Our Mission

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.

Our Pet in the Spotlight

My name is Bruce! I am in search of an experienced dog owner to make my new loyal best friend! I am a 2 year old Pit Bull Terrier and Lab Mix, neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. I am a very smart and determined dog. I would greatly benefit from an active family who can work to stimulate me both physically and mentally. Could I be your new fur companion?

“You become a part of these shelter animals’ lives. And, when you no longer see a certain dog or cat, you know they found a loving home. That’s the reward!”

Volunteer of the Month

After adopting their family dog, Buddy, from the Humane Society of Cambria County, Jamie Crum decided she wanted to give back to the shelter, and she has now been volunteering with the shelter for 7 years. As a part time photographer, Jamie has naturally assumed the role of volunteer shelter photographer. She has captured thousands of images over the years. From photographing pets with Santa and the Easter Bunny to offering Spring and Fall mini sessions for families and their fur babies to showcasing the adoptable animals at the shelter, Jamie has truly done it all. Her photo session fundraisers are some of the most successful and well attended events every year! She spends countless hours setting up the perfect backdrop, photographing the pets and sometimes their owners, and editing and delivering the finished product. In addition to her photo session fundraisers, Jamie volunteers her time to photograph the adoptable animals of the shelter. She enjoys being able to showcase our dogs, cats, bunnies, ferrets, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, and birds in a different light. She spends a little time getting to know each animal so she may capture their personality. As a mom of two adopted dogs and an adopted cat, Jamie knows that each animal comes from a different background with a different story to tell. She illustrates this through her photography to give each animal a better chance to find a home. Jamie advocates for our shelter animals and encourages others to adopt. She explains that regardless of their past, a family full of patience, love, and understanding is what they need in their future. Jamie currently serves on the Humane Society of Cambria County’s Board of Directors and actively assists with shelter fundraisers too. Outside of the shelter, Jamie is a 7th grade English teacher at Windber Middle School. Here she has started and maintained The Angel Project for 15 years. The Angel Project helps students who are in need of new shoes, winter coats, food, and more. She enjoys spending time with her family, traveling to the beach, and hanging around a fire with friends. Most importantly, Jamie enjoys helping those in need! Our animals are so fortunate to have such a kind soul in their corner, and so lucky to have been blessed with the selflessness of a volunteer like you! We thank you Jamie for helping to find our shelter animals their furever homes and for all that you do!
