pets of the week

Meet Rafiki and Dragonfly, this week’s CVAS pets of the week. Dragonfly the cat and Rafiki, a black lab mix, are just two of the amazing animals residing at area animal shelters.

Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter has lots of adorable pets who are looking for forever homes. While Rafiki and Dragonfly would like to meet you, check out all the other wonderful 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 adoptions 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.

Rafiki even gives hugs once he gets to know you!


Rafiki was surrendered to the shelter because his owners were getting a divorce and they were no longer able to care for him. He’s a 2-year-old lab mix who didn’t know what to make of being here at the shelter at first – he was kind of scared and very reserved.

He can be aloof with people he doesn’t know and can bark kind of harshly at new people. Once he gets to know you, he is so loving. He even gives hugs!

The staff at the shelter just adore Rafiki. He will make someone a great companion as long as they understand he may need some time to adjust to a new home and new people.

Because of his shyness, an age restriction for children may apply and he is not in our general adoption area. If you think you have the right place for Rafiki, please ask to see him!

Dragonfly yearns to find a forever home

Dragon Fly

Dragon Fly was brought into the shelter as a stray, so we know very little about her past. She can be a little shy at first, but once she gets to know you, she’s a real sweet girl. Dragon Fly is about a year old and would love to find out what a forever home is all about.

New rules during Coronavirus pandemic

In accordance with Gov. Wolf’s mandate, the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter is limiting visits by the public to those seriously interested in adoption.

We will continue to care for our animals and accept any stray animals in our jurisdiction.

Those seriously interested in adoption can fill out anonline applicationhere.We will honor any appointments made with our adoption counselor.Please help us protect the health of our staff and volunteers.

Also, remember your own pets. Do you have someone who can care for them if you can’t be with them? Do you have enough food and medications for them?

Rest assured our staff will continue to care for the animals at the shelter and would certainly appreciate any help we could get at this time, either monetarily or pet supply donations. We love our Amazon friends who make sure we’re stocked up and our donors who are always willing to help.

It’s important to remain calm and not panic in the face of current conditions, but also be smart about this. Look out for one another and come together like human beings do in times of crisis. Help each other, both two-legged and four-legged. Thank you for your understanding.
