CVAS pets of the week: Meet Cressida and Jasper

Meet Bentley and Olympia

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

They are adjusting to a new life at CVAS and now need a second chance in loving, stable homes. They will 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. While Cressida and Jasper would like to meet you, you might want to check out all the other amazing animals available for adoption also.

Go to this Animal Shelter link to see all of CVAS’s 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.

Beginning Tuesday, June 21, the shelter’s cattery opens 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.

Visitors are asked to wear face masks to protect CVAS 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.”

Pets find themselves homeless for a wide variety of reasons, in need of a new home and a second chance. Some of their stories, like Queenie’s and Tuna’s, are heartbreaking.

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 Cressida

Cressida came into the shelter as a stray and she was very pregnant. We got her into foster care and until she and her babies were ready to find a home.

Cressida is a sweet, 3-year-old tortie who is a bit on the shy side. She will need someone that understands that she will need some time to adjust to a new environment; and may hide until she feels safe.

Once she feels confident, Cressida loves attention and enjoys chin scratches.

Can you help this mama out?

Meet Jasper

Look at that cute little face! Don’t you just love him already?

Jasper is a sweet guy looking for a second chance. Could you give him one?
