Meet Eeyore and Boo Boo, pets of the week


Meet Patty Cake and Lotta Ears, 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 adoption 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 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.

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 to 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 the shelter staff. Eeyore would love to be your best four-legged friend.  

Boo Boo

He’s ready for her forever home (Submitted photo)

Boo Boo was surrendered to the shelter when his owner was moving and could not take him along. Boo Boo is 5-year-old Chihuahua/Fox terrier mix who just wants to be with people. He weighs about 17 pounds and is currently on antibiotics to treat Lym disease.

Boo Boo loves to go outside for walks. Per his previous owner, Boo Boo does chase cats, so a home without cats would be the best for him. He has never been around children, so an age restriction for children in the home may apply, please discuss this with shelter staff. Do you have the right spot for this cute guy?
