Asheville Humane Society Announces Adoption Challenge

5dollarfelines

September is historically the slowest month for adoptions and one of the busiest months in terms of animals in the care of Asheville Humane Society. In order to find homes for all the cats and kittens who need a second chance, Asheville Humane Society is dropping adoption fees to just $5.00 for five weeks. From September 2 - October 4, the challenge is to exceed the number of felines' lives saved over last September's adoption total of 145 feline adoptions.
The reduced adoption fee of $5.00 represents an exceptional value. All adoptions include spaying/neutering, current vaccines, medical and behavioral screening, microchipping, a free starter bag of food, one month of complimentary pet health insurance, and a free post-adoption veterinary office visit with a participating veterinarian. The reduced fee applies to cats and kittens of all ages.

Adoptable Pet of the Week: Ferrari

Adoptable Pet of the Week: Ferrari

Meet Ferrari! This beautiful, petite lady came to Asheville Humane Society nursing four kittens - all orange! She and her babies were cared for in a loving foster home until it was time for adoption. Ferrari is shy and timid, and prefers to find a quiet spot to observe the activities going on around her. She enjoys gentle petting and needs a quiet home to come out of her shell. Earning her trust will take a little time, but we know this stunning mama is worth it! Ferrari does like the company of other kitties. All cats and kittens are FEE-WAIVED through August 2nd, to make room for **over 200 kittens** who are currently in foster care. We would love to see Ferrari out of the busy Adoption Center and into a peaceful, forever home! Is this blue-eyed girl the one for you?

Adoptable Pet of the Week: Keeper

Adoptable Pet of the Week: Keeper

Meet Keeper! He is a one and a half year old Vizsla Mix. If we could pick one word to describe this energetic guy, it would be FUN! Keeper is favorite pick for the Humane Society's Hiking Hounds and Urban Tails programs, in which volunteers take adoptable dogs out and about on hikes. He offers the best of both worlds... after an adventurous day of hiking, he would be a sweet boy to enjoy a quiet evening with you. Keeper is very smart and would love a person who would work with him on training, tricks or agility. He already knows sit and down! He even enjoys the company of his other dog “roommates” here in the Adoption Center. Keeper is a fantastic dog who has been with us for quite a while, just because he keeps getting overlooked. Please give him a chance and we know you’ll fall in love!
