CVAS Needs: FIREWOOD! It's hard to contemplate now, but winter always comes too soon and we will need a lot more firewood.


LAPTOPS! If you have a laptop in good condition but are upgrading to the machine of your dreams, consider donating your older one to CVAS. We could use a couple for staff and volunteers!

e-mail if you would like to donate these items, thank you!


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.



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


Volunteers needed!

Due to the rescue of hundreds of malnourished colony cats, we have a large number of cats at the Sanctuary. People who can come in and clean cat enclosures for a couple of hours between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. even one day a week or twice a month, etc., would help lighten the load for our long-time volunteers. Cleaning and feeding 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 any of the shelter's pressing needs!

KEEP YOUR PETS FEELING THEIR BEST - The next CVAS low-cost vaccination clinic is scheduled for Saturday, June 17, 10-noon at the Country Store in Colville.

Volunteers needed!


To answer the phone! If you can spend a few hours a week covering the phone, we will train you on when to take a message and how to answer the most common questions. Dogs need walking every day, and someone who will show up regularly and be a friend can make all the difference to a displaced dog.

If you enjoy YARD WORK we have that too!

Please fill out the volunteer form here if you are able to help with any of these pressing needs!
