Part of being a responsible pet owner is committing to care for your pets for the duration of their life. However, if you are forced to give up your pet, HSHA encourages you to make every effort to find it a new home with a family member, friend, co-worker, or other caring person. Please exhaust all possible options before coming to the Humane Society.
In addition, if you are experiencing behavioral challenges with your animal, are moving to a place that is not pet friendly, or are facing financial issues that make it difficult to care for your pet, HSHA is here to help. We provide behavioral advice, lists of local pet-friendly housing, and low-cost clinics. Call the shelter at (717) 564-3320.
In the event that no other options are available, please contact the Humane Society at (717) 564-3320 to make a surrender appointment. Acceptance of surrendered animals is dependant on space and cannot be guaranteed. Additionally, a surrender fee is required to help defray the cost of caring for the animal. Surrender fees are: $122 for dogs (non pit bull), $265.90 for pit bulls, and $135.70 for cats.
We are currently in need of Non-clumping (clay) cat litter, Liquid Laundry detergent, Paper towels, Hand soap, Ziplock style sandwich baggies (any brand), 13 and 60 Gallon Trash bags, Purina Healthy Weight Cat Chow (orange bag- dry food), Purina ONE Sensitive Stomach cat food (dry food), Kitten canned food (any brand), Soft and chewy dog treats, Gift cards for Gasoline (for animal transport and cruelty investigations); Pet Stores (for animal supplies and food), Local stores (Walmart, Weis, Giant, Home Depot, Lowes- for emergency supplies and building repairs); Office Supply Stores (paper, ink cartridges, etc).
