Item Donation & Wish List



The Humane Society of Harrisburg Area is always accepting donations.  Donations can be dropped off at 7790 Grayson Road, Harrisburg (we have a donation area to the left of our Adoption Center Entrance).  You can also order items from Amazon and have them shipped directly to HSHA!*

HSHA 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.

*Please note that items listed on the Amazon Wishlist are only a suggestion of each type of item on our list (unless a brand name is specifically mentioned below).
