Hi, I’m Tesla! I’m a mellow, low energy girl who requires frequent recharging on the couch. Cuddles with my people are my favorite! Between charges, I enjoy going on walks (my foster reports I walk well on a leash!) and rides in the car. Oh, I also live for human treats (mmmm steak!!). Other important details about me: I’m house-trained, prefer adults and older children who are more predictable, and can do well with other dogs who respect my boundaries… or I can be an only child, I’d be happy about that, too! As the people say, make the switch to electric (get it, because my name is Tesla), and I’m sure to become your best couch buddy!


Hello, I’m Eros! I’m quite the character, always exploring my surroundings with a curious eye. I’m independent, so I can keep myself entertained, but I’m also a sweetheart who loves a good cuddle. My intelligence will amaze you, I’m quick to learn new tricks and commands. I’m full of energy and ready for any adventure, be it a walk in the park or a game of fetch. My loyalty is unwavering, I promise to be your faithful companion through thick and thin. I can be a bit touchy when it comes to my hips being touched too much, so older kids are ideal for me. I’m looking for a forever home where I can share my love and zest for life. If you’re looking for a loyal, energetic, and intelligent companion, look no further, I’m your guy!


Hello there, I’m Sadie. I’m a little shy when we first meet, but I promise, I’m the sweetest girl you’ll ever know. New experiences make me a bit nervous, but with some patience and gentle encouragement, I’ll soon find my footing. I enjoy quiet times and I’m pretty independent, but I also love to be around kind-hearted people like you. I might need a moment to warm up to you, but once I do, we’ll be the best of friends. Adopting me means gaining a loyal, loving companion who will cherish every moment we share. Give me a chance, I won’t let you down.


Hi, my name is Harley! I’m a big puppy with a big heart. I like to spend my days napping, playing with some toys or a snuffle mat. I can be a goofball but mostly I’m a pretty laid-back dog, even though much in the world is still new to me. But I’m learning and gaining confidence every day. Right now, I’ll need a home that will be patient with me since I have some anxiety about new things. I am potty trained and crate trained but will really love to just chill inside with my future family. I have also lived with cats and another dog, and we get along great. I don’t mind cats and I like to learn from other dogs. I also have been around kids, and I think they are just wonderful! Thanks for reading about me! I can’t wait to find my forever family and settle in and make memories!


Layla is a five-year-old lab mix currently available for adoption. She looks like she is smiling 24/7. You could not meet a more loyal companion who only wants to be near her human. Layla has NO issue being crated during the day. She’s not a barker. She is learning to walk calmly on a leash. She pulls a lot in the first few minutes but calms down and goes to an average pace afterward. She craves affection as she has spent most of her life outside. She is working on understanding that sitting beside her human is enough, as she will try to get as close to you as possible.

This girl deserves the love she craves. She doesn’t whine or complain, isn’t aggressive, learns tricks in minutes. She’s looking for someone patient to continue teaching her how to walk on a leash more calmly and to reassure her that she is safe that her human will stay with her. Layla will be the most wonderful and loyal companion you could ever ask for. If you’d like to meet this girl, don’t hesitate to contact Harrisonburg Rockingham-Harrisonburg SPCA.


Meet Coco! This girl may come off as shy at first, but don’t let that fool you! Coco loves to love! Coco is looking for someone to show her that the world isn’t as scary as she makes it out to be. She warms up quickly to new people and shows her goofy, energetic personality. She’s done well around children, but due to her being a bit nervouse, she would do best in a home with older children or children who display a lever of understanding or knowledge on how to respectfully interact with dogs. She said to be crate trained, housebroken and has done well interacting with dogs. She loves car rides, playing with toys or with her people and being a part of anything you do, even if its just staring at you. If you’re interested in meeting Coco, come to the shelter today!


This funky looking dude is Melvin! He has some specific requests for his next home. If you know the infectious spirit or shepherds or huskies you will love Melvin. He needs a home with no small critters. That means no cats, tiny dogs (under 40lbs), or little humans (under 13 years old if children are present). Melvin is not the type for a first time dog owner. If you’ve had a shepherd or husky before you’ll know… they take a special person to set them up for a lifetime of success but can be great companions. Particularly if you have experience training a dog with behavioral needs before, you may be a great fit to ensure he never finds himself bored. Melvin is not the type that enjoys the cooped up lifestyle of an apartment or condo so his adopter must live in a house. If you are looking for a neat addition to your home and think it is the right one for Melvin, please submit an application!


**This animal is not available for adoption.**

This dog was found on Orkney Springs Rd and Deer Lick Ln, Broadway, VA, 22815 on 03/20/2024. She was found with no forms of identification


Hello, my name is Princess! I am looking for a new castle to take charge of with my #girl-boss attitude. I love to go for jogs through the forests and spend time with my people. I am looking for a kingdom with no little children as they make me nervous. I enjoy playing with other dogs and learning new tricks. Visit the RHSPCA today if you think we would be a magical pairing!


Meet Flint! He is looking for a very particular type of home to help him excel. He is an active boy and would love a house with a yard to play in. Flint can be nervous around new people so would not be a good apartment or condo dog. And as such he would do best in a home with older kids (13 years or older if kids are present). However, he is learning how to trust people with the help of the staff and volunteers at the shelter and has already come a long way. Flint can be a bit of a scaredy cat sometimes (he is literally scared of cats) so if you have dog-savvy cats in your home he would need a very slow introduction but would likely be okay with them. As for his dog friends, he prefers dogs his size (about 40lbs or larger). Prior dog owning experience is a must, and those with GSD breed experience and/or training experience would be well equipped to handle a dog like Flint. He is treat motivated and already knows a few tricks such as “sit” and “down”. If you think Flint would be a good fit for you, please submit an application!
