Help us build an outdoor concrete play space for puppies!

This holiday season, CVAS is happy to announce that we are putting on a fundraiser for our puppy program through Lynch Creek Farms! Twenty percent of your purchase of beautiful holiday decorations goes to our puppy program (you can also donate to our puppy program through Lynch Creek Farms without purchasing an item)!

CVAS has not been able to house puppies at the shelter since we have not had the funds to build a safe outside play area. It is extremely important to keep puppies off of bare ground until they have been fully vaccinated to protect them from parvovirus.


In the past, CVAS has immediately sent incoming puppies to foster homes or to partner shelters for their protection. However, we would love to be able to house puppies and adopt them out in our community!

Outdoor play is crucial for proper puppy development: they need exercise, they need to become accustomed to the outdoors, and they need a place to play with people and other puppies! CVAS hopes to build an outdoor area for puppies so they can develop physically, emotionally, and mentally, and grow up to be well-rounded healthy dogs.


CVAS is going to be CLOSED from Sunday, November 25th through Saturday, December 8th for its annual deep cleaning of the facility. We do so to be able to provide a clean and safe environment for all of our animals and to ensure that needed repairs are performed without causing additional stress to our special residents. Thank you for your patience and support during this time!

Deworming is just $1 for cats/small dogs, $2 for large dogs. The next clinic is scheduled for December 15th from 10am-12pm.

NOTE: We can only accept cash at this time.

Kitten season is here, and CVAS is low on foster families! If you are willing to take care of a mama cat or some motherless kittens for a little while (often about 2 weeks), please give us a call, or complete our Foster Form! Caring fosters save lives and give kittens the human interaction needed to give them a good chance of finding permanent, loving homes. If you have experience with bottle babies and are eager to Help Us Help Them, please let us know.

Thank you again to our dedicated fosters, you do truly heroic work!

When you adopt, you save a a life.


Thank YOU For Adopting!
