We rely on animal lovers just like you to help us with our lifesaving programs. Each year, hundreds of your neighbors donate their time and talent to help us help the animals and they get tremendous personal satisfaction from doing so. We encourage you to join us and become a lifesaving volunteer. Whether you're interested in helping with adoption counseling or socializing kitties, we'd love to have you as part of our Asheville Humane Society volunteer family. Our volunteers tell us they love being a part of our professional, organized volunteer program which outlines different opportunities and matches you with a volunteer opportunity based on your skills and interests. Our appreciative, friendly staff will provide you with all the training you require to succeed as an Asheville Humane Society volunteer. And the animals will provide you with unconditional love every step of your journey with us.

Want to Join Our Pit Crew?
Pit bulls are often misunderstood and discriminated against. Our goal is to bring awareness and action to our community and ensure Asheville is a welcoming community for all dogs. It is our hope that in creating a conversation with citizens of all ages including homeowners, tenants, landlords, neighbors, pit bull enthusiasts, and even the pit bull wary, we can grow a compassionate, conscientious community that promotes responsible pet ownership and no longer discriminates against breeds. Pit Crew is a volunteer advocacy group who serves to bring awareness to our community through events, activities and fundraisers.
Pit Crew volunteers must be Asheville Humane Society volunteers first. Please see how to apply above. If you are already a volunteer you may fill out an application for Pit Crew here. Please send completed applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
