Other Ways to Help

Planned Giving

Pet lovers understand stewardship better than most. They know that no matter what else is happening in their lives, our pets will always be by our side with comfort and support. One way pet lovers can make sure they reciprocate that unwavering and uncondiation love is through planned giving for the homeless animals in our communities. One of the easiest ways to support the Humane Society through planned giving is by remembering HSHA in your will. You can designate a specific dollar amount, leave a share of your estate, will a bank account, or leave stock. Simply contact your attorney to include HSHA in your will. Other examples of planned giving include donations through life insurance policies, trusts, annuities and estates. 

Workplace Giving

Do you work for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or the federal government? Perhaps you are employed by another organization that participates in workplace giving? If so, consider donating to HSHA through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), the State Employees Combined Appeal (SECA), or the United Way. HSHA’s codes for Workplace Giving are:

  • 4401-0027 (SECA)
  • 77697 (CFC)
  • 3022 (United Way)

Also, many employers will match contributions made to charitable organizations. Check with your human resources office about matching programs.

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. 



A Resident Housing Sponsorship with the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area gives you the opportunity to have a plaque displayed at one of our dog kennels or cat banks for a full year. Plaques are a great way to honor or remember a family member, friend, furry loved ones, or recognize your business or organization. You choose what your plaque says, and we’ll send you a photo with the location to let you know where to find it the next time to stop by HSHA.
