Meet Hank and Pearl, pets of the week


Meet Hank and Pearl, 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 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 Hank? (Submitted photo)

Hank is one cute little beagle who came into the shelter as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about him. We think he’s about 10 years old, but you could not ask for a better companion. Hank loves being around people and is so sweet.

We gave him a dental cleaning with multiple extractions because his teeth were in terrible shape – he could barely eat! Hank feels a whole lot better and would love to find a home in which to spend his golden years. Could that be with you?


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

Pearl has a story to tell, but we don’t know what it is. She came into the shelter as a stray and can be quite submissive. We think she’s about 7 years old and a terrier mix. Fast movements tend to make her cower. Pearl is really sweet and will make a very loyal companion.

She needs someone who understands she may never be the bravest girl, but she will be your best friend. Because of her fear of fast movements and loud noises an age restriction for children in the home may apply, so please discuss this with shelter staff.

Pearl is also dog selective, so a home without other dogs would be best for her. Do you have the right spot for Pearl?
