Surrendering Your Pet

Part of being a responsible pet owner is committing to care for your pets for the duration of their life. Sometimes pet owners experience challenging behaviors in their pets and may even consider giving their pet up to the HSHA as a result. Before turning to this option, consider contacting us for guidance and reviewing the information below to discover possible solutions to the problem. But, 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 HSHA.

Consider these resources, tips, and tricks to prevent surrending your animal to the shelter:

In the event that you have exhaused all possible options, contact HSHA 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.

Cinni Suede

 My Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/cinni-suede-46342083/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Who's a beautiful girl? It's me, Miss Cinne Suede! With my cinnamon-suede coat, I'm a sleek and soft fashion starlet who is about to own the runway. I'm a big girl (54 pounds) who is not even a year old yet. I was born in March, so you know by the time I'm full grown, I'm going to be a solid sister -- all muscle and bright eyes! I have an amazing fawn/lilac coat, and my eyes look green or blue or golden, depending on the light. My toes are dipped in white, and I have a white splash on my chest. I love tennis balls and treats, but I can get jumpy and mouthy very quickly, because I'm young and untrained. That means no kids under 12, please! And I need to be your only pet -- no cats or dogs or critters for me, because I do not respect their space and their needs. That's OK though, because once you meet me, I'll be the only pet you want. Right now I have sore feet that I'm being treated for, and the staff will fill you in on that medical need. And one last thing -- I need to go to a home that has experience with dogs.

 Ghost

My Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/rabbit/ghost-46469396/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Witches, vampires, monsters, and other scary icons are a big part of Halloween--especially ghosts! How would you like to meet a cute, soft, furry ghost who hops? Well, let me introduce myself. I'm Ghost, a very cute bunny with long floppy ears and fluffy brown and white spotted fur. I'm a friendly ghost (like Casper) who likes to be petted and brushed. Not all ghosts are out for revenge or scares! I enjoy rearranging the furniture in my cage because it's hard for me to be confined, so a home where I can run and play outside of my cage would be ideal. I love to play with boxes, hiding inside or flipping them in the air. I'm a little nervous about being picked up, but if you go slowly and gently, I'll come around and let you transport me short distances. Sometimes I get perturbed when people move my stuff around, so it will be best to clean my cage without me in it! If you would like to meet a ghost who will leave you with a warm heart rather than cold chills, come in soon to meet me, Ghost the bunny! You won't be spooked by this furry critter with long floppy ears, although I might "go bump in the night" once in a while. If you adopt me you can tell everyone that you have a "haunted" house and invite them to meet your mini-Ghost!  ***I now live at Zoomania, the cool pet store in the Colonial Park Mall.
