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?

“I have encouraged my friends to volunteer or even just visit the shelter because it’s such a rewarding experience!”


Volunteer of the Month

As a part time student at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, Victoria Garcia was looking for more ways to give back to the community. And, since September, she has been giving back to the homeless animals of Cambria County by volunteering with the Humane Society of Cambria County. Victoria has a busy schedule as a full time student and a part time employee, yet she still finds time for our shelter animals. She spends her time cuddling and socializing our cats. While doing this, she enjoys the connections she makes with the cats who are waiting for their furever home. And, the cats appreciate the attention too! It makes their time at the shelter even better. Victoria has made a special connection with Hammer, a young adult cat, and Kali, a senior cat with thyroid complications. Both cats have since been adopted by their furever family! Victoria has a cat named Smokey and a ferret named Pepper of her own. Outside of all of her commitments, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. One day, she plans to attend veterinarian school so she can continue to make a difference in the lives of animals. Victoria’s passion for animals is obvious! And, our animals are so lucky to have the care of such a wonderful volunteer! We thank you, Victoria, for all of the love and affection you provide the shelter cats while they await their furever home!
