Meet Bentley and Olympia

Meet Hunter and Jessica, this week’s CVAS pets of the week. These are just two of the amazing animals residing at area animal shelters. Some are orphaned or given up for adoption for various reasons. Others have been simply abandoned.

They have recovered, at least physically, and now need a second chance in loving, stable homes. The make wonderful pets and loving companions when they finally do find forever homes.

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.

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.

Beginning Tuesday, June 21, the shelter’s cattery opens to visitors looking to adopt one of CVAS’s homeless cat residents.

Dogs can still only be viewed 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.

Visitors are asked to wear face masks to protect CVAS 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, like Queenie’s and Tuna’s, are heartbreaking.

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.

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.

Meet Hunter, a 2-year-old looking for a fur-ever home

Meet Hunter and Jessica
What’s this I hear about “forever” homes? Tell me more!

Hunter came into the shelter as a stray and we think he’s around 2 years old.

This guy absolutely loves attention! Hunter is particularly fond of catnip toys.

He would love to find out what a forever home is all about. Could you show him?

Meet Jessica, a sweet American who loves her veggies

Meet Hunter and Jessica
Jessica came into the shelter because her owners could no longer care for her. She’s now looking for a new home and a second chance.

Jessica came into the shelter because her owners could no longer care for her.

She is a 7-month-old American mix rabbit who is really sweet. She doesn’t mind being handled and enjoys snacking on veggies.

We encourage potential adopters to do their research on rabbit care and behavior before considering one as their companion.

Jessica has been spayed and is ready for her second chance!
