Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter
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 shelter provides a variety of services for the surrounding community and its animals and functions under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors, as well as an experienced staff. Through contributions from private individuals and organizations, the shelter maintains its dedication to animals. Without the generous support of the animal-lovers in this community and beyond, CVAS would not be able to care for the more than 2,000 animals that come through the doors every year. Shelter staff, board members and the four-legged friends in the kennels can’t thank contributors enough for their support.
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.
The vision is to remove any barriers that prevent CVAS from protecting, sheltering and adopting homeless animals within our service area.
Provide shelter to stray and otherwise homeless pets and minimize their stress, protecting them from the elements and providing a place of safety and comfort.
Act as the contact agency in our service area to assure the safe and speedy return of lost pets to their owners.
Place adoptable pets with responsible owners.
Aid in the prevention of cruelty and neglect to animals through educational efforts and legal citations as necessary.
Promote responsible pet ownership through humane education initiatives.
Work to reduce uncontrolled animal breeding.
