Meet Tony Pepperoni and Prince Harey, this week’s CVAS pets of the week


Meet Tony Pepperoni and Prince Harey, 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 Tony Pepperoni and Prince Harey 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.

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

Tony Pepperoni

Tony Pepperoni was running around for a while before he was caught and brought in to the shelter. He is a playful 2-year-old guy who loves to make everything into a game. He enjoys playing keep away, both with his toys and when it’s time to come inside from the play yard. We are trying to teach him that keep away isn’t always fun for the humans who take care of him. We recommend a fenced-in yard for Tony. He’s 72 pounds and doesn’t seem to realize how big he is. Because of this, he may be too much for small children and an age restriction could apply. Please talk with shelter staff about that. Tony has that face that is just too cute. He would love to find his forever home soon.

Prince Harey

Prince Harey is a 5 months old American rabbit who is white and gray. He came into the shelter as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about him, but he is one cute little bun and will make someone a nice companion. Could that someone be you?
