CVAS: Meet PoPo and Magpie, pets of the week


Meet PoPo and Magpie, 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 PoPo and Magpie 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.


PoPo came into the shelter because his owners could no longer afford him. He is one good looking black-and-white boy who is about 2 years old.

At the shelter, he wasn’t too sure about other cats, but was really nice with the people. This cute guy just needs a second chance.

Could you be the person to provide him one?


Meet Popo and Magpie

Magpie came to the shelter as a stray, and was very scared when she first arrived. With some time, baby talk, and treats Magpie learned to trust the staff. She has since come out of her shell and is a very silly girl!

She does know sit, but you have to get her tail to stop wagging long enough for her to do so! She is a “velcro” pup with her people and wants to be wherever you are!

Magpie loves to play in the outside play yard! She especially likes to play “keep away” which she thinks is great fun; however due to this we are requiring her potential home to have a fenced in yard so that Magpie has a safe area to run and have fun!

Magpie is still on the shy side with new people, so potential adopters will need to meet with her several times to establish a relationship with her before she goes home with them.

Due to no past history, an age restriction for children in the home may apply, so please discuss this with shelter staff.

Could Magpie be the pup for you?
