CVAS pets of the week: Meet Sadie and Ash, two special cats

Meet

Meet Sadie and Ash, 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.

Sadie and Ash 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 have been abandoned or are strays. In Sadie and Ash’s cases, their original owners could no longer take care of them and chose the responsible alternative: Giving them up for adoption instead of putting them outside to fend for themselves.

They now need a second chance in loving, stable homes.

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.

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 Honey Sadie and Ash, this week’s featured pets at CVAS.

Meet Ash, just looking for a est (human) friend

Ash came into the shelter because his owners could no longer care for him. He’s a 4-year-old gray boy who is super sweet.

He doesn’t seem to care too much for the company of other animals, but boy, does he love his humans!

Ash enjoys treats and getting his chin scratched. He would love to find someone that could be his new best friend.  

Meet Sadie, a very special Calico

Meet Sadie and Ash

Sadie came into the shelter on October 26, 2020, so she’s been at the shelter for almost a year. That’s too long to live in a cage.

She was surrendered with 24 other cats because her owner could no longer care for them.

Sadie is a 6-year-old calico girl looking for her second chance. Could you be who she needs?
