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 you are alerted that 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:
