This semester The Billboard is creating an animal adoption page for The Billboard Online Magazine. Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter (CVAS), located in Chambersburg, and Antietam Humane Society (AHS), located in Waynesboro, and Wilson College will be showcasing their animals with this ongoing feature.
CVAS was created in the late 1970’s and has grown from a two member organization to the caring body it is today. The members of CVAS are dedicated in their mission to protect, shelter and find loving homes for each of their animals. Cumberland Valley encourages anyone interested in giving an animal a loving home to stop by and meet the wonderful animals that reside at CVAS.
Wilson College has a long history with Antietam. AHS provides animals for the Veterinary Medical Technology surgery class every spring and fall semesters for spays and neuters to help train Wilson’s future veterinary students in the operating room atmosphere. AHS requires an adoption application before starting a two-week foster period and adoption finalization. Members at AHS work hard to match wonderful animals to good homes and good homes to wonderful animals.
The Billboard Online Magazine will feature pocket pets in addition to dogs and cats. The Wilson College’s VMC is home to a variety of small animals up for adoption that includes rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice and hamsters.
Currently, the small animals from the VMC will not be available until the end of the semester. However, people interested in adopting can ask to be put on an interest list to reserve an animal for adoption.
The adoption page will include pictures and profiles for adoptable animals along with contact information for each of the shelters. Currently, there are only profiles of cats and dogs on the page. However, there are future plans to make it more diverse to include pocket pets and large animals.
Animals give unconditional love and deserve a loving home. Come visit The Billboard’s adoptions page and look for new members to add to the family.
