Join hundreds of HSHA supporters as they "take the plunge" for homeless animals on New Year's Day! The Penguin Plunge is an annual fundraiser for the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area (HSHA) that has become a central Pennsylvania tradition for both HSHA and the City of Harrisburg. During the event, more than 300 HSHA supporters “take the plunge” into the icy waters of the Susquehanna River, as hundreds more watch from the shore. Individuals who raise over $75 will receive an event towel. For teams to receive towels, each member must raise at least $75. Make it a Happy New Year!
Curious what the Penguin Plunge is all about? Check out these short videos from January 1, 2019!
Missy Sue came out ontop in the 2019 Competition against Tommy Tucker out fundraising the Media Star. Click here to watch Tommy admit defeat by plunging into the Icy Susquehanna sporting his red, white, and blue! While Missy Sue has been victorious, she is sadly still waiting to be adopted. Help us find her a home this New Year before the end of January #OperationHomeforMissySue #AdoptMissySue
At the 2019 Penguin Plunge we just nearly hit our fundraising goal of $30,000. We are currently sitting at $27,000 raised for the homeless shelter residents. Don't worry... there's still time to make a donation to help HSHA continue to build a better community for pets and people in 2019 and beyond. It's quick, easy, and secure.

Currently our greatest need is canned food for both dogs and cats! Our cats prefer pate but the pups aren't picky! In addition, we could use some Clorox Wipes to help maintain a safe, clean, and healthy environment for all the sheter's residents.
Check out HSHA's Amazon Wish List for more specific needs.
We have several dogs and cats that are looking for a foster home. If you think you may be able to help, please visit our Fosters Needed page.
