Penny and Precious were brought in to the shelter as strays. The people who found them were kind enough to take them to the vet and they are now up-to-date on shots. Penny has had a previous fracture to her front right leg which had begun to heal before it was set and the vet said she will always limp. They were good with cats and children. Penny is good with some dogs but not others so a "meet and greet" with your dog is recommended. These dogs are bonded to one another. Penny is a three year old Pit Bull mix.

About Somerset County Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

We are animal lovers. We hate the idea of putting an animal down -- for any reason. However, unlike other shelters, we take-in all animals -- including abused and medically neglected animals. There are times when an animal is simply so vicious that we can not responsibly adopt the pet to a family. We have, at other times, been told by our veterinarian, that it is not humane to extend the life of a very sick animal.
We make every effort to find homes for every animal in our care.When our shelter is over-crowded, we rely on a network of "foster families" to take care of our pets. All the while, we have increased our efforts to "get the word out" about our pets (e.g. this website, pictures, newspaper publicity, etc.) Our efforts pay off.
The Staff and Board of Directors at the Humane Society love pets, and our actions bear out that simple fact. Our animal guests get the very best care while they are with us.
Please help! We need volunteers to help us exercise the dogs. We try to walk the dogs each day to provide them with the exercise and attention they so desperately need. You can volunteer as little or as much as you like. If you would be interested in helping us care for our animal guests, please call the shelter at 814-443-2121.
