CVAS pets of the week: Meet Pammy and Precious

Meet

Meet Pammy and Precious, 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.

Pammy and Precious 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 Precious, 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 Pammy and Precious 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. Now you can go in and meet Pammy, and see if she would fit in your family.

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 Pammy and Precious, this week’s featured pets at CVAS.

Meet Pammy

Meet Pammy and Precious

Pammy came into the shelter because her owner could no longer care for her because of their health.

Pammy is 13 years old and a super sweet girl. She doesn’t mind being brushed, which is a good thing as she does have longer fur and will need regular brushing to keep her from matting.

Pammy has had a senior blood panel done and everything was perfect for her! Could you give this girl a place to live out her golden years?

Meet Precious

Meet Pammy and Precious

Precious is a 7-year-old lab mix who came into the shelter as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about her. When she arrived, Precious was in rough shape. She had mange and a bad skin infection caused by it, with infections in both of her ears. She was treated for all of that and is doing well, but may have possible allergies.

Precious will need an adopter that understands they will have to work with their veterinarian on future care to keep her haircoat and skin looking healthy.

She is a happy girl who loves treats and taking walks outside. Because of her energy level and not knowing her past history, Precious may be too much for small children, so an age restriction for children in the home may apply. Please discuss this with shelter staff.

If you think you might have the right spot for Precious, apply today!
