Aidan’s Friends Fund

This fund was inspired by a dog named Aidan and the people who rescued him from a life on a chain.  The fund subsidizes the cost of spay/neuter surgeries for Harrisonburg and Rockingham County dogs who otherwise would not have surgery.

Since its inception, over 2,000 dogs have been assisted through this fund.


Feline Fund

The Feline Fund is dedicated to assisting Rockingham and Harrisonburg cats.  Over 5,500 cats have been spayed/neutered through this program.


Pit Fix

The center offers $40 spay/neuter surgeries for American Pit Bull Terriers and Pit Bull mixes residing in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County.  This program was developed in response to the high number of Pit Bulls being euthanized in regional shelters without ever knowing the warmth of a home or the love of a family.
