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 Kumi! I am in search of an experienced dog owner to make my new loyal companion! It may take me a little bit to warm up to a new person, but once I do I’ll be your best friend! I am a 7 year old Pit Bull Terrier, spayed, and up to date on vaccinations. I am a smart girl who knows way more than sit. I even know paw and roll over. I am ready for my second chance!

Volunteer of the Month

Lexi Nulton has returned to volunteer with the Humane Society of Cambria County after six years, and has now been making a difference for our shelter animals for the past two years. She loved her experience volunteering with our shelter during her years of college, and returned with intentions to walk our dogs. But, in all of her years volunteering, Lexi has learned that operating an animal shelter requires much hard work. Knowing this, she has expanded to help in any way that she can. Lexi dedicates her time to walking our dogs, playing with our cats, and assisting at community and fundraising events. Even more than that, she has taken on the task of transporting adoptable dogs to visit with residents of Cambria Care Center on a regular basis. Not only does this good deed bring joy to the residents and staff at the nursing center, but also it brings fun and excitement to our shelter dogs. As she persists to help in all aspects of volunteering, Lexi’s favorite volunteer activity has become our Foster for a Day Program. Through the Foster for a Day Program, she gets the chance to know our dogs outside of the shelter environment. She often takes our dogs for a walk in the woods or to play at the park, but the favorite activity of most dogs seems to be cuddling up on the couch for a nap. At home, Lexi has two dogs of her own. She adopted Izzy, a Pit Bill mix, from the Humane Society of Cambria County after fostering her. And, she rescued Teddy, a Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher mix with the mindset of a Pit Bull. She is a graduate of UPJ with a degree in Advertising and Public Relations, and, at this time, she is a stay-at-home mom. Lexi loves being able to spend time with her daughter, husband, and their families. We are fortunate that she also loves to spend her time with our shelter animals. Our shelter dogs, especially, look forward to the fun adventures that await them when she comes to volunteer. We are so grateful for volunteers like you! You have positively impacted the lives of animals in need, and for that, we thank you Lexi!

Our hearts are so full! Long term residents, Mercury and Robin, have started their journey to furever, on the same day! We were in disbelief to see Mercury sit on her new moms lap and take pets so nicely and to see Robins new mom and dad return after she had bit them through the kennel a few weeks prior. These animals pick their people! Thank you so very much to all adopters for opening their hearts and homes to these very deserving cats!Image attachment
