Asheville Humane Society (AHS) rescues, reunites, rehabilitates and re-homes thousands of homeless animals each year. We are dedicated to promoting the compassionate treatment of animals in our community through education, sheltering, and adoption. AHS operates the only open-admission shelter in the county. We are here for animals who are lost, surrendered, neglected or mistreated, and who all deserve a loving family of their very own. We provide a soft bed, food, comfort, medical evaluation, medical treatment, vaccinations, and behavioral testing for each. We place all animals who can humanely and safely be adopted into a loving home.
The Grey Muzzle Organization support allows Asheville Humane Society to provide critical veterinary care for senior dogs in their community. By providing veterinary care for those who might otherwise not be able to afford it, they keep pets out of the shelter and in their homes with the people who love them most. GMO also helps AHS provide Adoption Care Packages for senior dogs waiting for their forever homes. The packages often include needed medication, veterinary or behavior vouchers, or prescription food to help adopters willing to care for a senior dog.
