Low-Cost & Voucher Clinics

Vaccination Clinics (for dogs and cats)

INFORMATION:

HSHA offers low-cost clinics to the public two to three times a month on an annual basis. These clinics are generally hosted at the Shelter's Intake Center on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. Some exceptions apply to accommodate HSHA's special events. Service is based on a first come, first served walk-in basis. Acceptable payment includes Cash, Visa, or Mastercard (checks are not accepted). Clinic dates and locations can be found on our Events Calendar


VACCINES AVAILABLE:

Dog:

Rabies (1 year) - $10

Distemper (DHPP) (1 year) - $10

Distemper with Lepto (DHLPP) (1 year) - $10

Bordetella (kennel cough) (1 year) - $10

Lyme (1 year) - $15 (This vaccine will only be available while supplies last.)

Canine Influenza (Bivalent) (1 year)- $15

Cat:

Rabies (1 year)- $10

FVRCP (1 year) - $10


CORE VACCINE RECOMMENDATIONS:

Dogs should always stay up to date on these vaccinations: Rabies and DHPP (‘distemper’)

Cats should always stay up to date on these vaccinations: Rabies and FVRCP

The remaining vaccines are considered ‘ELECTIVE’ based on the animal’s lifestyle and possible disease exposure (ex: If your dog attends doggy daycare or gets groomed frequently, we recommend Bordetella and Canine Influenza vaccines). It is important to understand that the first time the DHPP, DHLPP, Flu, Lyme and FVRCP and Lepto vaccines are administered, they must be boosted 2-4 weeks after the initial vaccine. After the booster, the vaccine can be administered yearly in ADULT animals. Puppies and kittens must be boosted with DHPP and FVRCP every 2-4 weeks until they are 16 weeks old. (Note: the veterinarian may recommend the final booster be given at 18-20 depending on the animal/breed).


The paperwork you receive at any of HSHA's low-cost clinics, is your official medical record and proof of vaccination. If you lose this paperwork or require copies of the records, you must request them by contacting HSHA's Clinic Coordinator at BrooklynB@humanesocietyhbg.org. There is a 72 hour processing period and a $15 fee will apply for each duplicate or copy.

ADDITIONAL FEES:

  • If HSHA’s medical team experiences extreme aggression from your pet during their visit, an additional fee and waiver will be required for the safety of both the staff and your pet. Handling an aggressive animal requires additional medication and safety precautions.

PROOF OF VACCINES:

Proof of vaccination is required at the time of your pet's appointment. Even if you attended a one of HSHA's vaccine clinics, you must have the paperwork with you documenting which vaccines your pet received. Please note that a rabies tag is not sufficient proof of vaccination. If you cannot provide proof your pet’s vaccines are up-to-date, they will be administered for $10 per rabies vaccines and distemper combination vaccine.

SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT TODAY!

HSHA’s S/N Clinic is available to residents who live in Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry Counties. For those residing in other counties please reference the list of other S/N assistance organizations listed at the very bottom of this page. 

Scheduling an appointment can be done over the phone, or via email.  HSHA's Clinic Coordinator can be reached at 717-564-3320, ext. 111 or scheduling@humanesocietyhbg.org.

Our spay/neuter clinic is very popular and we receive a high volume of phone calls and emails every day.  Please be patient, as it can be several days until you will receive a response.  (Messages are not generally picked up, or responded to, on Wednesdays, Saturdays or Sundays.) In addition, please note that we are often scheduling surgeries for dogs 4-5 months and cats 2-3 months into the future. 

SURGICAL REQUIREMENTS:

To schedule an appointment, your pet:

  • Should be in good health
  • Should not be overweight
  • Should be at least 4 months old
  • Should not be any older than 5 years old (Some larger breed dogs will need to be younger than 5 – just ask at the time you schedule your appointment.).
  • (If a male), should have two testicles that can be felt upon examination
  • If your female dog is in heat, we recommend postponing the surgery until 8-10 weeks after the last signs of heat. If you would still like to proceed with the surgery you will be required to sign a high risk surgical waiver.

PAYMENT INFORMATION & PROCESS:

Deposit

When you schedule an appointment, a $25 non-refundable deposit for each animal is required to hold your appointment. No exceptions will be made. The $25 will go toward the cost of surgery. If you do not show up for your appointment or do not cancel within 48 hours of the scheduled date, the deposit will NOT be refunded. A new deposit will be collected if you wish to reschedule or you may be asked to pay in full. HSHA's staff will do their best to schedule your pet’s surgery with the next available appointment, but the wait can be long. Typically, an appointment will be scheduled several weeks in advance, but during busier times of the year we might have to schedule your pet's surgery a few months into the future.


PRE-OPERATIVE BLOOD WORK:

Pre-operative blood work can be performed and is highly recommended, although not required (unless your pet is 4 years old or older). It may uncover an underlying condition that could cause complications during surgery. Blood work provides a basic health pre-anesthetic evaluation and tests minimal values for baselines of young healthy patients. It provides important information regarding body systems for patients being hospitalized, monitored, and undergoing treatment. The cost for this service is $50 and payment will be processed one week prior to your pet's surgery. 


THE DAY OF SURGERY:

For all animals having surgery- cats and dogs- give NO FOOD AFTER 9 PM THE NIGHT BEFORE SURGERY. Water is ok up until you leave the house on the day of surgery. On the day of surgery, bring your pet to the Intake Center/Clinic entrance (located at the back of our building) between 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. Dogs must be on a non-retractable leash and cats must be in a hard-sided carrier.  Please allow yourself enough time to fill out the necessary paperwork. Remember to bring proof of vaccination if your pet is current on vaccines. Your pet will be ready to go home the same day. When you schedule your appointment, you will be asked to schedule a pick up time between 4:30 – 6:30 PM. Please allow time to go over post-surgical instructions.


OFFICAL MEDICAL RECORDS:

The paperwork you receive at any of HSHA's low-cost clinics, is your official medical record and proof of vaccination. If you lose this paperwork or require copies of the records, you must request them by contacting HSHA's Clinic Cordinator at BrooklynB@humanesocietyhbg.org. There is a 72 hour processing period and a $15 fee will apply for each duplicate or copy.

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!
