Adopt a Pet


Adopting During COVID-19

To ensure the safety of our staff and volunteers while providing the same level of quality care to our animals, temporary modifications have been made to our operations until further notice. Adopters are asked to please fill out an adoption application and submit online. If you are unable to complete the form online, please call 717-764-6109 so a time can be scheduled for you to complete the application at the shelter. Once we approve your application, we will contact you to schedule an adoption appointment. In your application, please specify the name and registration number of which animal you are interested in adopting.
