Humane Pennsylvania relies entirely on donations and services fees from the community.

We try to make giving easy and fun by having awesome special fundraising events in local communities. We understand you want to support the work we do for the animals in care, but we also know that no one likes going to a boring event!

Below you will find our upcoming event list, and some of them are even pet-friendly! All of these events offer the chance to do good and have some fun all at the same time.

mini Pints for Pups – April through October

Humane Pennsylvania’s mini Pints for Pups has been a crowd favorite for animal lovers throughout Berks and Lancaster counties since 2018! Humane PA partners with local breweries and wineries to bring you a series of dates where you can enjoy tasty brews and delicious bites with your best four-legged friend, all while supporting the animals in need! We’ll have plenty of fun for you, including yard games, HPA merchandise, and awesome raffle prizes! $1.00 from every drink sold during the event will go directly toward the animals in our care.

Our mini Pints series takes place every year from April to October at various locations. All mini Pints dates are outdoors and leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Art for Arf’s Sake – Saturday, November 11th

Passengers, this is Tilly, your captain speaking, please take your seats as we prepare for take-off to our final destination, set for Humane Pennsylvania’s annual Art for Arf’s Sake Auction!

On Saturday, November 11th, 2023, at our very own Freedom Center for Animal Life-Saving in Reading, PA, get ready to explore the world through art and experiences.

By supporting Art for Arf’s Sake, you allow the staff at Humane Pennsylvania to continue caring for tens of thousands of animals both in our shelters and in the community. Please remember, Humane Pennsylvania does not receive funding from the federal, state, or local governments or national interest groups like the HSUS and ASPCA. Humane PA relies on supporters like you to save the animals, and the Auction is a fun way to help them do so!
