Asheville Humane Society

WHAT THEY DO: We’re about hope, not heartache. As Buncombe County’s critical safety net since 1984, we are always here to save and protect every animal. We have mastered the art of saving lives within our walls, and now we are going even further, helping our community’s pets and their people thrive together. We are going beyond a no-kill community to ensure that each animal has the quality of life they deserve – a life worth living.


  • Asheville Humane Society will offer a $25 adoption-fee credit for every donation of $25 or more.


  • The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina will match your contribution to any of the 2020 Give!Local animal welfare organizations. CFWNC’s total contribution is limited to $7,000.
I know that I am helping an organization that cares deeply for the animals of our community and works tirelessly themselves to provide health, safety and happiness to all of the animals in their care. ... I am thrilled to be a small part of that work.
