CVAS: Meet Norland and Lily, pets of the week


Meet Norland and Lily, 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 Norland and Lily 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.


Lily was surrendered to the shelter when her owners could no longer care for her. She is a 3-year-old husky mix who is a bit shy. She did live with another male dog and did well with him, but Lily does not seem to care for the company of other female dogs.


Because of her shyness, Lily might require several meetings before she goes to her forever home. Once she gets to know you, she’s a real sweet girl. She knows sit and is treat motivated!

Lily has never been around children, so an age restriction for children in the home may apply, please discuss this with shelter staff. Could you give Lily her second chance?


Norland arrived at the shelter as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about his past. We do know that he is one sweet boy who loves attention and treats.

This 1-year-old gray-and-white fellow is going to make someone an incredible companion. Could that be you?
