To better serve the animals in our care, while keeping the safety of our staff and visitors a priority, we are discontinuing appointment-only adoptions and opening our doors to a limited number of walk-ins at a time to meet our adoptable pets!
With over 370 cats and kittens currently in our care (in our Shelter, Adoption Center and foster homes) we are still OVERFLOWING with felines in need!!! To help make space and save lives, we are also *EXTENDING* our fee-waived promotion for all felines through September 30th!!
Adoption fees for all canines will be $10!
If you can't adopt, please spread the word!
NEW ADOPTION PROCEDURE:
A set number of customers will be welcomed inside to adopt on a first come, first served basis. Safety protocols such as masks required, contactless temperature readings and social distancing within the building will remain the same. If the building reaches our set capacity, potential adopters will have socially distant options available to wait until the next spot opens.
Our hours of operation are Tuesday - Saturday, 10 am - 6 pm, with animal naptime each day from 1-2 pm.
We humbly ask in advance for your patience and understanding, as facilitating adoptions during COVID-19 times is an ongoing learning experience for everyone! We are trying to find the balance between helping the animals who rely on us, while ensuring the continued safety and health of Asheville Humane Society's adopters, volunteers and staff.
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).
