home because my owners were moving. Don't worry, I don't hiss at all and you'll barely hear a peep (or meow) out of me. My former name was Ms. Peaches, but I like Magnolia, too. The Magnolia flower symbolizes beauty and gentleness, two of my many lovely character qualities. I'm mild-mannered and affectionate, always appreciative of attention and affection. I was sad to lose my home and quite confused and afraid for my first few weeks here. I felt like a withered, drooping flower. I've come a long way, though, and now I come out of my box to be petted and held. I'm eager to love and be loved, so a quiet, calm home would be the best environment for me. I would be a lovely companion if you are on the market for a low-energy cat who just wants to enjoy your company. I may need some time to adjust to my new surroundings, but if you are patient and understanding, I'm sure to be sitting on your lap and rubbing my cheeks on you in no time!

 

 

Champ

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/champ-47038564/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Hi there! I'm Champ, a hunky 3 year old Mastiff/Labrador mix. My family made the difficult decision to surrender me since they could no longer care for me. I would benefit from an experienced family that can further my training and social skills. I am a bigger boy at about 90lbs and very strong! As a result, any kids in my new home should be 12 or older. I need a feline free home, but I like other dogs and played well with the ones I met here. So, if you're looking for a handsome hunk to add to the family, come in and meet me, Champ!
