Screen Shot 2017-10-18 at 9.31.43 AM
Adopting a dog or cat just got ten times better -- because now through October 31, every animal 6 months or older is available at the Asheville Humane Society Adoption Center for just $10!

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!

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

StuartmilesfdpOctober... month of cooler temeperatures, turning leaves, pumpkins, Halloween... and shelter dogs! October is the official national "Adopt a Shelter Dog" month, designated by the ASPCA and the American Humane Association. It's a good time to remember that you can find your best friend at an animal shelter.

According to the American Humane Association:

"If you’re thinking about getting a dog, be a hero and consider adopting a rescue animal or a dog from your local shelter. You’ll be saving a life and greatly improving yours. Dogs are amazing, supportive, and heroic companions who can make a huge difference in your world as a best friend, an exercise buddy, someone who can be trained to provide animal-assisted therapy and help those with challenges they may face, or simply be a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work.

Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality — all waiting for a loving home. Or if you prefer a particular breed that isn’t currently available at a shelter, go online to find a legitimate breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters like you."

So adopt a shelter dog this month if you can, and if not, encourage a family member or friend to do so!
