Building a Better Community for Pets and People

HSHA is a 501©3 organization that has been serving the community since 1911. HSHA accepts homeless animals regardless of their breed, age, medical condition, or behavioral condition. However, HSHA does not euthanize adoptable animals due to lack of space or length of stay. HSHA assists over 10,000 animals each year through our residential care and adoption program, low-cost veterinary clinics, pet food bank, and other services. At any given time, there can be close to 500 animals under our care. HSHA is funded solely by the community and could not fulfill our mission without the community’s support.

Our Mission

The mission of the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area (HSHA) is to build a better community for pets and people through compassion, protection, education, and collaboration.
