Thursday February 15th. Baltimore, MD.

We are pleased to share that Central Pennsylvania Humane Society will be Puppie Love's next donation recipient of $5000! Central Pennsylvania Humane Society (CPHS) has been operating in Altoona, PA since since 1895, providing a safe haven for animals searching for their forever homes and meeting the needs of their community for many years. There are no time limits for animals in their shelter. Animals may remain available for adoption at CPHS as long as they are physically and mentally healthy. They have provided loving care and forever homes to more than 90% of the animals that enter their facility. CPHS saves roughly 1,800-2,000 animals every year!

CPHS is also part of the Puppie Love Pack! We have been working with CPHS for 3.5 years, providing them with custom Puppie Love merchandise available at their Shelter. At the beginning of 2024, we learned of a horrific situation unfolding nearby in Bedford County, PA. Multiple humane societies, including CPHS responded to the scene of a home where more than 90 dogs and 8 cats were discovered. Cages upon cages were stacked from the floor to the ceiling, animals were malnourished and covered in their own excrement, many of them in need of serious medical care. On New Year’s Day, over 100 people packed into the Bedford County Humane Society to assist with the intake of these seized animals, which included CPHS staff. This rescue mission would require 2 Vet Clinics, 2 Shelters and multiple volunteers to provide the life-saving treatment, and adequate housing for these animals. 

Joe Zolna, Board President of CPHS who was on scene reported that this was the worst scene he had ever witnessed while working with the humane society. While many community members brought supplies to these shelters following the rescue mission, all of the dogs have needed some type of medical care and CPHS is still in desperate need of funds. When we learned of the situation, we knew that our February donation of $5,000 was going to go to our friends at CPHS.

On Wednesday 02/14, one of our team members here at Puppie Love went to visit CPHS and provided them with a goodie box and check for $5,000. We remain grateful to our customers who continue to support the Puppie Love mission and make donations like these possible. These shelters rely on donations and fundraising efforts in order to find loving, forever homes for animals in their care, and without your support we could not give back in this way!

Thank you for being a part of the Puppie Love Pack and helping to save dogs across the globe.

Thank you to CPHS for continuing to step up and meet the needs of animals throughout your community through communication, compassion and conviction.

    Thank you for your donation to CPHS. It was a wonderful generous thing to do. It couldn’t have gone to an organization who needed it any more.
