Help us build an outdoor concrete play space for puppies!


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 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!

Please donate today!


CVAS is in desperate need of volunteers to help us with daily tasks:

  • Animal care (food & water, cleaning litter boxes, sweeping & mopping)

  • Laundry

  • Dishes

  • Socializing

We are also looking for volunteers to help with photography & videography, fundraising, building maintenance, facility updates, and more!

Thank you to our current volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!

Bob is VERY ready for adoption!

IMG_20181206_125901120 (1).jpg

Bob came to CVAS after his owner moved and could not keep him. Bob is very loving and affectionate, and when he wants to be he can be quite energetic! Bob does have a chronic eye ulcer and will need long-term eye drops, but other than that he is in pretty good shape! If you are interested in meeting this wonderful kitty, please call us at 509.684.1475 or email us at cvasanimals (at)!

Kit Kat and Snickers are looking for their furrever home!

Snickers and Kit Kat came to CVAS as strays near the end of September 2018, but had a tummy bug that prevented them from being adopted for a little while. However, they are ready and so excited to find their furrever home! We hope to find a home that can take these brothers together: they are an energetic pair that play together and nap together, and when one gets scared he runs to the other for comfort! They love people, cuddles, and playtime, so if you are interested in a dynamic duo of wonderful boys, please call us at 509.684.1475 or email us at cvasanimals (at)!
