Adopting Through CPHS

Animals are available for adoption to residents living within the adoption area of the CPHS, including Blair, Bedford, Huntingdon, Cambria, Somerset, Centre, and Clearfield counties. Special exceptions can be made for out-of-area adoptions, but CPHS maintains the right to require a home visit, be it by our Humane Officer or another representative of the shelter. While adoptions are not done on a first come, first serve basis, we do not hold animals for viewing.

Please keep in mind that there is no such thing as the “Perfect Pet.” Any adopted animal will require training, patience, and ample time to adjust to their new environment. While we carefully monitor animals surrendered to CPHS, we often have limited knowledge of their backgrounds. We cannot guarantee the health, behavior, age, gender, or breed of any animal adopted from the shelter.

CPHS Adoption Packages

Our base adoption fee for all dogs is $90; for cats, the base fee is $30. This base fee covers required vaccinations, shelter ID tags, a microchip, deworming, and, for cats, crucial disease screenings. The base adoption fee is applicable to dogs and cats who come into CPHS’s care already spayed or neutered.

If a dog or cat is not spayed or neutered, the adoption fee is increased to reflect the cost of the surgery. For dogs and puppies, the adoption fee is $180. Cats and kittens who come to us unaltered are $80. If your kitten or puppy is adopted before their spay or neuter surgery, you have the option of having your own vet perform the procedure. A deposit of $90 for dogs and $50 for cats is required. This deposit is refundable with the presentation of a spay or neuter certificate issued by your veterinarian.

Other Adoption Options

Small Animals

CPHS often takes in a variety of small animals, including but not limited to rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds. If you are interested in adopting a small animal but do not see one on our Petfinder account, please call and asked to be placed on our breed specific list. We will give you a call when the animal you are looking for comes in.

Senior to Senior Program

Senior citizens receive half off adoption fees for any senior animal.
