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!

“Even a little bit of time makes a difference for the animals.”

Volunteer of the Month

Alyssa Averi began volunteering at the Humane Society of Cambria County in May of this year. While accompanying her family to adopt a kitten, a socially anxious cat caught her attention as the cat paced back and forth in her kennel. Alyssa decided at that moment that she wanted to get more involved to make a difference for this specific shelter resident and others just like her. She felt that she could relate to these animals and give them the time that they needed as she personally struggles with anxiety herself. So, she did just that. Alyssa has become a dedicated volunteer in our cat room, giving her time and attention to the ones who need it most. And, in August of this year, the cat that inspired Alyssa to volunteer found her home! Outside of the shelter, she works, sketches, games, and listens to music. She is also a proud fur mom of her Chihuahua, Mini. Alyssa has a way with all of our shelter cats, but especially with the less socialized ones. She approaches them in a manner that allows them to open up to people, ultimately, helping them to become more adoptable. Our cats are so very lucky to have such a compassionate individual spending time with them. They look forward to each and every volunteer shift with Alyssa because they know that they can simply be themselves. Thank you, Alyssa, for the difference you make!

Our little landshark, Leroy, came into our shelter with some mouthy issues. It was apparent that this 10 month old boy clearly missed some vital training as a puppy. But, it wasnt too late! He found a fur dad and mom who saw his issues, and wanted to help him correct his issues. And, that makes for one special adoption! #TellTheirStory 

Leroy has now been living the second chance life for a month, and we are so happy for him! Thank you to Capri Pizza for sponsoring Leroys adoption fee to help him find his home. Heres to furever!Image attachment
