Meet Alanis and Treasure, this week’s CVAS pets of the week


Meet Alanis and Treasure, this week’s CVAS pets of the week. These are just two of the amazing animals residing at area animal shelters.

Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter  has lots of adorable pets who are looking for forever homes. While Alanis and Treasure would like to meet you, check out all the other adorable animals available for adoption also. Go to this Animal Shelter link to see all their residents.

CVAS encourages anyone interested in bringing a four-legged friend into their home to check out the wonderful animals available for adoptions at the shelter.

Pets find themselves homeless for a wide variety of reasons, in need of a new home and a second chance. So if you are looking for a new furry best friend, check out the shelter’s many residents. Any of them would make a great pet and wonderful companion.

Adoptions now take place by appointment only, and that has worked very well. Donors have also helped with supplies and money, something very necessary to provide for the shelter’s homeless animals.

Potential adopters can call 717-263-5791 For more information.


Alanis arrived at the shelter with another dog as a stray. She is a 4-year-old Poodle/lab mix who will need someone that understands that they will need to regularly groom her as she does have longer hair (she is clipped short right now). Alanis is on the shy side at first but does warm up and will eventually be your best buddy the more she is around you! She does have a bad habit of trying to walk in between your legs while you are walking – we’re working on it at the shelter. Alanis may do better in a home with another more confident dog. She does know sit and will work for tasty treats! She would love to find her loving forever home soon! Alanis is currently not in our adoption area due to space; she will be shown to those with approved applications only at this time. CVAS, 5051 Letterkenny Road West, Chambersburg, Kennel License #2090


Treasure is a sweet medium-haired girl who loves attention! She came into the shelter as a stray an is one good-looking gal. She’s about a year old and still has a lot of kitten playfulness. Do you have the right spot for this Treasure?
