Important Update - Events Postponed

After much deliberation among our Board and Staff, and in keeping with the recommendations of the Department of Health, CDC, and the World Health Organization, it is with heavy hearts that we must announce the indefinite postponement of our annual Dine To Be Kind and Drink To Be Kind events. While we are saddened to postpone these events, we believe it is in the best interest of the community from which we have received so much support.

As many of you know, Dine To Be Kind is our largest fundraiser of the year. This event is absolutely vital to the funding of our lifesaving programs, including Adoptions, Lost & Found, Foster, and Community Solutions. Throughout the weeks and months to come, there will still be animals and owners who need our help. There will be stray dogs, litters of kittens, those who need medical attention, and families who rely on our support. 

In lieu of attending our Dine & Drink To Be Kind events, please consider making a donation matching what you planned to spend dining out to help the animals.



Join us on Tuesday, March 31 for our 17th Annual Dine To Be Kind, a day of dining out to help local animals in need! Participating restaurants will donate a portion of their proceeds to Asheville Humane Society!

Mark your calendar to dine out for breakfast, lunch, dinner...or all three!

And join us on Thursday, April 2 for our 2nd Annual DRINK To Be Kind at participating breweries and bars!

List of participating restaurants coming soon. If you're interested in participating, please contact tbettis[at]ashevillehumane[dot]org.
