Campaign Details


What a special gift to offer a forever home to a shelter animal. Each year, the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area, Inc. (HSHA) takes in thousands of incredible companions available for adoption. They arrive as strays, surrenders, and through cruelty cases all of which are no fault of their own. The holidays are a popular time to bring a new furry friend home. Remember that deciding to promise a home to an animal is a big decision. Why not consider a virtual adoption this Holiday Season. Even though your house may be full right now, you can still enjoy being Santa Claus to all the animals at HSHA. A virtual adoption only requires you to open your heart, not your home, to give the gift of life as the volunteers and staff at HSHA work to find the animals the perfect FURever home outside of the shelter.

Maybe your home already has all that you can handle, or you are not in a position to adopt, a virtual adoption still allows you to take a needy shelter animal under your wing. It gives you the chance to make a difference in the lives of dogs, cats, and critters that are in need, help the busy staff care for their animals, and all the while encouraging those around you to adopt and not shop.


1. Choose the photo of one of our adoptable animals that appears to the right. Save it to your computer. (Right click on the image, choose save image as, and then choose the location on your computer you wish to save the image.)

2. Click on the square associated with the level of giving you are willing to commit to your virtual adoption.

3. Fill out the appropriate information on the Giving Grid square and upload that saved photo of the HSHA animal you are virtually adopting this Holiday Season!

4. SHARE your virtually adopted pet with all your family and friends. Social Media and email are great ways to share your virtual adoption!

5. SMILE Proudly. Your gift saved a life this holiday season and that is priceless!


Happy Holidays from all the "residents," staff, volunteers, and Board of Directors at HSHA!
