In late May, Anicira submitted a proposal to Harrisonburg City Council to enter into a contract for community-based animal shelter services. On August 8, Anicira's Founding President & CEO, Cate Lemmond, presented the proposal to City Council.

Anicira believes firmly in the No-Kill philosophy and knows that Harrisonburg can reduce its 51% euthanasia rate to under 10% while retaining an open admission shelter. With the help of our experienced leadership, community support, rescue partnerships, and more, Anicira is more than prepared to help Harrisonburg's homeless animals.
