Student Service Project

Students who wish to satisfy the requirements of a school, scouting or other project by benefitting the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area might follow any of these suggestions:

  1. Plan, organize, and conduct a donation drive for specific items on our Wish List. The items we almost always need are paper towels, non-scoopable kitty litter, used linens (towels, blankets, sheets, etc.), white copy paper, and unscented bleach. By creating posters or flyers and advertising such a drive, arranging dates, times, and locations for the collection of selected items, and delivering the donations to our shelter, the student would be performing a much-needed service that would greatly benefit our resident animals. 
  2. As another component of the project, the student might write a ‘how-to’ guide that others could use for similar projects in the future. If the student’s school requires HSHA staff verification of the completion of such a project, it would be the student’s responsibility to contact our Director of Marketing at amandab@humanesocietyhbg.org and provide her with all paperwork required in advance. 
  3. Another suggestion is to conduct a cash donation drive, following the same procedures above. The student could designate that the cash be used as Guardian Angel funds for the animal(s) of his/her choice or as a general donation to our shelter.

Pet of the Week

Hiss Magnolia

Hi! I'm Hiss Magnolia, a gorgeous 5 year old tortie darling who lost my home because my owners were moving. Don't worry, I don't hiss at all and you'll barely hear a peep (or meow) out of me. My former name was Ms. Peaches, but I like Magnolia, too. The Magnolia flower symbolizes beauty and gentleness, two of my many lovely character qualities. I'm mild-mannered and affectionate, always appreciative of attention and affection. I was sad to lose my home and quite confused and afraid for my first few weeks here. I felt like a withered, drooping flower. I've come a long way, though, and now I come out of my box to be petted and held. I'm eager to love and be loved, so a quiet, calm home would be the best environment for me. I would be a lovely companion if you are on the market for a low-energy cat who just wants to enjoy your company. I may need some time to adjust to my new surroundings, but if you are patient and understanding, I'm sure to be sitting on your lap and rubbing my cheeks on you in no time!

 

 

Champ

Hi there! I'm Champ, a hunky 3 year old Mastiff/Labrador mix. My family made the difficult decision to surrender me since they could no longer care for me. I would benefit from an experienced family that can further my training and social skills. I am a bigger boy at about 90lbs and very strong! As a result, any kids in my new home should be 12 or older. I need a feline free home, but I like other dogs and played well with the ones I met here. So, if you're looking for a handsome hunk to add to the family, come in and meet me, Champ!
