Lost and Found

The Humane Society of Harrisburg Area maintains files of owners searching for their pets, as well as files of individuals who report a found animal. Reuniting hundreds of pets with their families each year is one of the most rewarding parts of what we do. Stray pets are held for 48 hours before being eligible to go up for adoption. If you have lost your pet or have found what appears to be an owned but stray animal, please contact HSHA at (717) 564-3320.


If your animal has been found and brought to HSHA, you will be required to pay a redemption fee that is based on the number of days your animal has been at the shelter:

  • REDEMPTION ON THE SAME DAY YOUR PET CAME IN: $30 (as of September 2018)
  • REDEMPTION THE DAY AFTER YOUR PET CAME IN: $54.50
  • ADDITIONAL COST FOR SUBSEQUENT DAYS: $10 per day 

If You Find a Stray Animal

  • File a found report with the Humane Society by calling 717-564-3320.
  • File a found report with your local police.
  • Contact your local municipality for instructions on what to do with the animal.
  • Be cautious when approaching the stray animal.
  • Be careful about bringing the animal into your home, especially if you have your own animals.

Pet of the Week

Cinni Suede

 My Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/cinni-suede-46342083/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

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.

 Ghost

My Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/rabbit/ghost-46469396/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

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.
