Make A Donation To Help Save Lives

We save the lives of more than 6,111 animals each year. We rely on private donations to provide these helpless, homeless animals with their second chance.

We receive no federal, state, or local government funding for our lifesaving medical and rehabilitative programs. Our Adoption and Education Center operates solely on private donations. 

Please consider making a donation today.


Asheville Humane Society has earned the highest rating, FOUR STARS, from Charity Navigator, Americaís premier charity evaluator. For every dollar raised, over 85% is spent directly on lifesaving programs.
