Asheville Humane Society Announces Adoption Challenge

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.
