Our Pet in the Spotlight

My name is Bruce! I am in search of an experienced dog owner to make my new loyal best friend! I am a 2 year old Pit Bull Terrier and Lab Mix, neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. I am a very smart and determined dog. I would greatly benefit from an active family who can work to stimulate me both physically and mentally. Could I be your new fur companion?

“It is so rewarding to work with an animal who is shy, nervous, afraid, or perceived as ‘mean or aggressive’ and have them trust you enough to come out of their shells and let their true personalities shine!”


Volunteer of the Month

Julia Mostoller made the decision to start volunteering with the Humane Society of Cambria County in September of 2020 because of her love for animals and her hope to make a difference for the animals of her community. Joel Barton was a little cautious to start volunteering, but with the convincing of Julia, he decided to try it out. Now, they both love coming to spend time with our shelter animals! Joel and Julia are instrumental in socializing our adoptable animals! They spend their volunteer hours getting as many cats and kittens out of their kennels as they can. Our cats and kittens can be found romping through our adoption room with one another while Joel and Julia join in the fun by playing and cuddling them. They also spend their time with our adoptable dogs in the play yards as well as out on Foster for a Day Trips. Our dogs look forward to the time spent outside of their kennel. Joel and Julia are so great at giving each animal the opportunity to simply “be a cat” for the day or to simply “be a dog” for the day! In doing this, they allow the personalities of our animals to shine through, which helps us to know them better. Outside of the shelter, Julia is pursuing her Masters Degree in Strength and Conditioning at IUP as well as working as an Exercise Physiologist at Conemaugh Valley PT Clinic & Fitness Center and Joel is pursuing his Degree in Computer Systems Management with Cybersecurity at St. Francis University as well as working as a Computer Technician at Inshore Technologies. In their free time, Joel and Julia enjoy powerlifting and body building at 56 Warehouse Gym together. Separately, Julia enjoys horseback riding and playing her piano while Joel enjoys playing volleyball and gaming. Both have grown up with pets, but together they currently do not own any pets. Julia’s family has four cats and Joel’s family has a cat and a dog. They look forward to owning their own home and adopting pets of their own one day. We know that, in the future, they will make a great furever home for some of our adoptable animals, but for now, Joel and Julia will continue to make a difference in the lives of the cats and dogs awaiting their second chance! Our animals look forward to visits from the two of you, because they know that it means a little break from their kennel and a lot of love and attention for them! Thank you Joel and Julia for all that you do!
