Make sure the pet is a good fit for your home and lifestyle.

Our adoption fee helps us cover vaccines, microchip, medical care, and spay/neuter.

7. Take the Pet Home

Adoption applicants must complete a screening form as the first step towards adopting a pet. Your application will be verified by staff who will explain the next step in your adoption process. All adoption criteria must be met before the adoption is approved. Once approved, you are under no obligation to complete the adoption if you change your mind.

Pets are placed in the best possible home if there is more than one application pending. We cannot place a hold, or accept a deposit, on a pet. Adopters may legally only adopt 2 pets within a 30 day period.

We can, and do, adopt to out-of-area homes given the applicant has physically interacted with the pet. We will not ship a pet.

How to Find a Good Match:
We have trained staff who can give you information on positive training, breed characteristics, temperament, activity level, and behavior. Please ask for assistance at the front desk, we’re more than happy to help you find a good match! If you are interested in a specific pet, note their name or intake number and inquire at (540)434-5270.

About Rockingham Harrisonburg SPCA

As an open admission animal shelter, we accept any pet who comes through our doors regardless of breed, temperament, color, size, health, age, adoptability, or their previous owner’s or finder’s ability to pay for the duration of their stay with us. We do not require an appointment, surrender fee, nor a pre-surrender behavioral assessment. While not every pet we receive is healthy or temperamentally sound, we work with foster homes, limited admission “no kill” rescues, breed-specific rescues, and knowledgeable volunteers and adopters to ensure that as many pets as possible find a home. See our website for more information about us, and to see our list of available pets that is updated in real-time.
