The volunteers who assist the Humane Society of Cambria County take on a variety of roles and their time and effort is truly appreciated. Without them, our shelter would not be able to provide the best service and care possible to our animals and visitors from the community. The reward gained from caring for shelter animals is only outdone when an animal finds a new and loving furever home!

There are many ways you can be a volunteer. From dog walking and cat cuddling, to doing dishes and yard maintenance, we will always appreciate a helping hand. Volunteers are also needed off-site at special events and serving in our committees.

Download and complete the application below and submit it to our shelter. Thanks for wanting to help out!

Volunteers under 18 years of age must have consent from their parents or guardians and will not be able to handle any of the dogs. Volunteers 16 years and older may handle cats. Volunteers 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
