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 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 would encourage everyone to adopt, donate, advocate, and volunteer. The animals are all so worth it!”

Volunteer!

Volunteer of the Month

Heidi Lanzendorfer first adopted from the Humane Society of Cambria County in 2014. Her wonderful Pit Mix, Mugsy, inspired her to become more involved. So, in June of 2019 she began volunteering at the shelter. A year later, she has become one of our most faithful dog walkers. Heidi walks the dogs at the shelter throughout the week, participates in Saturday morning pack walks, and takes those dogs who are in need of some extra exercise on Foster for a Day trips. She has created some deep bonds with our longer term residents, and they now look forward to their walks. It is so special for these dogs to have something to look forward to, and Heidi’s it! She also advocates for our adoptable pets at community and fundraising events. Her efforts help to recruit other great volunteers and fosters and, ultimately, find furever homes for our shelter dogs and cats. Outside of the Humane Society of Cambria County, Heidi is a licensed cosmetologist and enjoys gardening, listening to music, appreciating nature, and spending time with family. In addition to Mugsy, Heidi, is also a fur mom to another dog and three cats. Her favorite time is spent with the animals, whether it be her own or shelter animals. Every animal is unique in their own way, just like humans. And, we think you are very unique, Heidi, in your dedication to our shelter and animals. We are so very fortunate to have volunteers like you! Thank you for all that you do!

We need your help!

#HSCC is a completely non-profit organization. That means we survive off of the support from people like you. Please open your heart and help provide these animals with the supplies on our wish list. The dogs and cats thank you in advance!

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 beautiful girl has been living her #HappyTails life since 2009. Jasmine, formerly Butter, was surrendered when her owner had found herself in an overwhelming situation with too many cats to care for. But, in the same day, her new mom would take her home! Her new mom made sure she never felt the stress of a shelter environment, and promised her the best day every day forward. Jasmine has recently struggled with megacolon, but, her mom has made sure she gets the proper treatment to feel better. Many of us would do anything that our fur babies need without question, and that is just what Jasmines mom does! You are one lucky girl, we are so happy for you Jasmine!
