Meet Brutus and Meg, this week’s CVAS pets. These are just two of the amazing animals living in area animal sanctuaries.
Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter There are many adorable pets looking for forever homes. While Brits and Meg will want to meet you, check out all the other adorable animals available for adoption. Go to it. Animal shelter Link to view all their residents.
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.
Pets find themselves homeless for a variety of reasons, needing a new home and a second chance. So if you’re looking for a new furry best friend, check out the shelter’s many residents. Either of them would make an excellent pet and wonderful companion.
Adoption is now by appointment only, and has worked very well. Donors have also helped with supplies and money, which is vital for the shelter’s homeless animals.
Prospective adopters can call 717-263-5791 for more information.
Brutus came to the shelter as a stray and we have found him quite active. We think he is about 2 years old and is a terrier mix. He loves to run and play in the shelter yard. Brits know how to sit and move. He loves attention, but he can be shy at times. He also chases cats, so a home without cats would be perfect for him. Due to no past history and their energy level, age restrictions may apply for children in the home, so please discuss this with shelter staff. Do you have the right place for Brutes?
Meg arrived at the shelter very weak and had to be fed small amounts of food throughout the day. She has been a happy go lucky girl since day one and seems to love everyone she meets! His tail is always wagging! Meg tested positive for Lyme disease and because she showed symptoms, was started on a round of antibiotics which she has taken like a champ!
During his doctor’s examination, it was found that his right hind leg had thickened at the knee, possibly due to an old and now healed, ACL injury that caused his feet to bend each way. Time speeds up, but it doesn’t slow it down! She is a 3-year-old terrier mix who loves to go on walks and enjoys playing ball in the play yard here at the shelter. Mag may be too much for small children who are not used to large dogs, so age restrictions for children in the home may apply. Please discuss this with the shelter staff. Could Mag be your new best four-legged friend?
