As you probably know, the Adoption Center is the primary adoption outlet for animals that come through the Buncombe County Animal Shelter. There has been a dramatic increase in the number of animals taken in by the Shelter recently, so Asheville Humane Society is doing everything possible to get them adopted. These are wonderful animals that deserve a loving home.
Although the love of a pet is priceless, all of the following are still included when you adopt! Each adoption fee includes spay/neuter, all up-to-date vaccines, microchip and free 1-year registration, a free starter bag of food, and a free wellness visit with a participating veterinarian.
To see available animals, visit www.ashevillehumane.org. The Adoption Center is located at 14 Forever Friend Lane, Asheville (off Brevard and Pond Roads, near the WNC Farmers Market). It is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM (Tuesdays until 7 PM). The dog and cat rooms are closed daily for naptime from 1 to 2 PM, giving animals a much-needed break. The lobby remains open where you can speak with staff, enjoy refreshments, read or watch videos!
