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 Lee! I am 8 years old and was brought into the shelter as a stray. I have been neutered, I’m up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Happy go lucky is my personality! I have elevated kidney levels that my shelter family has been able to maintain with some routine veterinary care. The kennel at the shelter is no place for me, please take me home!

Volunteer of the Month

Bobby Rowe II joined our shelter family as a junior in high school, and has been regularly volunteering with the Humane Society of Cambria County for six years now. In his time with us, he has enjoyed dedicating his efforts to our dogs, cats, and exotic animals, especially rabbits, educating the public on adoption, and assisting at community events. As well, Bobby has shared our wish list of needed items like non-clumping cat litter, Purina ONE Dog Food, Purina Cat Chow, etc. in hopes of bringing awareness to the needs of the shelter. He has even collected these items for his birthday to donate to the animals. Outside of the shelter, Bobby works at Laurelview Village and cares for Leo, his 12 year old Jack Russell and Wire Fox Terrier Mix. His family adopted Leo two years ago and loves him dearly! This is not the first time Bobby has adopted from the Humane Society of Cambria County. His family cared for Bailey, a Beagle and Terrier Mix, for six years before she crossed the rainbow bridge. Most recently, Bobby has adopted a horse into his family and named her Angel. He spends a lot of time with her to make sure she is taken care of and exercised. Our shelter animals are so lucky that Bobby’s love for all furry friends extends beyond Leo, Bailey, and Angel to all of our dogs, cats, rabbits, and more. They know that when they see him coming that means they are going to have some fun play time or cuddle time. And, as they watch Bobby leave for the day with a smile on his face, they smile back. Thank you Bobby for touching the lives of so many shelter animals as they patiently wait for their furever home!

Ways To Give

We appreciate all contributions from the community, however, our ability to care for our animals comes solely from donations, fundraising, grants, and memberships. It is with your support we are able to care for nearly 2,000 animals in Cambria County annually.

This #HappyTails update brought happy tears to our eyes: "We adopted Tank in July 2018. He’s turned into such an amazing dog. His personality has really shown in the last year and a half. He’s so sweet and loves to be loved. My husband deployed at the end of 2018 and if it wasn’t for Tank I would’ve been a wreck the whole time. He never fails to put a smile on the face of everyone he meets. His favorite things are napping on the couch, camping and making new friends. We couldn’t ask for a more amazing best friend! ❤️"
