Welcome Friends!

Please Help Us Help Them!



Please bring your pets inside! If you see a pet left out in the cold please call 1-800-281-1680. The Pennsylvania State Police have issued a news release warning that criminal charges will be filed against pet owners who fail to provide their animals with sufficient shelter, food and water.   

Welcome to our website! Kitten and PuppyThe Humane Society of Cambria County is here to serve both the animals and the people of Johnstown and all of Cambria County, Pennsylvania. Our primary purpose is to place homeless companion animals into permanent, loving homes and to provide public education and awareness.

We have sheltered more than 138,000 stray, abused, and unwanted pets since we were founded in 1976 and that number continues to grow. The motto of the Humane Society is "Open Your Heart" and we invite you to
see the wonderful animals waiting for adoption into a new family.   

Along with animal adoption, the Humane Society also provides other critical services to the community. These include dog licenses, public education, spay/neuter advocacy, and animal rescue operations.

Did you know that the Humane Society of Cambria County has held a 100% adoption rate for adoptable dogs since November of 2011?  In 2012 the Humane Society of Cambria County had 474 adoptable dogs enter the shelter.  Of those, 365 were adopted into new, loving homes; 98 were lost dogs that were reunited with their owners; and 11 dogs were held over into 2013 and eventually adopted into new, loving homes! 

Cat overpopulation still continues to be a problem.  However, we are currently at an 85% adoption rate for adoptable cats which is much higher than in previous years.  We just need to keep spreading the word about spaying and neutering your pets and keeping ID on them at all times! 

Please help us keep up this wonderful progress by supporting the Humane Society of Cambria County!  Thank you!
