About Us...

On May 1, 2023 the Ashe Humane Society became a foster home-based rescue that intakes in-danger animals from Ashe County Animal Control only. We no longer have a building nor a shelter and do not take stray animals nor feral cats.

Our new Spay/Neuter Financial Assistance Program and the new Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return Feral Cat Finaicial Assistance Program started in August 2023!! 

We sold our building in July 2023 in order to use the proceeds to better serve our community with these new programs and help all pets and community cats!!
