Pets of the week: Meet Walt and Sasha Fierce

Meet

Meet Walt and Sasha Fierce, this week’s CVAS pets of the week. They 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 are strays or have been simply abandoned.

They now need a second chance in loving, stable homes. They make wonderful pets and loving companions when they finally do find their forever homes.

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.

Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter has lots of adorable pets who are looking for forever homes. Walt and Sasha Fierce would love to meet you, but you might want to check out all the other amazing animals available for adoption also.

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 will change once the pandemic is under control.

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. So let the staff know of your interest in adopting Sasha Fierce, and get your application submitted soon.

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.

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.

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.

And now meet Walt and Sasha Fierce, this week’s featured pets at CVAS.

Meet Walt, a sweet guy that loves attention

Do you have a forever home for sweet Walt? (Submitted photo)

Walt arrived at the shelter with his sisters when they were very small kittens. He is the only boy in the group.

He spent his early days in foster care with his siblings until they were ready to find their forever homes.

Walt is a sweet little 4-month-old guy that loves attention and enjoys playing with the teaser toys! Do you have a forever home for Walt? 

Meet Sasha Fierce, one sweet girl

Meet Walt and Sasha Fierce
Sasha Fierce is the sweetest girl you will ever meet!

Sasha Fierce is the sweetest girl you will ever meet! She is a 4-year-old Shepherd mix who came into the shelter as a stray.

Sasha was scared when she first got arrived at the shelter. She didn’t understand why she was in a kennel, but with some extra love, Sasha came out of her shell and is doing well.

Sasha gets attached to her people quickly and doesn’t want to leave their side. She seems to know sit, down and will army crawl.

Sasha has a habit of jumping up when she’s excited, but she can be timid around new people. Because of this, she will have to meet with her potential adopters several times to establish a relationship with them.

Due to no past history and her timid nature, an age restriction for children in the home may apply, so please discuss this with shelter staff.

Could Sasha Fierce be the one for you?
