Volunteers lead spring cleanup


"We are all animal lovers and love to support a good cause. Giving back not only benefits CVAS, but makes us better people." We love this quote from Jenna Tracy, who organized the cleanup day at CVAS on April 30. Twelve volunteers worked for hours to clean outdoor pens, remove invasive burdock, and mow the grass. Pictured: Pattie McFarlain, Katelynn McFarlain, Cheyann McFarlain, Ashlynn McFarlain, Jeremy Tracy, Jenna Tracy & Caleb Tracy. Not pictured: Tia and Rosie Kennedy, Stormy Wallace, and CVAS board members Linda and Dave Fietz. Thank you all, from the bottom of our furry little hearts.


KEEP YOUR PETS FEELING THEIR BEST - The next CVAS low-cost vaccination clinic will be Saturday, May 13, 10-noon at the Country Store in Colville. You can also take advantage of a great price on microchipping, which can help you find a lost pet. Click on May 13 on the Events calendar here to see available vaccinations, dewormer, and costs, for both cats and dogs.


The Colville Valley Animal Sanctuary is a rural animal shelter located in northeast Washington State. We have many wonderful pets available for adoption and would be happy to schedule a time for you to see them. (Due to limited staff, we are currently able to accommodate visitors only by appointment.) We can be reached at (509) 684-1475.




Volunteers needed to clean!


Due to the rescue of hundreds of distressed colony cats in recent months, we have a very large number of cats at the Sanctuary right now. Our biggest volunteer need is people who can come in and clean cat enclosures for a couple of hours between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. This work has to be done every day without fail, and every volunteer hour helps! Please fill out the volunteer form here if you are able to help with this pressing need!



For information on cat spay/neuter clinics, call Stevens County Cat Care at (509) 935-6369.
