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?

“The goal for all shelter animals is the same, regardless of their breed. Find their furever home!”

Volunteer!

Volunteer of the Month

As a new resident of Johnstown amidst the height of Covid-19, Oswaldo Valenzuela was searching for a meaningful way to give back to his new community. Since volunteering with the Humane Society of Cambria County for 7 months now, he has found a way to make a difference and enjoys doing so! Outside of the shelter, Ozzy serves as an Active Duty Marine, attends school part time,  and spends his time at the gym or at home working on remodeling projects. At home he has two dogs of his own, Charlie and Sammy. Charlie is a German Shepherd Beagle Mix and Sammy is a German Shepherd Blue Heeler Mix. Ozzy naturally took to our shelter dogs, and he looks forward to walking them. He loves the way each dog’s face lights up when they realize that they are going for a walk. While sometimes he is only able to provide each dog with a 30 to 40 minute walk, Ozzy knows that each dog finds comfort during that time and that is what makes volunteering worth it! Our dogs are so grateful to have people who go beyond their basic needs and to have people who make sure they feel comforted each and every day. Ozzy recognizes that many of our shelter dogs are discriminated against just because of their breed. And, he looks past the “bad reputation” that has been assigned to these dogs by society because each dog deserves to be approached with an open mind with the same goal, to find a furever home! He hopes in doing this that he helps our shelter dogs become more adoptable. And, while Ozzy expressed to us that he was honored to be recognized as Volunteer of the Month, we are extremely honored to have such a dedicated and passionate volunteer. He volunteers for all the right reasons, and truly makes a difference in the life of each and every shelter dog while they await their furever home! Thank you Ozzy for all that you do!

We are so excited for our Simon! Being Feline Leukemia Positive made his search for a furever home more challenging. But, one thing we knew to be true was that this boy was Feline Leukemia Positive-ly Adoptable! His mom knew it to be true too. She has a soft spot for the animals most in need, and she was so happy to be able to give Simon everything he needed! We are so happy for you Simon and your new mom! There are second chances out there for those even with special needs. #TellTheirStory
