CVAS: Meet Kitt and Mittens, pets of the week


Meet Kitt and Mittens, 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 many adorable pets looking for forever homes. While Kitt and Mittens 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.


Kitt came into the shelter as a stray and we found out that she loves attention and walks. She does pull a little on the leash, but does well with a “no pull” kind of leash. Kitt likes to carry her toys around in the play yard and knows sit and shake.

She’s a 2-year-old terrier mix who is willing to work to both please and for treats! Due to no past history with children, an age restriction for children in the home may apply, so please discuss this with shelter staff. Kitt would love to find out what a loving forever home is all about! 


Mittens was brought into the shelter by the police after being found running. No one ever came forward for this sweet girl, so now she is looking for home to call her own! Mittens is around 2 years old and loves getting belly rubs. In fact, she asks for them frequently. She is an energetic girl that will need someone that can provide her with regular exercise.

Due to energy and excitement level Mittens may be too much for small children, so an age restriction for children in the home may apply. Please discuss this with shelter staff. Mittens did test positive for a tick-borne disease known as Anaplasmosis, which she is currently on a medication course for and is doing well. Do you have the right place for Mittens?

Chewy commercial says it all

I have been what I like to call a television aficionado for many, many decades. I enjoy a good evening spent in front of the old boob tube and have since I was young.
