Thanks so much to the American Legion Home Association 223 from Shippensburg for donating $5,000 to CVAS, part of which will go toward a spay/neuter clinic. Pictured above, from left are: Nancy Gardner, president of CVAS; Garry Robinson of the Legion; and Connie Woody, executive director of CVAS. We appreciate it!!

Folks, we REALLY need what we call Baby Baby food for our kittens. We've got some little ones! If you could drop some off, we'd appreciate it!







Kitten season is fast approaching and WE NEED FOSTER PARENTS. Please consider opening your home to babies who need just a little more time before they can be spayed and neutered and put up for adoption. For more information and to fill out a foster parent application, please click here.
