My story

Hi there, My name is Harry. I am a 6 year old guy who was brought in to the shelter sick and in need of help. Staff and the vet worked to help me feel my best, and now that I am feeling better, I am ready for my very own home. I will need a home without young children as I can be a bit opinionated and prefer things to be on my terms. I can be a very sweet guy and I love treats and head scratches but I do have times that I prefer my space. I was found to be FIV positive, so I cannot live with other cats unless they are FIV+ as well. I was also found to be Diabetic, so I will need to have continued vet care as I am currently receiving Insulin injections twice a day. I'm a champ for meds though! I have not been tested with dogs. If you think you have the right home for me, please stop in and ask about me!

Additional adoption info

We do not work on a first come, first served basis for our animals. We look for the best match between the animal and the family/person looking to adopt. We also will foster adoptable animals in homes in certain cases to make sure that animal is a good fit in that home prior to completing an adoption.

Adoption application

You can meet our adoptable animals at our shelter, 1837 E Pleasant Valley Boulevard, Altoona on Tuesdays to Sundays from 12.30 - 4.30pm with extended hours to 7pm on Fridays. We are closed on Monday. We also have adoption events at our local Petco stores which we feature on our Facebook page.

More about this shelter

The Central PA Humane Society (CPHS) was established in 1964. We are a non profit 501c3 who receives no government or national rescue organization funding. We survive solely on grants we apply for, our fundraisers we put on and donations from our community. We are a 'life saving' shelter and only ever euthanize animals that are deemed dangerous to our staff and volunteers. This is after we have tried training, foster homes etc to give that animal every chance at a life outside of the shelter. We do euthanize animal that have life threatening injuries or illness that cannot be medically treated by a veterinarian.

CPHS has a dedicated team of staff and volunteers that cater to every animal in their care. We have enrichment programs for both dogs and cats to enable their time with us to be enjoyable and less stressful. We are very proud of our canine cardio and foster for the day programs than allow dogs to leave our facility and get some time out being walked or simply chilling out in someones home.

Our fundraisers are hugely popular in the community with events such as; Chili Fest, Bikers for Barkers, Paws in the Park, Fur Ball, Chocoholics Night out, Mimosas on the Lake to name a few! These fundraisers are instrumental in helping us look after the nearly 1,800 animals that come through our doors.
