Furry Tales Literacy Program Begins this Fall for Students of All Ages!
Read to Rover! Get your kitty literature on with Purrcy! Furry Tales is a literacy program that members with Americorps have designed for Colville Valley Animal Sanctuary and the families we serve!
Every Saturday, staring October 5th, elementary students are invited to Furry Tales for literacy tutoring by local high school students! Come out to CVAS and read with our adoptables! Not only will this help your children develop their reading and writing skills in a non-judgemental atmosphere, they will help the animals become socialized! To find out more information about Furry tales and to register your student, click here.
We are also seeking student tutors! Community members have generously donated a scholarship to CVAS for one participating student tutor. Students who volunteer with Furry Tales will get one-on-one mentorship and build their resume to meet their college/career goals! This is an amazing opportunity for students who are driven, philanthropic in spirit, and love animals! Students who are interested in becoming tutors with Furry Tales should contact us and/or your school counselor ASAP!
We are delighted to have such a cool program in place for your kiddos! Help Us Help Them in a unique way this school year by becoming a part of the Furry Tales literacy program!
Mark Your Calendars!
Our annual Open House is Saturday, October 19th at 3:00pm. Join us at CVAS for a campfire, stories, and s’mores! The Open House is your chance to get to know CVAS and all that we do. With changes afoot, there’s a lot to talk about! Bring your whole family for plenty of treats and a barking good time!
Adopt Barn Cats this Fall!
As you winterize your property, you might consider getting one of the best mouse traps on the market—Barn Cats! These lovely creatures are well-suited for outdoor living and hunting. Adopt with CVAS and we will help set up your new cats with a structure to keep them happy and healthy. After a few weeks as the cats get used to their new home, CVAS will help take down and haul out the structure! Our open adoption hours are every Saturday from 12:30pm-3:30pm at the Sanctuary.
We Need YOU!
If any of these are YES then WE NEED YOU, and YOUR HELP!
To keep our doors open at CVAS, it costs $120,000 a year! Currently, we are over halfway through 2019 and nowhere near our Purrcy Pledge goal. We’ve reached a total of $24,424 from generous donors, but our donations are down in terms of where we need to be this year. Grants are hard to come by, and cannot be depended on. We have NO government funding.
We are asking people to pledge what they are comfortable giving monthly, all year long! Do you stop for a coffee several times a month or go out to eat for lunch most days? Giving one of those coffee $5 or lunch $10 amounts every month will make a huge difference for CVAS. Do you work for a company that allows you to make a charitable donation straight from your paycheck? Most companies will even match your donation! There are a ton of ways to get involved by donating to our organization.
Monthly Low-Cost Vaccination & Microchip Clinic
Every month CVAS holds a low-cost Vaccination/Microchip Clinic at the Country Store in Colville from 10 AM-12 PM.
Our next clinic is on Saturday, October 26th.
The physical address of the Country Store in Colville is 466 W 1st Ave, Colville, WA 99114.
We hope to see you there!
