dogs cats



Oh, the story of Lucky is a sad one. This little guy was found in our outside run one morning and couldn't walk on his front let. We searched for an owner, but no one came forward. He's ours now and required relatively extensive surgery to fix a broken elbow and he's recovering nicely in foster care, but our vet bills are really accumulating. If you want to help Lucky, please donate to our Second Chance Fund and you will help with the bills for this sweet little guy. We don't know when he'll be available for adoption because he's still recovering. Thanks SO MUCH to everyone who has helped and if you would click the donation button below, we would appreciate it.

CVAS and all animal lovers thank Sen. Rich Alloway for his strong support of SB 626, which would ban live pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania, and HB 1750, which would prohibit the use of cats and dogs for food, and prohibit owners from using them as targets.  Hard to believe some people consider these a sport, isn't it? United Against Puppy Mills urges residents of Pennsylvania to contact their state legislators and urge them to support House Bill 1750. Sessions of the Senate will continue throughout the weekend (June 28, 29) and a full vote of the General Assemble is scheduled for Monday, June 30th.  Your state senator and representatives as well as their contact info can be found by visiting:
