of Cambria County
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
After a weekend of volunteering at the Humane Society of Cambria County with the Johnstown Running Club, Joshua McCloskey has been back every Saturday as part of our Pack Walk Program. Josh is a software developer and a fur dad to his dogs, Duke and Bailey, and his cats, Skye and Jack, adopted from the Humane Society of Cambria County. He also enjoys running, going to the gym, paddle boarding, and practicing Jiu Jitsu. Now a year and a half later, Josh has become one of our seasoned dog walkers. He brings his active lifestyle to our dogs at the shelter, and helps them to release their built up energy. This release is so very important, especially for our long term residents. Josh enjoys his time spent with our dogs outside of the kennel because this is when their true personalities show. One dog in particular has greatly benefited from the special attention of Josh. Our wild boy Bruce looks forward to his weekly runs with Josh. Bruce can often be found jumping, spinning, or barking in his kennel – all signs of stress. While many visitors and dog walkers shy away from Bruce’s hyper demeanor, Josh embraces him. He gears Bruce up every week and joins the Pack Walk where they walk, run, and bond with one another. Josh gives Bruce the outlet he needs to rest better in his kennel and, ultimately, show better to potential adopters. Bruce is one of a kind, and Josh can see it. He truly cares for Bruce and all of our dogs! He aims to leave them each week a little more tired and a lot more happy! We thank you Josh for your commitment, you truly make an impact on the lives of our shelter dogs!
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!
