“Since we often don’t have any puppies under 6 months available for adoption, we have one
Opportunity to make a difference, ”said Executive Director Jessica Vamos in a press release.
Staff will follow the Humane Society of Cambria County’s standard puppy adoption process for these new furry friends. A limited number of applications are available immediately and will be processed upon receipt. Approved applicants will be contacted to schedule an appointment to meet with the available pups.
Puppies won’t be visible to the public yet, but updates on transportation can be found on the Humane Society’s Facebook page.
“We are able to alleviate the overpopulation in Texas, give our adoptive parents what they were looking for, and literally save the lives of these pups,” Vamos continued.
