Anicira Celebrates 15 Years of Happier, Healthier Pets
In 2005, we opened our doors with a mission of providing affordable spay/neuter surgeries. In the 15 years since opening, Anicira has expanded our services and now provides a full range of high quality, affordable veterinary care so that pets can live longer, happier and healthier lives. We have had the honor of serving more than 250,000 pets!
To celebrate this exciting milestone and all of those who made it possible, Anicira Veterinary Center in Harrisonburg gave away treats, gift cards, and service throughout the first 15 days of September.

Local shelters saw a 30% reduction in intake within the first five years and a 50% reduction in intake by the 10 year mark. Last year alone, we performed 16,921 spay/neuter surgeries.
