Humane Pennsylvania relies entirely on services fees and donations from the community. Our Humane Pennsylvania Partner Organizations try to make giving easy and fun by having awesome special and fundraising events in their local communities. We know people want to support the work we do for animals but we also know that no one likes to go to an event that’s a total drag! We know you’ll find a great and fun event near you- and most are “pets welcome!”- which will offer the chance to do good and have fun at the same time.

Check out some featured highlighted events listed below or view our full Humane Pennsylvania calendar including complete event listings at some of our partner organizations in Berks and Lancaster Counties!


ART FOR ARF’S SAKE AUCTION benefiting Humane Pennsylvania is an auction party freak-out, featuring amazing art created by local, regional, and national artists, as well as amazing items, antiques, and packages! There’s always a great silent auction, raffle tables, loads of great food, plus complimentary beer and wine service. Our auction brings artwork and experiences from the quirky to the sublime to our friends and supporters for an outrageous night of bidding and entertainment, and it all benefits the animals! 2020’s auction is Saturday, November 14, 2020.

Mark your calendars  for the 43rd ANNUAL WALK FOR THE ANIMALS & WALKTOBERFEST to take place on Saturday, September 12, 2020! Walk for the Animals benefits the animals and programs of Humane Pennsylvania. While walking for the animals, you’ll be helping to raise funds and awareness to improve the lives of animals and the people who love them – and having lots of fun doing it!


At the request of many supporters, we’ve transformed the Tailwagger’s Trot into the TAILWAGGER’S TRICK-OR- TREAT, a family fun fall festival with music, animal contests, and an all-around good time.
