Meet Aphrodite and MRI, pets of the week


Meet Aphrodite and MRI, 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 Lemon and Tangerine 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 adoption 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 by appointment

Adoptions 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.

Aphrodite was surrendered to the shelter when her owner could no longer care for her. She is a 2 year old terrier mix who needs a little time getting used to people. She may require more than one meeting with her potential adopters to establish a relationship before she goes into her new home.

Once Aphrodite is comfortable, she will seek out attention. She also has a wonderful smile! She loves to play ball and with squeaky toys (she does have to be supervised with stuffed toys, as she likes to rip them apart). She knows sit, but will need some work with other commands.

Aphrodite has done well with cats at the shelter, but her previous owner said that she will chase cats that are outside. She’s also used to having someone at home most of the time, so she’d not a fan of being left alone.

Aphrodite may be too much for small children so an age restriction for children in the home may apply, please discuss this with shelter staff. Could you take this gorgeous girl home with you?

MRI was brought into the shelter as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about her past. She can be a little on the shy side and will need someone who understand patience is a virtue with this little girl. MRI is about 9 months old and loves getting treats and playing with toys. Do you have the right spot for this sweetheart?
