CVAS pets of the week: Meet Dorito and Bill, looking for a home

Meet

Meet Dorito and Bill, this week’s CVAS pets of the week.

Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter, the county’s premier shelter for homeless animals, has many residents that would love to meet prospective “fur”ever families.

Dorito and Bill are just two of the amazing animals residing at area animal shelters. Some are orphaned or given up for adoption for various reasons. Others, like Dorito and Bill, have been abandoned or were strays.

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.

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

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.

Go to the Animal Shelter link to see all their residents and meet Dorito and Bill while you are there.

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. You can only view dogs 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.”

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

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 adoption at the shelter.

Meet Dorito

meet Dorito and Bill

Dorito was brought into the shelter after being found fending for himself outside. He’s a 3-year-old albino, American mix rabbit.

He does not mind being held and loves to explore!

Dorito has been neutered and was a great patient when it came time for his pain medication afterwards.

He would love to find his forever home where he will not have to worry about being dumped and left to fend for himself ever again!

Meet Bill

Meet Dorito and Bill

If Bill could talk, we are sure he would have an adventure to tell!

He was brought into the shelter as a stray that had been spotted running on his own for a few weeks. When he arrived, he was underweight and covered with ticks.

Bill is a sweet 3-year-old Shepherd/hound mix who loves being with people and getting treats. He knows sit and shake, too.

Do you have the right spot for Bill?
