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 Shy Shy! I am just 1 year old, spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. I am considered special needs as I have tested positive for Feline Leukemia. Because of this, I am looking for a special home that can be my own home or a home with other Feline Leukemia Positive cats. My story started out sad when I was brought into the shelter as a new momma cat with kittens. Unfortunately, my babies could not overcome Feline Leukemia. But, now, I am ready for my second chance and hapy ending!

Volunteer of the Month

Pat Zimmerman started volunteering with the Humane Society of Cambria County a few years ago when she didn’t have any pets at home and needed her “pet fix.” She quickly took to the animals and fell in love with the volunteer experience. Now, Pat, has developed her weekly routine of visiting with the cats and kittens in our adoption room. During her visits, she spends extra time with the ones that are in need of some extra attention like the seniors who have suddenly lost their homes and are now in a kennel. And, she socializes with the cats and kittens who are shy and she brushes the cats and kittens who are not properly grooming themselves for one reason or another. Also, Pat talks to the public visiting the adoptable cat room about the adoptable cats and kittens and she helps those who are interested in adopting to learn more about the available cats and kittens. In November of 2020, it was Pat’s turn to adopt and add a furry friend to her pet-less home. She adopted Charlie. Charlie entered our shelter as a skittish kitten and she was often overlooked. It wasn’t long before Charlie was growing into an adult cat, lessening her chances of being adopted. But, Pat saw something in Charlie as she continued to socialize with her during her weekly visits to the shelter. Charlie has now grown more comfortable and confident in her new home. She has become Pat’s best bud. Outside of the shelter and being Charlie’s mom, Pat is retired and spends her time doing yard work, quilting with a church group, sewing, and reading. Pat volunteers for all the right reasons, for the animals! She recognizes that our shelter animals are just in need of love. And, we are so thankful that she is willing to share that love with them! Our cats and kittens are fortunate to have someone so special to spend every Tuesday afternoon with. Thank you, Pat, for the difference you make!
