Shelter Sweetheart Week

Furry & Loveable Valentines Featured During Shelter Sweetheart Week

HSHA believes that true Valentine's Day sweethearts have fur and more than two legs. That's why community members are invited to find their true love during HSHA's annual Shelter Sweetheart week, from February 11th to 15th. During the event the adoption fees of fifty Shelter Sweethearts will be cut in half. This event supports the shelter's longest residents in finding their FURever, loving, new home. We encourage everyone to consider celebrating Valentine's Day with the unconditional love of a new pet. 

P.S. Don't forget about our SOUL MATES! At HSHA, we define Soul Mates as bonded pairs of animals that have to be adopted into the same FURever home. When one of these amazing pairs is adopted during Shelter Sweethearts Week, the adoption fee for the first animal is 50% off, while the second is completely waived! This year, we expect to have several pairs of Soul Mates available during Shelter Sweetheart Week. So, why adopt ONE when you can have TWO!!!


Please note: Despite the special event and reduced fees, the standard adoption policies and procedures will still apply. Similarly, adoption prices include spay or neuter surgery, microchip, and basic vaccines.

Pet of the Week

Benaiah (Rooney)

https://www.petfinder.com/dog/benaiah-rooney-44180536/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Handsome, handsome, handsome. That's all anyone says about me. I'm Benaiah, named after a character in the bible who bravely killed a lion. But everyone here just calls me Benny! I was born in 2017 and was first at the shelter in the spring of 2018. My ears had just been (badly) cropped and they needed care, then my rear leg was severely injured and my owners neglected to get treatment soon enough. My friends at the shelter took me back in July 2018, but it was too late for my leg -- it had to be amputated. So I became a tripod dog! Of course it did not slow me down one bit. I was adopted in March of 2019 after HSHA won ownership of me in the cruelty case against my neglectful owner. I got a new name, Rooney...but I was returned in August 2019. My first two years of life have been difficult, and I'm really in need of a stable, permanent home. I'm very much a dog who lives in the present, and no tough past is going to hang on my shoulders. I'm looking for a special family who can give me the life I deserve after spending so many months recuperating in the shelter, only to be adopted and returned. I love to play fetch and I've even learned the command "drop it," which I'm very proud of, I know "sit" too, and I love to get rewarded with treats and affection. I've very strong, so no kids under 12 in my new home, please.

Chantey

Hold me! I'm Chantey, a small black cat who was a stray. I love to be held, and if you could walk me over to a window and let me watch the birds, that would be perfect. I'm slightly fearful and still trying to figure everything out. My life on the streets may have been tough, and I'm not sure who to trust yet. However, I'm trying hard. I know black cats gets overlooked, so I'm hoping my huge golden eyes will make people stop and say "Wow, I need to adopt that black cat!"
