COVID-19 UPDATE- "Yellow Phase"
As Somerset moves into the "yellow" phase regarding COVID 19, we would like to share what our protocol will be here at HSSC. 

We will continue conducting adoptions outside and by appointment only (please call for available appointment times)

We are asking that visitors please wear a mask. 

We are opening adoptions to all counties that are also in yellow. 

We are going to be open to volunteers and ask that you call to schedule a time before coming. 

We are asking all volunteers to please wear a mask when you are inside the shelter. 

If you are sick or feel that you may have been exposed, please do not come to the shelter. We appreciate your cooperation during this time and are trying to stay in cooperation with the CDC guidelines while trying to find homes and give the best of care to our animals. Thank You 

UPDATE Due to COVID-19, we are requiring anyone coming to the shelter for an adoption appointment to wear a mask. Thank you for your understanding 

The Humane Society of Somerset County will be closing to the public starting March 18, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.  

Our humane officer will continue to respond to calls.

All of our animals that are available for adoption can be found at

If you are interested in adopting you can find an application on our website and submit it via email to or by fax it to 814-443-2118.  We can schedule a meet and greet for you to come and meet the animal if your application is approved. 

Staff will be available by telephone to answer questions regarding our animals or policies at 814-443-2121.  Our staff is often busy caring for our animals or answering other calls so if you reach voicemail, please leave us a message and we will get a return call to you as soon as possible. 

Additionally, please note that our upcoming Rabies Clinics throughout Somerset County are being cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later time.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding. We will post any updates to our website and facebook.

Volunteers Needed

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.
