Anicira is a not-for-profit organization that provides many services for pets in need and the families who love them.  We are committed to ending animal suffering.

Donations make our work possible through a variety of ways. From assisting with making veterinary services affordable and accessible to accepting animals from under-resourced shelters to providing pet food for families in need, your donation makes an impact.

Monthly Giving

Think about what you spend $5 or $10 on each month – Coffee? A couple of lunches? What about $20? $50? $100?

Can you help support Anicira’s lifesaving work instead?

Over a year, your monthly donation could…

  • Spay a rescue cat ($5/month)
  • Transport 5 dogs to Anicira from underresourced shelters in southwestern Virginia ($10/month)
  • Provide complete TNR services to 5 feral cats ($20/month)
  • Treat a large dog for heartworm disease ($50/month)

It is easy to sign up and easy to suspend at any time if needed. Each month your designated amount will be transferred from your credit/debit card. No more writing checks or paying for postage! You can also participate at a higher giving level by spreading your donation out over 12 months.

As a member of the Faithful Friends Monthly Giving Club, you will receive special recognition in our newsletter and we will mail you an Anicira car magnet. Plus you’ll have the knowledge that every month, you’re helping animals in need and saving lives.

Other Ways to Give

Gifts of Stock

Appreciated stock is an ideal gift option, making it possible for you potentially to deduct the fair market value of the gift and avoid capital gains tax on appreciation.

Gifts of Real Estate

Land or other real estate property can be a wonderful way to fund a gift. The gift amount depends on the certified appraised value of the property.

Bequests in a Will or Trust

What you put in your will or trust is what people will remember you by. Your will or trust gives you the opportunity to transfer the values that are important to you. One of the best ways to leave a legacy like this is to make charitable bequests in your will or trust.  Anicira relies on donations and grants to continue our lifesaving work. You can help us sustain our programs and save even more animals by including Anicira Veterinary Center in your estate planning.

Donation-Funded Programs

Adoption Program

Since starting the adoption program in March 2016, Anicira has saved and adopted out over 1,000 dogs!

Anicira is dedicated to providing each dog with its best chance at a new life. All medical care needed is provided; below are a few of our dogs that needed a little extra help to find their “furever” homes.

Aidan’s Friends Fund & Feline Fund

These funds help Harrisonburg and Rockingham County dogs and cats be spayed or neutered.  Economically disadvantaged families living in our community are eligible to receive subsidized surgeries for their pets thanks to our generous donors.


Trap-Neuter-Return, or TNR, is a program designed to humanely reduce the overpopulation of free-roaming, abandoned, and feral cats. These cats are safely trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, ear tipped, and returned home. A left ear tip is the universal symbol of a spayed/neutered and vaccinated cat.  It is done while the cat is under anesthesia and it is not painful.

Since opening our clinic in 2005, Anicira has provided over 20,000 spays/neuters in our TNR program.

Pet Food Pantry

The Pet Food Pantry is a much-needed service in our community to help pets stay in their homes while their caregivers are facing financial stress. Over 3,000 lbs. of food is given out every month.
