Help Animals in Need this Holiday Season

Help us fill an animal’s food bowl and spread some holiday cheer this season! From December 9th to January 9th, every time we get a like on Facebook we will donate a scoop of food in partnership with Hill’s Pet Nutrition to the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter – an animal shelter in our area.

Please help us by spreading the word! When we post on any of our social media accounts, please share, retweet, or create something on your own. We’re aiming to get 1,000 likes (that equals about 10 40-lb bags of dog food!) and we can’t do it without you! So please let all your friends, family, coworkers, and anyone else know so we can make this holiday season just a little bit better for these animals in need. Visit our Facebook page to make a difference!

The Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter, Inc. is an independent, non-profit, community-supported animal shelter that provides humane services for animals in need. Early grassroots efforts for the shelter actually began in the 1970’s, and throughout the years, the shelter has been maintained by a number of different organizations. In 1994, CVAS established itself as an independent, non-profit entity. The mission of the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter is to protect, shelter and adopt homeless animals in the northern Franklin and parts of southern Cumberland county service area.

Help CVAS Find a Home for Lena!

Lena is a white and chocolate Chihuahua at CVAS. She is approximately 4 years old. She is a very quiet, gentle little girl who can be slightly timid in new situations. Lena would do better in a quiet home. If children are going to be around the home, she would do better if they were 14 years old or older.
