PROGRAMS & ACTIVITIES

At HSHA, we recognize that humane education is a key facet to improve the current conditions and pave the future for the pets and people within our communities. Humane education promotes knowledge, understanding, skills, attitudes and values related to human involvement in the lives of animals. It can bring about beneficial changes in the treatment of animals at the hands of humans. At HSHA, we provide ample opportunities to facilitate such learning through services like the Book Buddies Program, guided shelter tours, presentations on responsible pet ownership, lesson plan generation to supplement teachers in their classrooms, and the Animal Exchange Program. Choose the corresponding link in the navigation menu at the top of this website to learn more about each program and service. Please keep in mind that these programs and services are appropriate for all age groups. YOU can change the world by educating yourself!

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!
