When you join the Walk for the Animals, you are supporting our life-saving programs. Every year, thousands of local animals are killed in shelters that are healthy or have treatable conditions. Since 2005, Anicira has been helping pets in need so that medically unnecessary euthanasia doesn't have to be an option. In 2018, Anicira's adoption program rescued 780 dogs.
We started out as the Shenandoah Valley Spay/Neuter Clinic and have grown to include an adoption program and a full service veterinary clinic. Check out some of the animals we've been able to help over the past year:
This handsome dude is LJ. He was the 170th pitbull to be fixed FOR FREE since mid-January of this year!
Brave Sir Bob was brought to us by a Good Samaritan who found him all beat up with one of his ears ripped off. Several weeks of care later, Bob charmed his way into a forever home!
Nursing moms and puppies are the one of the most vulnerable populations in shelters because they require more time and resources. Kaya and her 5 puppies had been dumped at a rural shelter before we took them into our adoption program.
