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.

Every month, CVAS holds a vaccination clinic at the Country Store in Colville. All vaccinations are $15 (rabies, 4-way combo for dogs, 3-way combo for cats). Microchips are available for $20. 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.


Feeding Kitten_500px.JPG

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 willing to do the frequent feedings, please let us know.

We also have a "kitten wish list" on the flyer at the bottom of this page. Thank you again to our regular fosters, you do heroic work!





Rosie (right) came to CVAS in July with two other adult cats and two kittens. Rosie was severely malnourished, weighing about four pounds. She has since been spayed and was on a steady diet of cat food and butter (yes, butter!!) to help her gain weight!  She has since gained a LOT of weight (she’s kind of a little chunk now) and is now available for adoption! Visit our Sponsor an Animal page for more information about how to sponsor a CVAS animal, or click here to look at our adoptable animals!

Make an appointment today to visit our wonderful cats and dogs. If you aren't ready to bring a new pet home, you can "virtually adopt," and sponsor the care of an animal in need.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of CVAS. Make a difference in your community, and join us!

Your donations make our shelter and rescue work possible. With your support, every year CVAS helps more than 600 cats and dogs in need of food, shelter, and medical care.
