Serving Since 1976

The Humane Society of Cambria County (HSCC) is a non-profit, incorporated organization, which holds a class NP kennel license. We operate as a No-Kill Shelter. Under our open entry policy, we accept both stray and owner-surrendered animals. This includes those that may be sick, elderly, pregnant, injured, or aggressive.

We do not place time limits or deadlines on the animals in our care. Each animal remains available for adoption as long as they are not undergoing medical treatment.

Since we were established 40 years ago, our organization has helped over 138,000 animals find forever homes.

Our Staff

The shelter staff is full of dedicated individuals who are completely committed to our mission. Please feel free to visit our shelter during our hours of operation and our staff would be happy to assist you!
