We're going mobile!
In an effort to combat the spay/neuter crisis in Buncombe Co., and to increase accessibility to low-cost animal care services in the community, Asheville Humane Society is raising money for a Mobile Medical Unit. This unit, primarily to be parked at 14 Forever Friend Lane, will streamline operations, decrease animal stay length, and increase community support. Help us reach our goal of $75,000!

We have received a generous donation of $25,000 to be matched, meaning your contribution is TWICE as impactful!
Asheville Humane Society is committed to ensuring that every companion animal we adopt into the community is spayed/neutered (S/N). However, the demand for S/N appointments is simply too high, meaning animals in our care take up valuable space while waiting for surgery. A longer length of stay for animals leads to overcrowding and overcapacity, increased risk of illness/disease outbreak, and behavioral challenges. We are currently flooded with requests for S/N from the community, with waitlists as long as 3-4 months for community-owned pets.
For these reasons, we are proud to introduce a new mobile medical clinic to address the growing demand for S/N services in Buncombe County.
For the future:
The 37-ft clinic will feature a surgery suite and prep/exam area, allowing for 3,144 surgeries in its first year!
