CVAS pets of the week: Meet Maple and Boomer

Meet

Meet Maple and Boomer, 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.

Maple and Boomer are just two of the amazing animals residing at area animal shelters. Some are orphaned or given up for adoption for various reasons. Others, like Maple, have been abandoned or were 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 Maple and Boomer 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 meet Maple and Boomer, this week’s featured pets at CVAS.

Meet Maple, a great supervisor

Meet Maple and Boomer

Maple came into the shelter as a stray in August. We don’t know a lot about her, but we do know she is a sweet girl.

She’s about 8 months old and enjoys supervising the humans around her. Do you have the right place for Maple?

Meet happy-go-lucky Boomer

Meet Maple and Boomer

Boomer came into the shelter because his owner could no longer care for him. He’s a 9-year-old bulldog mix who is a happy-go-lucky guy that seems to love everyone he meets.

Boomer does tend to drool a bit, so his new owner will have to understand that trait of the bulldog in him. He weighs 65 pounds and enjoys getting back scratches.

Per his previous owner Boomer may be too much for small children, so an age restriction for children in the home may apply, please discuss this with shelter staff.

Boomer would love to find his forever home where he can spend his golden years.
