of Cambria County
The Humane Society of Cambria County aims to provide a second chance for the abandoned, surrendered, and stray animals of Cambria County through the means of a no-kill philosophy and quality of life policy, our volunteer and foster programs, animal control services, a spay and neuter requirement, our veterinarian relationships, animal training assistance, a vetted adoption process, responsible pet ownership, and, most importantly, the human-and-animal bond.
Volunteer of the Month
Monica Horrell was motivated to volunteer with the Humane Society of Cambria County after learning about the positive experiences of a close friend. And, without hesitation, she dove right in! Where help is needed, you can find Monica. Whether that be cleaning cat kennels, walking dogs, or assisting at community events, she is there. Most recently, she assisted to fulfill requests for our monthly Pet Food Pantry. While Monica is ready and willing to help in all aspects of volunteering, she really enjoys walking our shelter dogs. She finds it to be stress relieving. As if all of her hands on help isn’t enough at the shelter, Monica has also fostered animals in need. And, she has “foster failed.” She now has a senior cat named Sylvia and she adores her. Outside of the shelter, Monica is a hairstylist and a tax preparer during tax season. She also enjoys exploring our town and partaking in the activities going on. And, as an active volunteer of our shelter, she can now add an adoptable furry friend to her adventures. Our shelter animals are so lucky to have such a willing volunteer like Monica. They can count on her for whatever they need. She finds herself so fulfilled by the work she gets to do, and we know she leaves each and every animal fulfilled after volunteering. Monica now encourages others to volunteer at the shelter, hoping she will be their motivation to submit their volunteer application. She explains to people that “you may give as much time or as little time, but any time makes a difference.” Monica, your time makes a huge difference at our shelter, and we thank you for everything that you do!
We need your help!
#HSCC is a completely non-profit organization. That means we survive off of the support from people like you. Please open your heart and help provide these animals with the supplies on our wish list. The dogs and cats thank you in advance!
