We are looking for volunteers to walk dogs, cat cuddle or to help with general housekeeping at the shelter. Volunteering at our shelter is very rewarding! Our animals love the attention, and the socialization provided by volunteers helps get them adopted more quickly. Dog walkers must be at least 18 years old and able to handle energetic dogs. If you have a few free hours each week, please give us a call at 814-443-2121.

We would like to give a HUGE shout out to Maust Excavating for donating their time and materials to fill in and smooth out our very bumpy, pot hole ridden driveway. Your staff did an amazing job and were very friendly and courteous. THANK YOU!
