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
Heidi Lanzendorfer first adopted from the Humane Society of Cambria County in 2014. Her wonderful Pit Mix, Mugsy, inspired her to become more involved. So, in June of 2019 she began volunteering at the shelter. A year later, she has become one of our most faithful dog walkers. Heidi walks the dogs at the shelter throughout the week, participates in Saturday morning pack walks, and takes those dogs who are in need of some extra exercise on Foster for a Day trips. She has created some deep bonds with our longer term residents, and they now look forward to their walks. It is so special for these dogs to have something to look forward to, and Heidi’s it! She also advocates for our adoptable pets at community and fundraising events. Her efforts help to recruit other great volunteers and fosters and, ultimately, find furever homes for our shelter dogs and cats. Outside of the Humane Society of Cambria County, Heidi is a licensed cosmetologist and enjoys gardening, listening to music, appreciating nature, and spending time with family. In addition to Mugsy, Heidi, is also a fur mom to another dog and three cats. Her favorite time is spent with the animals, whether it be her own or shelter animals. Every animal is unique in their own way, just like humans. And, we think you are very unique, Heidi, in your dedication to our shelter and animals. We are so very fortunate to have volunteers like you! Thank you for all 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!
