Waggin’ Around the Valley

By Hali Emmons

Hello there! 

I am a member of the Page SPCA and an avid animal lover. This column is going to showcase news, events and information on the care of animals in our county. 

For those who do not know, Page SPCA, the animal shelter and Page Paws are all separate organizations that work together for animals in our county. 

The Page SPCA helps raise funds for the annual rabies clinics they sponsor, advise those most in need of care for pets, and provide the community with a transport to a low-cost spay/neuter clinic. 

The animal shelter takes in strays and owner surrendered cats and dogs that Page County residents need assistance with. 

Page Paws is a support group that formed to assist the SPCA and the shelter in the overpopulation of homeless animals in our area. These organizations, and many more, are able to provide an incredible resource to our local population and save the lives of hundreds of animals!

An important update from Page Paws:

We are excited to announce that Cat’s Cradle a Harrisonburg-based, nonprofit animal rescue organization for cats in the Shenandoah Valley will be taking over the TNR (trap, neuter, return) responsibilities for Page County residents. Page Paws will be providing some financial assistance to Cat’s Cradle.

If you need TNR for your feral cats, please call Cat’s Cradle at (540) 433-1135. If there is no answer, please leave a message with contact information and someone will return your call.

If you have carrier cats – these are cats that are friendly and can be handled, or an indoor/outdoor cat that is in need of spaying or neutering — please contact one of our great local veterinary clinics.

If you cannot afford that option you may:

1. Contact Anicira Spay/Neuter Clinic in Harrisonburg. (540) 437-1980 to set up a lower cost spay/neuter option

2. Contact the Page County Animal Shelter (540) 778-2101 which provides a once a month animal transport to the Augusta Spay/Neuter Clinic for low cost spay/neuter services.

3. Contact Cats Cradle (540) 433-1135 and ask for Page County spay/neuter assistance. They will work with Page County residents to help them set up with Anicira for spay/neuter services.

If you are in need of financial assistance for medical issues for your pet(s) contact:

1. Shelby at with the SPCA at her work number, (540) 778-2101
