Celebrate Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat-Month!

Did you know that June is officially Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month? In honor of such a wonderful cause, we would like to highlight a few local shelters and their adoptable cats! If you’re like me and would love to participate in this cause but are currently unable to open up your home to a new addition, do not fret! We will also provide ways in which you can volunteer at these shelters and help these cats find their forever homes!

Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter

Located at 5051 Letterkenny Road West in Chambersburg, PA, the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter (CVAS) is currently running a HEART Cat Adoption Campaign to help its members find their forever homes. Kittens that are six months of age or younger are adopt one and take a second kitten home for no additional adoption fee! Adoption fees for cats that are older than six months of age are by donation! Each adoption fee includes:

  • Spay/neuter
  • Microchip
  • Dewormer
  • Flea and ear mite treatment
  • Feline leukemia and AIDS testing
  • Core vaccinations
  • Collar and ID tag
  • Cat carrier
  • Complimentary wellness exam at participating veterinarian practices (We participate at all three locations!)

If you are interested in adopting a “fur baby” from the CVAS, you can view the shelter’s adoptable pets at Petfinder. Please keep in mind that an adoption application must be completed for serious inquiries and can be completed online here.

If you are interested in volunteering your time at the CVAS, you can view the shelter’s current opportunities here.
