Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter is one of the finest shelters in the state of Penna. I consider it an honor to have served on the Board of Directors of Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter since 2000. It is the finest organization of its kind that I have ever known. The staff is skilled and very caring. The volunteers are the best--loyal and selfless. Their facility is clean and cheerful, and their dedication to their mission is strong. This organization, I'm happy to say, receives whole-hearted support from the community it serves.

As a volunteer and a mom to a shelter cat I can't say enough good things about CVAS. Their staff is friendly, even when they are overwhelmed with people. They are helpful when I call in or have questions. I enjoy volunteering time and supplies to the shelter because I know they are going to put the supplies to good use and the staff is genuinely overtaxed and needs assistance. CVAS does what is best for the animals that come through their facility. That doesn't always make the public happy. However, if you are TRULY interested in the welfare of the animal as opposed to 'owning' something, then it is a non-issue. THANK YOU CVAS for our 4-legged family member, for helping me teach my child the value of community involvement and for providing a much needed service to the Franklin County area. God bless!

My wife and I were very pleased to come home from the shelter with our new peke named Davinchi.We wre blessed to have him in our lives for almost 5 yrs.During this past summer of 08 a pittbull came into our yard and into our screen door taking little Davinchi away.The pittbull was put down by the local police dept and our vinch was gone.My wife and I love our dogs as our children,and they know it too.When the word got out of our loss,many people were there for us but once again the wonderful people at cumberland valley were there.They all knew Davinchi and loved him like we do.I just want to send special thanks to Jamie,Megan,and Carol, and to all the great people there.Thanks for what you do.God Bless.The Mahers

CVAS is a well-run shelter with an extremely dedicated staff. They have transformed the shelter from a sad place to a shelter the public does not feel traumatized by when trying to adopt an animal.
