If you're looking to add a new four-legged member to your family, look no further than the Asheville Humane Society. They have plenty of adoptable dogs, cats, and other animals currently in need of a good home. Plus, when you adopt from the AHS, not only are you saving a life, but all relevant pets have been spayed/neutered and received their shots. Many have even received basic training.
While you can check out their website, ashevillehumane.org, to see all of the pets available for adoption, they recommend you visit the shelter at 14 Forever Friend Lane to get a view of their true personalities. For more information you can give them a call at 828.761.2001.
