Rescue U sets off to build the only shelter in Cameron County, PA


The trucks are packed and the volunteers are ready to work for the next Rescue U outreach trip, this time at the Cameron County SPCA in Emporium, PA . (Watch this video of our last Rescue U trip by The Dog Files.)

The SPCA is the only shelter in the community, and it is not
fully functional. The shelter is being built slowly as donations come in. The animals Cameron County takes in now are mostly in foster
homes — there is no space for them at the shelter.

About 20 students from Delaware Valley College and Pennsylvania high schools will be joining the Foundation to help
complete the construction on the shelter’s building. Students will be
working on fencing and dog bathing and vetting areas, building raised beds
for all the kennels, and
finishing the interior of the shelter.

Cameron County SPCA has done an amazing job getting this far, and our
student volunteers are just as serious about completing this safe haven
for the animals in Cameron County. By the time we leave, we hope that the shelter can respond effectively to the needs of
local homeless pets and be a part of creating a more humane community.
