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!


Monthly Low-Cost Vaccination Clinic

Every month CVAS holds a low-cost Vaccination/Microchip Clinic at the Country Store in Colville from 10 AM-12 PM.

Our March Clinic will be on Saturday, March 23rd.

The physical address is 466 W 1st Ave, Colville, WA 99114

We hope to see you there!

***We can only accept cash at this time.***


Purrcy Here with an Important Announcement!

Yes, it is I, the Grand Poobah gracing you with my presence, website viewers. For those of you who have not had the honor of meeting me, I am the official supervisor of CVAS and I take my job quite seriously. Due to the public’s support I have been able to keep our organization operating over the years and even have a blog every Sunday on Facebook to let our community know what is going on at CVAS.

I will be blunt, right now we are in need of help. Volunteers are the backbone of CVAS, and without their help I simply couldn’t run our facility all by myself. We need more volunteers to help with various tasks, as we prepare for kitten season.

If you have read my blog, you understand my feelings on kittens, and all of the extra work it means for our (only 2!) staff members and handful of dedicated volunteers.

To learn more, please do send an email to my loyal scribe at and tell her I sent you her way!
