Project Yellow: A Dog Safety Project

Screen Shot 2015-12-18 at 4.01.48 PMEver see a dog with a yellow ribbon? That's a signal that the dog needs space on walks -- and it helps keeps pets and their people safe.

In support of "Project Yellow," Asheville Humane Society provides free yellow ribbons for dogs who need space on walks. Come visit the store at the Adoption and Education Center at 14 Forever Lane (off of Brevard and Pond Roads, near the WNC Farmers Market) to get a free yellow ribbon for your pup if you need one.

We should always ask permission to pet someone’s dog or to approach a pet we don’t know. For dogs who need space this is especially important. To signal to others to use caution and give your dog space, you can tie a yellow ribbon on your dog’s leash. Dogs who need yellow ribbons may range from deaf dogs who need to be approached a special way to dogs who are leash-reactive and need space around other dogs. 

If you have questions about Project Yellow, call Asheville Humane Society at (828) 761-2001.
