Pets of the Week: Meet Steve and Jasmine, CVAS pets of the week


Meet Steve and Jasmine, 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 lots of adorable pets who are looking for forever homes. While Lemon and Tangerine 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 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.

Adoptions by appointment

Adoptions now 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.

The staff’s first priority is the animals in their care. Staffers and volunteers working at the shelter have to stay healthy to care for the animals properly.

So even though Franklin County is now in the green phase of the COVID-19 mitigation, CVAS is still only allowing the public to visit the shelter by appointment.

Potential adopters can call 717-263-5791 For more information.

Steve Loves Attention

5-year-old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix (Submitted photo)

Steve was adopted and in a loving home for a while, but through no fault of his own was recently returned to the shelter. He is a 5-year-old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix who loves attention and playing with toys. Actually, he can get a little possessive of his toys. Because of his previous history, it would be best if Steve was the only pet in the home because he does not care for other dogs and will chase cats.

Due to his toy possession, Steve may also be too much for small children, so an age restriction for children in the home may apply. Please discuss this with shelter staff. Steve has become known as a “Velcro” dog because he just wants to be with you. He can be quite vocal when left alone, so apartment living or close neighbors might not be the best fit for Steve. Can you help this guy out?

Adopt this golden girl!

Jasmine came into the shelter because her owner could no longer care for her. She is a 9-year-old brown tabby girl who would love to find a second chance at a loving home. Jasmine had a history with her left eye and it continued to cause her pain, so it had to be removed shortly after her arrival at the shelter – the loss of her eye doesn’t hinder her in any way. She loves attention and would like a place in which she can spend her golden years. Could that be with you?
