Special Pets For Special People

Oliver was a victim of animal abuse. He was adopted by a nice man who doesn't mind that Oliver only has one eye.

We are seeking someone special and it could be you!

Thanks to generous donors, compassionate foster parents, and dedicated staff, we’re able to save lives of special needs animals. These pets might require mobility assistance, extra medicines, or a home without children or other pets. They might be elderly, handicapped, or suffer from a chronic health condition. Some may simply be harder to re-home. Although these pets may take more time, attention, or care, we know they're worth it.

These pets deserve a special someone to love them.

Could it be you?

If you’re willing to open your heart and home to one of our special needs pets, please contact our Adoption Services Director, Pam Burgess, at adoptions@ashevillehumane.org.



One look at Pepsi and you know there is something special about her.  Just look into those eyes..WOW...saying she is merely a pretty cat is an understatement.  Pepsi at 10 years of age is looking for a new beginning.  She lived with her previous family from the time she was 3 months old.  However, she started having problems with blood showing up in her urine and bladder issues. Then she started having bathroom accidents and the owner was told it was behavioral and decided she could no longer keep her.  

We have run extensive test and blood work on Pepsi and currently she is doing well and no urine issues. She will need to be kept on Science Diet CD to help prevent any bladder stones from reappearing.  Pepsi lived with other cats, dogs and children which may have contributed to her potty issues; therefore, we recommend that she go to a home without other pets or smaller children.  While she has been in our care there has been no accidents or any behavior that would lead us to believe she wouldn't she her litter box.

If you are looking for a very loving, sweet and affectionate feline for company, please consider giving Pepsi a visit, we know she will steal your heart!!
