CVAS pets of the week: Meet Bentley and Olympia

Meet

Meet Bentley and Olympia, this week’s CVAS pets of the week. These are just a few of the amazing animals residing at area animal shelters. Some are orphaned or given up for adoption for various reasons. Others are strays or have been simply abandoned.

They have recovered and now need a second chance in loving, stable homes. The make wonderful pets and loving companions when they finally do find forever homes.

Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter has lots of adorable pets who are looking for forever homes, and while Bentley and Olympia would love to meet you, you might want to check out all the other amazing animals available for adoption also.

Go to the 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.

Changing rules for adoptions

The shelter has pretty well been on lockdown during the Covid pandemic with adoptions taking place by appointment only but that is about to change.

In June the shelter’s cattery opened to visitors looking to adopt one of CVAS’s homeless cat residents.

Dogs can still only be viewed by appointment with an approved application until they can become acclimated to visitors.

Hours to visit the CATS are: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

CVAS asks visitors to wear face masks to protect staff members.

For more information, call the shelter at 717-263-5791. To see animals available for adoption, log onto CVAS’s webpage here.

Thanks to Supporters, adopters

CVAS’s Communications Director Jennifer Vandrerau sends the following message to shelter supporters and donors:

“THANKS TO EVERYONE who helped keep the shelter going through this crazy year; and for understanding we are slowly working our way back to being open like we were before. Our supporters and adopters are the lifeblood of this organization and we APPRECIATE each and every one of you.”

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.

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.

Meet Bentley, active guy who loves to play

Bentley was surrendered to the shelter because his owner could no longer care for him and he did not get along with the cats in the home.

Bentley is a 7-month-old Lab/Husky/terrier mix. He’s an active guy who loves to play outside in the yard.

Bentley sometimes forgets how big he is and because of this, an age restriction for children in the home may apply, so please discuss this with shelter staff. Because of his past history, a home without cats would be best for Bentley and he can also be a little choosy about what dogs he likes, too.

If you think you’ve got the right spot for Bentley, please fill out an application today!

Meet Olympia, One sweet little girl

Olympia came into the shelter as a stray. She was found at Olympia Candy Kitchen and the nice people there kept her fed and well until she could be brought to the shelter.

She is one sweet little girl. We think she’s about 4 months old and would love to find her forever home. Maybe with you!
