Local Livestock and Pet Resources
This page is designed to give myself and anyone that needs it a quick list of local to me resources. Vet, feed, etc. If there is a place you'd like added, please let me know! Please also feel free to share reviews on places already listed. I will happily add them to the site, good or bad!
*Please keep language PG and constructive/critical instead of emotional and attacking. I hear where you're coming from, but we have to stay "PC" for the public. I DO want to hear about it though, so please do share! It just won't be posted.
Local will be defined as within an hour or so from the farm in Altoona PA. So this could be on the edge of Centre, Huntingdon, Blair(home), Cambria, Clearfield and Bedford counties.

A Personal Approach
It is our mission to provide the highest standard of care for your pet, yet keeping each pet and owner's individual situation in mind.
The Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement is charged with protecting Pennsylvania’s puppies and dogs, protecting consumers, and protecting our communities from dangerous and stray animals.
The bureau does this by ensuring the welfare of breeding dogs and puppies in kennels. They also regulate activities pertaining to dogs that are classified as dangerous and oversee annual licensure and rabies vaccinations for dogs.
State dog wardens also pick up and transport stray dogs to shelters and if licensed, there’s a higher chance they’ll get reunited with their family. The bureau disburses funds to shelters that take in and hold stray dogs, as well.
Revenue from the sale of dog licenses funds the work of dog wardens protecting all dogs and puppies in kennels, shutting down bad actors and puppy mills, keeps dangerous dogs monitored and off the street, and our communities safe.
Allows dog wardens to:
- *Reimburse farmers for damages to livestock caused by dogs or coyotes*
- Inspect more than 2,500 state-licensed kennels, a minimum of twice annually.
- Investigate and prosecute illegal kennel operations "puppy mills".
- Control the spread of infectious and contagious diseases.
- Track and monitor more than 600 dangerous dogs.
- Pick up stray or abandoned dogs.
- Reimburse shelters for holding stray dogs.
