CVAS pets of the week: Meet Lucy and Ethel

Meet

Meet Lucy and Ethel, 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.

Lucy and Ethel 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, like Lucy and Ethel, have been abandoned or are strays.

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.

They now need a second chance in loving, stable homes. They make wonderful pets and loving companions when they finally do find permanent, loving and stable homes.

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.

Go to the Animal Shelter link to see all their residents, and meet Lucy and Ethel while you are there.

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 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 are heartbreaking.

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 adoption at the shelter.

And now meet Lucy and Ethel, this week’s featured pets at CVAS.

Meet Lucy and Ethel, two classy ladies

On one of the hottest days of 2021, Ethel was found in a container at the doorstep of a local veterinary office with her kittens, after hours. It was lucky that they were found when they were or it would not have been a good outcome.

Ethel and her babies were fostered and vetted by the clinic that found them and the babies got adopted, but Ethel is still looking for her home.

She is a sweet girl that did well with the dogs in her foster home. She loves to play with the teaser toys!

Ethel is around 11 months old and is ready to find her loving forever home where she will not have to worry about being abandoned ever again!

Lucy came in on the same day as Ethel – one of the hottest days of 2021. She was found in a container with her kittens at a vet clinic.

Mom and babies were taken into foster care and vetted by the clinic. The kittens found homes, but Lucy still needs a forever home.

Lucy is a sweet girl that did well with the dogs in her foster home, but only likes the company of Ethel as far as other cats go.

Lucy is also around 11 months old and would love to find a place where she wouldn’t have to worry about anything ever again.
