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

Dekker

My Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/dekker-46587217/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

I am a young, handsome Pit Bull Terrier mix that was found as a stray. I am super happy and friendly, but everything seems new to me. I'm not sure how to walk on a leash and I want to be close to you, so I jump up and put my paws on you. For that reason, any kids in my new home should be at least 10 years old. The staff and volunteers are working on teaching me commands, but my new family should be ready to continue that training and even take me to obedience lessons. I like other dogs, so if you have a dog in your home, that should be fine. I can also live with dog savvy cats. So, come on in to meet me, Dekker. I'll be super happy to see you!

Lemon Sorbet Monet

My Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/lemon-sorbet-monet-46557138/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

I'm sweet and refreshing, a cool cat with a warm heart. Maybe I should have been named Lemony Snicket, since my life has been a series of unfortunate events. It's all in the past and hey, if life gives you lemons, make lemonade (or lemon sorbet)! I'm ready for a new life with someone who will love me deeply and give me a comfortable and fun home. I like being called Lemon because I'm full of zest! I was timid when I first came, but now I'm always bursting with love and affection for everyone. I have a great time in the playroom chasing wand toys and feather toys, and oh do I LOVE chasing that laser dot! That wasn't the case a short while ago, though. I was afraid in the playroom and meowed to go back to my cage, but now I'm confident, brave and happy. If you adopt me, I'll be a pillar of warmth in your life, always ready for a snuggle and a head bunt, or even a kiss on the nose! I'm used to living with other cats, but I could be OK as your only feline friend. Since I'm still very young, only about a year old, I'll need a home with someone who has time to play and interact with me. So put your green juice down and push that smoothie aside! Get ready for the health benefits of Lemon! I'm never a sourpuss and will always cheer you up and help you feel better. Come in soon and get ready for some Sour Power...and Pucker Power...ask for the inky-furred feline, Lemon Sorbet Monet!
