Only 20% of American pets were adopted from shelters.
Consider adopting your next pet from one of these local shelters:

Huntingdon County Humane Society

Central PA Humane Society

Clearfield County SPCA

Rescue groups foster or board pets for as much time as is needed
until the pet finds a forever home. Rescue groups often pull animals
from shelters when there is no more space at shelters. Rescues are
another wonderful place to adopt your new best friend.
Check out these rescue groups in PA:

Furry Friends Network

Animal House & Company

Pawprints Dog Sanctuary

Rescue our Furry Friends

Brookline Lab Rescue

Canine Rescue of Central PA


Meet Belle, our first investment in time and energy as an organization. Belle, a sweet and gentle dog, spent several weeks of her life in an animal shelter. She had been returned once and no new adoption prospects were on the horizon. Then a rescue group offered to take Belle in, and thanks to your support, we were able to transport her to a foster family. The family was so taken by Belle, that they immediately adopted her. Belle lived a good life with her family, complete with rhinestone-studded collars, a fenced-in yard, and children to cuddle with every night. She recently passed away unexpectedly due to cancer. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, but we are grateful that she was able to spend the last few months of her life in a place that she was comfortable and well cared-for.


Who's that busy little bee? It's Carmel, and she's all dressed up in time for her first Halloween! Carmel was adopted after several months of shelter life. Now she's enjoying her daily neighborhood walks, squeaky toys and general pampering from mom and dad. Way to go, Carmel!


We've been busy visiting elementary schools to present animal welfare topics to school children in our area. Recently, we spoke to a group of students about how to safely approach an animal and myths/opinions about animals.


They've done it! Our favorite beagles, Redds and Hammer, have found a home....TOGETHER! They have come a long way from the hot July day when they were brought to the shelter in the bed of a truck, sitting tightly in makeshift chicken-wire crates in the scorching heat. Redds and Hammer have never known what it's like to live in a house, since their former "family" kept them outside. Now, this father and son canine duo are learning to live INSIDE, where they can be part of their new family. Oh, and did we mention that have a fenced in yard to romp and play together in?


In September we had a booth at Woofstock in Harrisburg, an all-day, dog-centered event. We brought shelter dogs (from left-right) Sydney, Rusty, and Maisy along for the day. They enjoyed attention from visitors to our booth and met lots of other dog friends. We wish Sydney, Rusty, and Maisy the best of luck in their new homes....they are all very special dogs!
