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.


3 legs, a 2nd chance, the 1 for you!

Beverly is such a sweet girl! Due to some chronic pain, she had her back leg amputated, but it hasn't crushed her spirit at all. She loves to play with anyone around her, and she will wait all day just to cuddle with you at night. She really needs to be in a family that could have her as the only cat; she isn't very fond of other kitties, but you wouldn't guess it when she is alone. She is great with new people and warms up very quickly. Her favorite things are snuggling on your lap, eating tuna flavored cat treats, and hopping around the house! She is easy to fall in love with, and would love to find the perfect family to call her own. (Lauren & Gilbert, Foster Parents)
