Report Cruelty

Student Service Project

 
 

Students who wish to satisfy the requirements of a school, scouting or other projects by benefitting the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area might follow any of these suggestions:

  1. Plan, organize, and conduct a donation drive for specific items on our Wish List. The items we almost always need are paper towels, non-scoopable kitty litter, used linens (towels, blankets, sheets, etc.), white copy paper, and unscented bleach. By creating posters or flyers and advertising such a drive, arranging dates, times, and locations for the collection of selected items, and delivering the donations to our shelter, the student would be performing a much-needed service that would greatly benefit our resident animals. 
  2. As another component of the project, the student might write a ‘how-to’ guide that others could use for similar projects in the future. If the student’s school requires HSHA staff verification of the completion of such a project, it would be the student’s responsibility to contact our Director of Marketing at amandab@humanesocietyhbg.org and provide her with all paperwork required in advance. 
  3. Another suggestion is to conduct a cash donation drive, following the same procedures above. The student could designate that the cash be used as Guardian Angel funds for the animal(s) of his/her choice or as a general donation to our shelter.

Please note HSHA is closed Monday, February 20th thru Friday, February 24th for our annual deep cleaning and staff continuing education. We return to normal hours on Saturday, February 25th.

We will be closing at 3pm on Saturday, December 31st for New Years Eve. Thank you and Happy Holidays. Be sure to join us at the Penguin Plunge on City Island Sunday, January 1st starting at 10am.
