The Humane Society of Cambria County strives to provide humane and ethical animal control services.
HSCC Animal Control
All of the HSCC staff is trained to be on duty for Animal Control. This is a 24/7 on-call service for contracted areas within Cambria county. Animal Control helps locate and rescue domesticated (dogs & cats) animals within these contracted areas. The goal of Animal Control is to serve our community, keep animals safe, and return pets to their owners.
Animals captured by our animal control officers will be relocated to the shelter. Intake of an animal shall be at the discretion of the HSCC when shelter space is available. If no space is available, an Animal Control officer can still assist in scanning the animal for a microchip, providing food, and other resources.
In an attempt to reunite all animals with their owners, they will be checked for tags, licenses, and microchips – if none are located – animals will be held for 72 hours. If an owner does not come forward, the animal will be placed for adoption.
How to Help

Reclaiming Lost Pets
All owners will be required to provide proof of ownership to reclaim their animal.
HSCC reserves the right to request multiple forms of ownership if evidence is weak or misleading on the provided paper work. Photos are NOT accepted as sole proof of ownership, but do help instances where multiple forms of ownership is requested.
