Asheville Humane Society (AHS) rescues, reunites, rehabilitates and re-homes thousands of homeless animals each year. We are dedicated to promoting the compassionate treatment of animals in our community through education, sheltering, and adoption. AHS operates the only open-admission shelter in the county. We are here for animals who are lost, surrendered, neglected or mistreated, and who all deserve a loving family of their very own. We provide a soft bed, food, comfort, medical evaluation, medical treatment, vaccinations, and behavioral testing for each. We place all animals who can humanely and safely be adopted into a loving home.
The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will allow Asheville Humane Society to provide veterinary care for senior dogs in our community. In the last six months we have received almost 900 calls to our community Helpline requesting assistance. Many of the requests are for help with senior pets. The needs range from minor medical issues to very serious health concerns. By providing veterinary care for those who might otherwise not be able to afford it, we keep pets out of the shelter and in their homes with the people who love them most.
