Mature Pets for Mature People

Growing older doesn't mean growing lonelier. The Mature Pets for Mature People program offers senior citizens 60 years or older the opportunity to adopt a companion animal free of charge.

Pets who are chosen for the program are at least five years old and spayed/neutered. Additionally, if a senior would rather adopt a pet that is younger (between the ages of 6 months and up to 5 years), the adoption fee will be reduced.

Senior citizens interested in adopting a pet through the Mature Pets for Mature People program are invited to complete an application at any time. Applications can be obtained by calling HSHA at 717-564-3320.

Sweet cinnamon and brown sugar cupcake with butterscotch frosting and chocolate sprinkles?   That's me, a tasty treat of a dog! As you can see, I'm a gorgeous golden brindle girl with unique eyes. In some light they are a pale robin's egg blue, and in other light they are a cool yellow. I'm probably around two years old and I never stop moving! Think of me as a high-energy puppy who is ready for training and exercise. I love to get out and do things, but I'll need some work on my leash manners. I love to play with other dogs, and the right canine pal will help me burn some energy. I do not like cats and cannot live with them. I would do best with kids over 12 and plenty of plushy soft toys to play with.

There's a cat who lives a life of danger, Everyone he meets, he stays a stranger, With every move he makes, Another chance he takes, Odds are he wont't live to see tomorrow...Secret Agent Cat, Secret Agent Cat, They've given you a number (A419), and taken away your name. That was me, Mystery Man, before someone brought me here to save me from my dangerous life of espionage in their neighborhood. I was starving and smelled food outside at their house, so I followed the clues and found a yummy dinner! The family that lived there fed me every day, since I was very thin and always hungry. It was like being at the Catsino Royale! They did not know my identity, so everyone called me Mystery. One night while on a special mission, I caught my foot on something sharp and sustained a terrible wound on my back paw. Unable to run from my nemesis, Dr. Claw, my cover was blown and I had to give up my life as a super sleuth. There were also several other spy cats in the area who didn't like me treading their turf. So now I am here, hoping to find a new family because I LOVE people and feel very lonely. I'm Tom Cruise handsome, very affectionate, and bond strongly with the humans I meet. I can be boisterous and meow loudly to get attention and head scratches. I like to play with wand toys, but I enjoy sniffing around the playroom, looking for clues as to how I can escape! I adapt well to new situations and roll with the punches, but I have trouble living in a cage, since I was used to wandering on my own for a while. I get along with other cats and am super friendly and outgoing. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come to HSHA right away and meet me. I would really like a loving family and a home where I can explore and continue my quest to save the world from mischief and mayhem! I hope finding a home won't be "Mission Impossible" for me! Please come in to meet the coolest spy cat ever! I'll be a fun, loyal, loving companion...there's no mystery about that!
