Volunteers are a vital part of the HSHA team. Without them, we would not be able to perform many of the essential functions at our shelter. HSHA is always looking for dedicated and committed volunteers to assist with the shelter animals and some of the everyday responsibilities of shelter life. Whether you are interested in walking dogs, helping at events, or socializing cats, there is a place for you at HSHA. The animals are waiting for you ... get started today!
1. Download a volunteer application here. After filling it out, Fax (Fax #717-564-1867) it to Megan Strausbaugh, HSHA's Director of Marketing, scan and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, drop it off during regular business hours or mail it to the shelter (7790 Grayson Road, Harrisburg 17111). Or click here to fill out our online application. You will be contacted after your application has been processed.
Potential volunteers, please note:
2. Review the volunteer handbook. Volunteers should be familiar with the policies and procedures detailed in the manual.
For more information, contact HSHA's Director of Marketing, Megan Strausbaugh at (717) 564-3320x125 or email@example.com.
NOTE TO DOG WALKERS:
Dog walking volunteers are required to purchase an approved leash (approximately $10) for use with HSHA dogs prior to the start of your volunteering. This requirement is for the safety of both volunteers and dogs.
We are currently in need of soft training treats (made in USA), Busy Bones, sensitive stomach cat food, peanut butter, unscented bleach, liquid laundry detergent, Dawn dishwashing detergent, Clorox wipes, waterless shampoo, kitten milk replacer, and paper towels. If you'd like to help out, please drop some off at the shelter!
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.
