Pittie Party

Saturday, October 19th 2024
11:00am – 3:00pm
at the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area

The Pittie Party is a FREE community event.

We will be celebrating and advocating for the often misunderstood Pitbull-type dogs.

Pitbulls make up a large percentage of HSHA’s adoptable dog population so, we invite all animal lovers (and their leashed canine pals of all breeds) each year to join us for a free, fun-filled day celebrating breed equality.

Visitors can enjoy:

  • Vendors for pets and owners
  • Food and drink
  • “Kiss-a-Bull” Photo Booth
  • 50% off adoption fees of pitbull type dogs
  • Event T-Shirt Sales
  • Kids activities by donation (face painting, pumpkin panting, adopt a stuffed dog)
  • Raffle baskets
  • Canine Costume Contest (more details below)
  • …and more!


Canine Costume Contest

Dress up your pup and check-in to the costume contest table between 12:00pm and 1:30pm.

We will take a photo of you and your pup and take the contest to SOCIAL MEDIA! Our Facebook fans will vote by “likes”- so get your friends and family ready to vote! Contest will start Saturday at 4:00pm and run through Monday at 12:00pm. Winners will be announced Monday afternoon. Pet Owners will be contacted to come pick up their prizes at the shelter that week!
