We've been watching the weather for this coming weekend (January 19 and 20) and we're making plans for the babies in the shelter. We don't know what it will bring, but any closings of CVAS will be announced on our Facebook page, so please check there before coming out to visit this weekend. Thanks everyone and please stay safe and warm!



We are having dead trees removed from the dog parks from Monday, January 21 through Wednesday, January 23. Both parks will be CLOSED during that time to make sure everyone stays safe. We apologize for any inconvenience.
