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.

Sweet cinnamon and brown sugar cupcake with butterscotch frosting and chocolate sprinkles?   That's me, a tasty treat of a dog! As you can see, I'm a gorgeous golden brindle girl with unique eyes. In some light they are a pale robin's egg blue, and in other light they are a cool yellow. I'm probably around two years old and I never stop moving! Think of me as a high-energy puppy who is ready for training and exercise. I love to get out and do things, but I'll need some work on my leash manners. I love to play with other dogs, and the right canine pal will help me burn some energy. I do not like cats and cannot live with them. I would do best with kids over 12 and plenty of plushy soft toys to play with.

 

Mystery Man

There's a cat who lives a life of danger, Everyone he meets, he stays a stranger, With every move he makes, Another chance he takes, Odds are he wont't live to see tomorrow...Secret Agent Cat, Secret Agent Cat, They've given you a number (A419), and taken away your name. That was me, Mystery Man, before someone brought me here to save me from my dangerous life of espionage in their neighborhood. I was starving and smelled food outside at their house, so I followed the clues and found a yummy dinner! The family that lived there fed me every day, since I was very thin and always hungry. It was like being at the Catsino Royale! They did not know my identity, so everyone called me Mystery. One night while on a special mission, I caught my foot on something sharp and sustained a terrible wound on my back paw. Unable to run from my nemesis, Dr. Claw, my cover was blown and I had to give up my life as a super sleuth. There were also several other spy cats in the area who didn't like me treading their turf. So now I am here, hoping to find a new family because I LOVE people and feel very lonely. I'm Tom Cruise handsome, very affectionate, and bond strongly with the humans I meet. I can be boisterous and meow loudly to get attention and head scratches. I like to play with wand toys, but I enjoy sniffing around the playroom, looking for clues as to how I can escape! I adapt well to new situations and roll with the punches, but I have trouble living in a cage, since I was used to wandering on my own for a while. I get along with other cats and am super friendly and outgoing. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come to HSHA right away and meet me. I would really like a loving family and a home where I can explore and continue my quest to save the world from mischief and mayhem! I hope finding a home won't be "Mission Impossible" for me! Please come in to meet the coolest spy cat ever! I'll be a fun, loyal, loving companion...there's no mystery about that!
