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.
Volunteer of the Month
Since officially retiring from Westmont School District in 2016, Marie Klein has continued to give back to her community. While serving as a part time teacher through the Learning Lamp at Windber School District for the past 2 years, Marie has volunteered with numerous organizations. She came on board with the Humane Society of Cambria County in January of 2018 with the mission to help end the misconception of Pit Bulls. Having experience with Pit Bulls among her family, she looked forward to working with these dogs at the shelter. Marie spends her time helping to clean, wash dishes, and do laundry. But, her favorite volunteer activity is spoiling the dogs with treats! Adoptable pets from our shelter have become part of Marie’s family. Her son adopted 2 Pit Bull puppies. And, Marie adopted a German Shepherd Husky Mix as a friend for her senior Golden Retriever. They have become best buds and keep each other active. In addition to her dogs, Marie took in 2 stray cats as part of her furry clan. Beyond the animals, Marie enjoys volunteering at fundraisers. She assists with whatever is needed, but she really loves bragging about our adoptable animals to the public. In fact, she has a good track record in helping our animals find their furever homes! For the past 2 years, she has participated in the Halloween Parade by walking with an adoptable dog. And, she has created Christmas stockings full of toys and treats to help raise funds for the shelter. Marie is the true definition of a volunteer. She helps where help is needed. Thank you for your time and hard work! We are so happy to have you as part of our “pack” Marie!
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!
