Meet Eeyore and Blossom, pets of the week


Meet Eeyore and Blossom, this week’s CVAS pets of the week. These are just two of the amazing animals residing at area animal shelters.

Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter  has lots of adorable pets who are looking for forever homes. While Lemon and Tangerine would like to meet you, check out all the other adorable animals available for adoption also. Go to this 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.

Adoptions by appointment

Adoptions now take place by appointment only, and that has worked very well. Donors have also helped with supplies and money, something very necessary to provide for the shelter’s homeless animals.

The staff’s first priority is the animals in their care. Staffers and volunteers working at the shelter have to stay healthy to care for the animals properly.

So even though Franklin County is now in the green phase of the COVID-19 mitigation, CVAS is still only allowing the public to visit the shelter by appointment.

Potential adopters can call 717-263-5791 For more information.


Do you have the right spot for Eeyore? (Submitted photo)

Eeyore came into the shelter as a stray and we’ve found he’s a pretty laid-back guy who likes to go on walks and take naps. This 6-year-old terrier mix does tend to jump up when he’s excited. Eeyore loves chew toys and Kongs filled with goodies to keep his mind busy. Because of his energy, he may be too much for small children, so please discuss any possible age restrictions with shelter staff. Eeyore would love to be your best four-egged friend.

Blossom is a 2-year-old tabby with white girl who came into the shelter as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about her. She is a happy girl who loves attention and will make someone a wonderful companion. Could that be you?
