Welcome to the Buncombe County Animal Shelter, one of the nicest and newest animal sheltering facilities in the Country. This modern facility is located on the Buncombe County Animal Care Campus adjacent to Asheville Humane Society’s Adoption and Education Center. The Animal Care Campus facilities opened to the public on September 14, 2010.
Since 1990 Asheville Humane Society animal care professionals have operated the Buncombe County Animal Shelter operations under contracts with Buncombe County and City of Asheville. This public/private partnership devoted to animal welfare is becoming a model for other communities across the nation.
