Humane Pennsylvania is hosting a weekend full of events, featuring a pet food donation drive benefitting Spike’s Pet Pantry, a fee-waived adoption weekend, and a flea market featuring a variety of vendors.

This three-day event will take place on Friday, September 23rd, through Sunday, September 25th, at our Lancaster and Berks County adoption centers. This event has been made possible thanks to Silverbox Creative Studios. Please see specific details and event breakdown below.

Stuff The Tiny House: Fee-Waived Adoption Weekend (Friday, September 23rd – Sunday, September 25th):

Humane Pennsylvania is seeking donations of dry dog and cat food to help stock Spike’s Pet Pantry shelves ahead of the winter months. This will help keep pets fed throughout the community.
