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, click here to donate, or call (509) 684-1475 to sign up today!
Buddy was brought to us on May 1st in very bad shape. He had broken canines, an ulcer in his left eye, conjunctivitis, several old injuries, and a mass on his neck. During his surgery to be neutered, the vet discovered a bullet and a dog tooth embedded in his neck. Buddy is a very loving cat despite his hard past, and greets us every morning wanting pets, and more importantly, breakfast! He has a long road to a full recovery, and we anticipate that he will be with CVAS for quite a while. To sponsor Buddy, click here!
Rosie came to CVAS on July 17 with two other adult cats (likely her mother and her sister) and two kittens. They had been abandoned by their previous owners who moved away and left them behind. Although their neighbor tried to care for them, they could not afford to keep them. Rosie was severely malnourished, weighing about four pounds, and in heat which put additional stress on her body. If she had become pregnant, she probably would not have survived. She has since been spayed, and is on a steady diet of cat food and butter (yes, butter!!) to help her gain weight! She currently weighs seven pounds, and just needs to gain one more and maintain a healthy weight before she can go to a loving home! To sponsor Rosie, click here!
Roberto, a sweet stray, came to us on May 26th covered in ticks and scabs. He also had an upper respiratory infection and conjunctivitis. We had to throw away his bedding, as it was filled with MORE ticks, and then remove the ticks still attached to him. He is currently recovering from his infestation and his infections, but he remains as sweet as ever! To sponsor Roberto, click here!
THE KITTY CABIN
Kitten season is in full swing here at CVAS! We have many new mothers and their kittens, as well as several other litters. Some of our youngsters also need some additional medical care and socializing. New mothers and their babies require extra special care, safety precautions, and nutrition, and would definitely benefit from some loving community sponsors!

BILLY THE KID
Billy was a feral stray brought to CVAS in 2013. Billy is FIV positive so he tends to get overlooked when it comes to adoption. Billy is 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. To sponsor Billy, click here!
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 she has frequent accidents outside the litter box. So far her gastric issues are being managed with only partial success, and she is not a good candidate for adoption. She spends her days cuddling with her beloved Billy, chatting with staff and volunteers, and taking naps in the sunshine. To sponsor the beautiful Allie, click here!
