Adoption Center

We’re so glad you’re considering adopting from Anicira.  If you’re ready to bring home a furry family member, we invite you to view a complete list of our available dogs.  You can inquire today and we would be happy to set up a meet and greet as many of our dogs live with foster caregivers.

If you have any questions, please contact us via email:

The Adoption Process

You can submit an application through our website for any of the available dogs listed. After your application has been submitted we will be in contact with you within one business day.  If you are interested in a particular dog, just let us know which one and we can arrange a meet and greet at one of our adoption events each Saturday in Harrisonburg, VA.

Please email with any questions.

Our goal is to place each dog into permanent and loving homes.  We will do our best to connect you with the dog that best compliments you and your family.

Adoption Policies

  • All cats and dogs residing at the residence must be spayed/neutered.
  • We do not adopt dogs to outdoor-only homes.
  • All adults in the home must be in agreement before adopting.
  • All cats and dogs must be up to date on core vaccinations.

Our Promise

Our commitment does not end at adoption. If you have any questions or concerns years down the road, we will give you and your adopted companion ongoing support.

Our adoption program runs on donations. Please consider donating directly to Anicira, or purchase something for our pets from our Amazon WishList.
