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.

Available Pets

Our Pet in the Spotlight

My name is Mindy! I am 3 years old, spayed, and up to date on vaccines. I have tested positive for Feline Leukemia, and am in need of a very special owner. I am an affectionate cat, and have spent over a year here at the shelter. Can you believe it? I will do well with dogs, other pets, and children. However, I must be the only cat in the home due to my Feline Leukemia. Or, I may live with other Feline Leukemia positive cats. Special needs cat just means extra special, right? I’m ready to go home!

“Being a part of finding loving homes for these animals is the best part of being a volunteer!”

Volunteer of the Month

Since officially retiring from Westmont School District in 2016, Marie Klein has continued to give back to her community. While serving as a part time teacher through the Learning Lamp at Windber School District for the past 2 years, Marie has volunteered with numerous organizations. She came on board with the Humane Society of Cambria County in January of 2018 with the mission to help end the misconception of Pit Bulls. Having experience with Pit Bulls among her family, she looked forward to working with these dogs at the shelter. Marie spends her time helping to clean, wash dishes, and do laundry. But, her favorite volunteer activity is spoiling the dogs with treats! Adoptable pets from our shelter have become part of Marie’s family. Her son adopted 2 Pit Bull puppies. And, Marie adopted a German Shepherd Husky Mix as a friend for her senior Golden Retriever. They have become best buds and keep each other active. In addition to her dogs, Marie took in 2 stray cats as part of her furry clan. Beyond the animals, Marie enjoys volunteering at fundraisers. She assists with whatever is needed, but she really loves bragging about our adoptable animals to the public. In fact, she has a good track record in helping our animals find their furever homes! For the past 2 years, she has participated in the Halloween Parade by walking with an adoptable dog. And, she has created Christmas stockings full of toys and treats to help raise funds for the shelter. Marie is the true definition of a volunteer. She helps where help is needed. Thank you for your time and hard work! We are so happy to have you as part of our “pack” Marie!

This is one of those #HappyTails updates that bring happy tears to our eyes!

We adopted Teddy a little over a year ago! (See the pictures to follow the story!) He quickly became the love of our lives (and the cat’s lol)! Even for being 13 he is still full of energy, loves walks and anything outside, and even got a new little brother from Bedford Humane Society! Louie keeps him young and they are pretty good buddies! Looking back, Teddy was definitely the best decision we ever made!

We are so grateful that Teddy's life has been turned around, and this senior boy is surely living the best days of his #HappyTails!
