5K Run/Walk for the Animals

22nd Annual 5K Run/Walk for the Animals | Wildwood Park | May 4, 2019 

The 22nd Annual 5K Run/Walk for the Animals will be hosted on May 4, 2019 and once again, at Wildwood Park in Harrisburg. Each years hundreds of HSHA supporters join us for a day filled with fun, entertainment and adventure. This family and pet friendly event is hosted outdoors, rain or shine, to raise money for all the homeless animals of Central PA. The fund through this event goes directly to the care of the over 500 pets currently residing at the shelter awaiting their FURever homes. Included in the festivites are 30+ vendors providing goods and services for humans and their pets, along with a food truck with all kinds of treats to keep the good times rolling!

The 2018 5K Run/Walk for the Animals highlighted a special canine that was formerly a resident of the shelter. Congratulations to Tucker, the first place canine competitor that has been victorious two years in a row.

How Can I Help Homeless Animals in My Community Today?

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.
