Pittie Party and Parade

The Pittie Party celebrates the often misunderstood Pit Bull Breed. This breed makes up a large percentage of HSHA's adoptable dog population. HSHA invites 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 pet owners, food and drink, a photo booth, a costume contest, an adoptable pittie parade, kids activities, and adoption and retail specials!  Well-known Pit Bull advocacy groups will also be on hand at the event. A low-cost vaccination and microchipping clinic will also be available the morning of the event. "HSHA works hard to advocate for the Pit Bull, as they truly make wonderful and loving companions," said HSHA's staff member.  "It's important to show that the breed's often incorrect reputation is primarily a result of human irresponsibility and to educate the public on humane pet ownership."

During the event, adoptions of resident HSHA Pit Bulls will be 50% off.

Below are the 2016 Pittie Party Costume Winners:

Dog Days 5k at City Island

The 1st Annual "Dog Days of Summer" event will be held on Saturday, July 22nd, 2017.

The event is a dog-friendly event. There will be 5K awards for overall male, female and canine; top two finishers in each age category (male and female) 12 and younger, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and older. Participants can choose to walk the 1-mile loop with their dog or, if they are looking for more of a challenge, they can choose to run the 5k event. The 5K will be a chip timed event. The 1 mile walk is for fun and will not be timed.

There will be water stations for walkers/runners and dogs along the course, food and beverage for registrants, raffles, vendors, music and much more!

The first 100 registrants will receive a "doggie goodie bag" compliments of the Dillsburg Veterinary Center.

Participants who register by 11:59 PM on 6/30/17 will be guaranteed a shirt with their paid registration. Online registration will close July 17, 2017 at 11:59 pm. We will have registration the morning of the race/walk beginning at 7:45 - 8:45 am.

The event will take place RAIN or SHINE!

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Unleashed Foundation, which is a non-profit organization providing education on responsible pet ownership as well as financial assistance for necessary medical care to pets whose owners cannot afford veterinary care when the alternative is often needless suffering, surrender or euthanasia.

In 2016, Unleashed, previously known as Libre’s Gift, was established with funds earmarked for cases like Libre’s. His story had touched many and donors were reaching out, eager to support other pets with similar needs. Today, Libre has passed the bone on to the furry friends he has made along the way to continue to cultivate a community that can kick back and go for a run on the sunny days of life, but also provide extra love when gray skies come our way.

All of the funds raised at “Gulliver’s Run” are donated to the National Canine Cancer Foundation and are applied 100% to research and treatment that directly impacts the fight against canine cancer. Together, WE are the cure!
