CVAS pets of the week: Meet Duff, Pogo and Goose

Meet

Meet Duff, Pogo and Goose, 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.

Duff, Pogo and Goose 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, like Duff, 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 Duff, Pogo and Goose 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.

And now meet meet Duff, Pogo and Goose, this week’s featured pets at CVAS.

Meet Duff, a sweet guy who loves people

Meet Duff, Pogo and Goose

Duff came into the shelter as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about him.

He is an 8-year-old Coonhound who loves to smell everything! He can also be quite vocal so apartment-living or close neighbors may not be the best type of home for him.

Duff loves to go on walks and take in all the smells, which is an important part in a hound’s wellbeing. Duff did recently have a dental cleaning and a broken tooth removed and did well though the whole thing.

He does not mind car rides and does well crated in a car. Duff is a sweet guy who just likes being around people. He will need to meet all family members.

Do you have the right place for Duff?

Meet Pogo, who with cagemate Goose was given up for adoption

Meet Duff, Pogo and Goose

Pogo and her cage-mate Goose were surrendered to the shelter in November of 2021.

They are one and a half years old. Pogo is a brown and white dumbo rat mix and while she can be shy at first, she is very curious. Pogo and Goose are a bonded pair so we would love to keep them together in their new home!
