Anicira’s Operation Free Pet Healthcare provides subsidized wellness, medical, surgical, and dental care for underserved cats and dogs. The program was started in December 2019 to address the lack of access to veterinary care within the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County communities of Virginia. Veterinary care is the foundation of a pet’s health, and through this program, we are working towards our vision of ending animal suffering. The program is designed to protect and enhance the human and non-human animal bond by keeping pets and their families together.
