CVAS Pets of the Week


Looking for a new friend? The Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter is featuring these Pets of the Week. For more information, visit or call 717-263-5791.


Chance came into the shelter as a stray and we think he is about 10 months old. This guy weighs in at 56 pounds and is still growing. We think he might have Great Dane in him. Chance can be shy at first with new people, but with treats and encouragement he does gain confidence. He will need someone that can work with him on socialization. Chance is currently in his “awkward” teenage stage where he is all legs and is not quite sure what to do with them or himself! He is still a puppy, but is a rather large one that will need someone that understands the time and the patience that goes into training a young dog. Could you take a chance on Chance?

Whipped Cream

Whipped Cream arrived at the shelter as a stray, so we don’t know anything about this past. He is an adult, male silkie/sheltie guinea pig who loves fruits and veggies. When he arrived at the shelter, Whipped Cream had quite a few knots in his hair and needed to have it cut. He is a longhaired guinea pig and will need someone that can keep his hair from brushed and trimmed. Do you have the right spot for this cute little guy?
