SPONSOR AN ANIMAL:
CVAS encounters many animals who end up needing long term assistance. In order to provide adequate care for these animals, CVAS depends entirely on the goodwill of the community through donations and volunteers. You can help these deserving animals through our 2018 "Sponsor a Pet" program. For under 80 cents a day ($25 a month) you can provide the food and medical care needed for a long-term resident of your choice. You will receive monthly updates on your animal with a picture included, and you are encouraged (but not required) to come and socialize with him/her. If you are interested in Sponsoring any of the animals listed below, please call (509) 684-1475 to sign up today!
Sissy was born at the Sanctuary on Labor Day, 2017. She was the runt of her litter, and required special care. She started to grow, but fought severe diarrhea for weeks. It was so bad her hindquarters were raw and painful. Nothing seemed to work, and the CVAS staff was beginning to feel discouraged. Then a vet suspected an overgrowth of bacteria in her gut, and prescribed treatment. It seems to be working, and for the first time ever, Sissy has gone a whole day without a bath! We are keeping our fingers crossed for Sissy--she is definitely a fighter.
Koda is a 13-year-old husky female that was brought to us on 7-27-17 with a progressive degenerative disorder that affects the mobility of her hind legs. She has been fortunate to find a loving CVAS foster who has opened up her home to Koda for the remainder of her days. Koda was also the lucky recipient of a custom-made wheelchair from Joey's P.A.W. (Prosthetics And Wheelchairs for dogs) in Pennsylvania, which will help her walk once she is unable to do so without support.
Rayne was a stray that was found behind Walmart in Colville. She was brought to CVAS with a horrible abscess in her mouth that had spread to an infection in her jaw, causing her immense pain. She was starving and ragged, and truly in need of some help. CVAS was able to provide her dental work, and she is gaining weight. She has a long road ahead to full recovery, but is on her way.
BILLY THE KID
Billy was a stray feral brought to CVAS. Billy is FIV positive, so he tends to get overlooked when it comes to adoption. Billy is also not a huge love bug, and prefers to be left alone. Despite seeming like a tough guy, Billy does have one soft spot--Allie. Allie, listed below, became Billy's best friend. They spend many hours cuddling and showing affection toward one another. Together they show that love truly can be found in the oddest of places.
Allie came to us when her owner passed away. Allie is very affectionate and quite talkative. Unfortunately, Allie has the human equivalency of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), meaning frequent accidents outside the litterbox. This is being managed with so far with only partial success, and she is not a good candidate for adoption. She is let out of her private kennel daily though, so she can cuddle with her beloved Billy.
