Meet Dorito and Fawn, this week’s CVAS pets of the week.
It’s rabbit week at Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter, but the county’s premier shelter for homeless animals has many other residents that would love to meet prospective “fur”ever families too.
So Dorito and Fawn 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, like Dorito and Fawn.
They now need a second chance in loving, stable homes. They make wonderful pets and loving companions when they finally do find their forever homes.
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.
CVAS has lots of adorable pets who are looking for forever homes. While Dorito and Fawn would love to meet you, you might want to check out all the other amazing animals available for adoption also.
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.

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.

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.
And now meet Dorito and Fawn, this week’s featured pets at CVAS.
Fawn is a sweet, brown American mix rabbit who came into the shelter as a stray. We think she’s about 1 year old.
She has the cutest little white spot on her nose. If you understand rabbit care, check out Fawn and see if she might be the right one for you.
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!
