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!

“Spending time with the dogs is so heartwarming and rewarding. Spending time with the other volunteers and staff is so much fun too!”


Volunteer of the Month

Cameron and Catherine Neuts began volunteering at the Humane Society of Cambria County in 2018 when their universities required community service hours as part of the curriculum. After all, the two of them were passionate about animals and knew our shelter would be a good fit to complete their obligatory hours. They loved their volunteer experience so much, that both Cameron and Catherine decided to continue volunteering after graduating, and they still volunteer today. Cameron and Catherine devote their spare time to helping our shelter dogs to get adopted either out in the community or at adoption and fundraising events.  Their favorite volunteer program is our Foster for a Day Program where they are able to sign a dog out of the shelter for a few hours or for the day. They often take adoptable dogs to Lowes or Home Depot, to the park, or to local hiking trails. And, they even spoil our dogs by treating them to ice cream. On their “field trips,” our shelter dogs are able to decompress from the every day stress of the kennel, to reveal their true personalities and sweet natures, and to just be a dog!  Because of this, many of our shelter dogs have had the opportunity to meet their furever families. Cameron and Catherine are too familiar with the harsh reality that at a shelter, dogs have the potential to not show well within their kennel to visitors. And, because of this, these dogs are often overlooked. Their very own dog, Reeses, spent three years in a kennel for that very reason at a shelter in New York before Cameron and Catherine adopted her. She is now loved and spoiled along with her other fur siblings which includes two dogs adopted from the Humane Society of Cambria County and two Chihuahuas. Outside of the shelter and their 5 dogs, Cameron and Catherine work from home and own their own business. Volunteering has also provided a social aspect to their at home lifestyle. The two of them have made many friends through volunteering. Cameron and Catherine make a difference in not only the lives of our animals but in the lives of the people that they touch whether that is volunteering alongside them at a fundraiser or helping them to find a new furry companion. We are so grateful for volunteers like you and everything you do! Thank you, Cameron and Catherine!
