On 10/16 from 11am-2pm, ALL of our adoptable dogs (and some kittens) will be at Bob Wade Subaru (2941 S. Main St, Harrisonburg VA 22801) for their big adoption event! If you've been looking to adopt a furry friend, now is the time! No appointment needed. Come out to the dealership this weekend and meet our great pets, like Cutie Pie (pictured).
Dogs adopted from the event will receive Subaru pet gift bags, be eligible for custom dog tags, and more fun giveaways throughout the day.
Empty the Shelters Oct. 11-16
This event is sponsored by the BISSELL Pet Foundation. We have extended their national “Empty the Shelters” adoption event from Oct. 11 –16. This is a quarterly effort that has helped 61,781 shelter pets find their forever homes. Adoption fees for cats and kittens will be lowered to $25 during this special, and small mammals such as guinea pigs and rabbits will have a $10 adoption fee.
Dogtober Oct. 1-31
This month-long adoption special features dogs that have been at the shelter for over 30 days. October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, so the event will feature specific dogs throughout the month and reduce their adoption fee to just $25. Visit our Dog pageto view a list of adoptable dogs. The pets included in this special will have a sticker on their profile photo.
For a $200 donation, we can bring 5 adoptable dogs to play with your event attendees. We'll bring everything they need and volunteers to handle them. If you'd like us to join you, just fill out our Showcase Request Form and we'll be in touch!
We are now having small, in-person orientations at the shelter once a week for the volunteer program. Prior to attending, please be sure to fill out a volunteer application below. While attending, please be sure to wear a face mask.
