Request a Tour, Speaker or Event Participation

Are you interested in learning more about the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area, Inc. (HSHA) and what it does for the community? Do you want to take a tour of the HSHA Facility? Or perhaps you are hosting an event and want to know if a representative from the HSHA could be present to participate?

The HSHA staff and volunteers are always willing to share the mission of the Humane Society through speaking opportunities, event participation, and guiding a tour in the shelter. HSHA speakers typically present on the following topics, but are open to suggestions:

  • What does the Humane Society do?
  • How can you help the Humane Society?
  • How can your business partner with the Humane Society?
  • A day in the life of a shelter pet
  • Animal protection - how you can help
  • Or other customized topics

HSHA receives many requests so in order to meet the needs of each inquiry we ask that you please fill out this form and return it to Nancy Valdez, Volunteer Coordinator, at for consideration.
