CVAS pets of the week: Meet Honey Crisp and Gromit

Meet

Meet Honey Crisp and Gromit, 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.

Honey Crisp and Gromit 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 have been abandoned or are strays, like Honey Crisp and Gromit.

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.

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 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.

And now meet Honey Crisp and Gromit, this week’s featured pets at CVAS.

Meet Honey Crisp

Meet Honey Crisp and Gromit

Honey Crisp was brought into the shelter as a stray, so we know very little about his past.

At first, from the looks of it, we thought his hair might have been singed. We do not know why or how his hair came to be this way.

Honey Crisp is a sweet, 5-month-old guy that loves attention and has been wondering what a forever home is all about.

Could you show him?

Meet Gromit

Meet Honey Crisp and Gromit

Gromit came into the shelter as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about him. We think he’s a 4-year-old Catahoula Leopard dog mix (because of his coloring).

Gromit is a nice boy but can be incredibly shy. He will need someone that can work with him and understand that he may never be the bravest boy.

He loves attention and enjoys being with his people, but does not care for loud noises, fast movements, and can be a little hand shy. Gromit does not seem to care for other male dogs, but seems to be okay in the presence of females.

He was on the skinny side when he arrived and has been gaining weight steadily. He does know sit and will shake with both paws. Due to no past history an age restriction for children in the home may apply, please discuss this with shelter staff.

Gromit has come a long way since his arrival here at the shelter and we know he could go even further with you!
