Help us spread love during this holiday season by donating to help local pets in need. During our "Warm Hearts * Full Bellies" Holiday Pet Food and Blanket Drive, we will be collecting donations of wet or dry pet food, new or gently used beds and blankets, pet toys, and/or monetary donations.
It warms our hearts to be able to help local pets in need by supporting organizations who tirelessly work all year to provide care and support to those in need. This year we will be supporting the Asheville Humane Society, Meals on Wheels of Buncombe County, and Asheville Cat Weirdos.
We are collecting donations through Saturday, January 4th. You can drop items off during our normal business hours. We are accepting any canned or dry pet food, gently used or new blankets, pet toys and/or monetary donations at Animal Hospital of North Asheville during normal business hours through January 4th. Drop food or other items off anytime! Hills Science Diet will be donating 1 pound of food for every 10 pounds donated. Please, if donating by check, it must be made out to the organization of your choice (not to Animal Hospital of North Asheville). We will distribute the donations to the Asheville Humane Society, Meals on Wheels, and Asheville Cat Weirdos after the first of the year.
Your donations go to help:
Asheville Humane Society provides medical care, emotional and behavioral support to animals in their adoption center as well as providing programs for the community (pet food and vet assistance, lost and found pet resources, safety net program, low-cost spay and neutering, microchip and vaccine resources). Items of need: pet food, enrichment for cats and dogs, (they have farm animals and small pets too), cleaning supplies- laundry detergents, paper towels, blankets, cat litter, trash bags, treats, peanut butter, Kongs or interactive toys, cardboard tubes, cat toys, cardboard scratching posts and much more.
The mission of Meals on Wheels of Asheville-Buncombe County is to provide hot, nutritious meals to the elderly homebound, thus allowing them to live in their own homes, among familiar surroundings and maintain their dignity while aging. Providing pet food ensures that the elderly are eating their meals and not feeding them to their furry friends. They also don't have to face the possibility of giving up their companions. Items of need: cat food (smaller bags), small and large dog food, cockatiel food and monetary donations.
Asheville Cat Weirdos started as a Facebook group to share the love and photos of cats, but during this process, the organizers realized that there was a need in the cat community for help with unexpected expenses. The Asheville Cat Weirdo Emergency Fund was born. They provide veterinary assistance and cat food assistance. Items of need: cat food, flea medication, and monetary donations.
