Public Notice – March 15, 2022

The Humane Society of Cambria County is relieved to announce that the dog, witnessed being violently struck by its owner in the Ring Neighbors video, has been removed from the home and the owner will now face legal ramifications. The dog has been transported to the shelter, where it will be assessed for any injuries, cared for, and kept safe.

We are greatly appreciative of the person who spoke up and brought this incident to the proper authorities, to the community who actively sought needed information to help the dog, and to the Johnstown Police Department for a thorough investigation and acting on this case immediately.

We are outraged by the behavior witnessed in this video. We encourage any individual who observes animal abuse or neglect to make a report with the proper authorities. You are a voice for the voiceless.

The dog will be held throughout any upcoming legal proceedings, and will not be viewable to the public during this time. Please continue to follow our website for all updates in regards to this case: https://www.cambriacountyhumanesociety.com/blog/.
