*Temporarily Closed*

In alignment with Buncombe County's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" declaration, related to COVID-19, effective Friday, March 27, 2020, Asheville Humane Society's Adoption Center and the Buncombe County Animal Shelter will be closed to the public through April 8, 2020, unless rescinded earlier or extended further by Buncombe County or the state of North Carolina.  
 
Be assured that we will have essential staff available to feed, clean, and provide enrichment for the animals currently in our care. While we continue our commitment to the people and animals of Buncombe County, we see the importance of limiting face-to-face interactions and complying with all aspects of this declaration. 
 

What does this mean for our community?

All animals in our Adoption Center come from the Buncombe County Animal Shelter located next door. Each day we transfer in as many as possible to re-home.

In addition to puppies, kittens, dogs and cats, we also offer various small mammals as pets including rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, and ferrets.

While awaiting their new homes, animals in our Adoption Center are housed in state-of-the-art condos with plenty of enrichment items including toys, comfy blankets and beds.

Our Adoption Center is a warm, welcoming environment that offers get acquainted rooms and exercise yards so you can visit with the animals that capture your heart.

Our professional Adoption Counselors provide one-on-one counseling so you can select a pet that meets your expectations and lifestyle.

We have two goals at our Adoption and Education Center: to save lives and match you with the love of your life.

We look forward to meeting you and connecting you with an animal who is waiting for you!

Thank you for helping us save lives of homeless animals. Together, as a community of animal lovers, we can eliminate animal homelessness.
