Trapped, Neutered/Vaccinated, and Released back to their colony at participating citizens’ property with continual access to food, water and shelter! Our partnership/mentorship will be with the Watauga Humane Society and their successful Community Cat Program!

Ashe Humane Society is a private rescue without a government contract. On 8/20/19 we obtained our shelter license from the NC Department of Agriculture. Due to the license restrictions and costs we will be able to house a limited amount of cats only (not dogs or any other animals) at our facility.

Ashe County Animal Control is fortunate to have two dozen rescues and shelters that save their adoptable dogs regularly so our focus has become saving cats and kittens in our county. With our license granted, we will continue to pull cats only from Ashe County Animal Control.

We will not take owner surrenders on a regular basis. If in fact we have no one to pull from animal control, we will make an announcement about having space for owner surrenders. At no time will we take cats brought to our facility without pre-approval. 

By North Carolina law and Ashe County ordinance, all stray animals must go to Ashe County Animal Control.
