Wish List

The Humane Society of Harrisburg Area relies solely on donations of supplies and funding from the community to carry out our mission. Our wish list contains the items that we always need. While many of the items on our list appear very practical (i.e. copy paper, brooms, paper towels), they are nonetheless essential items to ensure the best care for our animals. When you shop at AmazonSmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to HSHA. You can access our general wish list through Amazon by clicking here or our equine wish list by click here. Support us every time you shop.
