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. 

We also have printable wish lists specific to different species:

  1. Equine
  2. Cats
  3. Dogs
  4. Both Cats & Dogs

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 and support us everytime you shop.

Pet of the Week

Benaiah (Rooney)

https://www.petfinder.com/dog/benaiah-rooney-44180536/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Handsome, handsome, handsome. That's all anyone says about me. I'm Benaiah, named after a character in the bible who bravely killed a lion. But everyone here just calls me Benny! I was born in 2017 and was first at the shelter in the spring of 2018. My ears had just been (badly) cropped and they needed care, then my rear leg was severely injured and my owners neglected to get treatment soon enough. My friends at the shelter took me back in July 2018, but it was too late for my leg -- it had to be amputated. So I became a tripod dog! Of course it did not slow me down one bit. I was adopted in March of 2019 after HSHA won ownership of me in the cruelty case against my neglectful owner. I got a new name, Rooney...but I was returned in August 2019. My first two years of life have been difficult, and I'm really in need of a stable, permanent home. I'm very much a dog who lives in the present, and no tough past is going to hang on my shoulders. I'm looking for a special family who can give me the life I deserve after spending so many months recuperating in the shelter, only to be adopted and returned. I love to play fetch and I've even learned the command "drop it," which I'm very proud of, I know "sit" too, and I love to get rewarded with treats and affection. I've very strong, so no kids under 12 in my new home, please.

Chantey 

https://www.petfinder.com/cat/chantey-45192764/pa/harrisburg/humane-society-of-harrisburg-area-pa120/

Hold me! I'm Chantey, a small black cat who was a stray. I love to be held, and if you could walk me over to a window and let me watch the birds, that would be perfect. I'm slightly fearful and still trying to figure everything out. My life on the streets may have been tough, and I'm not sure who to trust yet. However, I'm trying hard. I know black cats gets overlooked, so I'm hoping my huge golden eyes will make people stop and say "Wow, I need to adopt that black cat!"
