Asheville Humane Society

WHAT THEY DO: We don’t stop at adopt. We’re more than an animal shelter — we’re a lifeline. Our programs take a holistic approach to lead the way toward a more compassionate world. Since 1984, we’ve dedicated ourselves to ensuring every animal has the quality of life they deserve — a life worth living. Now, we go beyond our walls to help create a more humane community for pets and the people who love them. From one-on-one adoption counseling to behavior classes, education to ongoing care, we’re here for people and pets far beyond love at first sight.

I can’t put into words how much I appreciate Asheville Humane. They truly care for each and every animal that comes through their doors. I’ve seen firsthand how much dedication they put into finding loving homes for every animal.
