CVAS pets of the week: Meet the awesome Bard and Axe

Meet

Meet Bard and Axe, 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.

Bard and Axe 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 Bard and Axe, have been abandoned or are 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 Bard and Axe 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 Gracie and Marinara, and see if they 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 Bard and Axe, this week’s featured pets at CVAS.

Meet tabby boy Bard

Meet Bard and Axe

Bard came into the shelter as a stray after being found living in a Rubbermaid container.

He’s a one-year-old brown tabby boy loves attention and getting treats. He also enjoys a good cuddle.

If you think you could give Bard what he’s looking for in life, fill out an application today!

Meet sweet, sweet Axe

Meet Bard and Axe

Axe lived in a Rubbermaid container for a while before he came into the shelter as a stray.

He’s five years old and is orange and white. When he arrived, he was covered in urine and had some urine scalding.

Axe is so sweet, though, and wants to find a place where he can forget about his past and only know love. Do you have a place like that?
