Asheville Humane Society Event Helps Special Needs Pets

It’s a big community effort to help the critters that ends with a big puppy party.

Asheville Humane Society’s 2nd Annual Paw It Forward Campaign presented by Dog Tag Art launched on May 30. The goal is to raise $45,000 for special needs pets. Asheville Humane Society invites you to sign up and campaign for our community’s most vulnerable animals. Supporters can also donate directly to the cause to give these sick and injured pets a second chance. The campaign ends with the Paw It Forward Block Party at Asheville Humane Society on Saturday, June 24 from 5 to 8 pm.

Meredith Pitcairn, communications and digital fundraising manager at Asheville Humane Society, is excited about the life-saving impact this year’s campaign will have on at-risk animals. “In its second year, we want the Paw It Forward Campaign to raise awareness for the shelter pets who need us the most,” said Pitcairn. “With your support, we can make sure every animal in our community has a life worth living.”

In 2016, Asheville Humane Society impacted the lives of 9,250 animals in the community with the help of generous donors and supporters. You can help make 2017 another record-breaking year by making a donation, and by bringing the whole family (pets included) to the Paw It Forward Block Party on June 24. There will be live music by The Clydes, food truck fare from Gypsy Queen Cuisine and Amazing Pizza Co., The Hop ice cream, Oskar Blues beer, an appearance by Tammy and friends at Mix 96.5, and adoptable animals.

The Humane Society is located at 14 Forever Friend Lane, just off of Brevard Road behind Harmony Volkswagen.
