Join Us For One Of The Hottest Events of the Year: Asheville Humane Society's Taste of Compassion.

Join fellow animal lovers for the 15th Anniversary of Asheville Humane Society’s Taste of Compassion Auction & Gala!  Dress in your most elegant attire (black tie optional) for a fun-filled night complete with amazing vegan/vegetarian cuisine and libations, silent and live auctions, and dancing to the musical stylings of five-star rated DJ P-LO!

For those who want the red carpet treatment, VIP Ticket holders have access to VIP Pre-Gala Reception from 5:30-6:30 PM! Mingle with members of Asheville Humane Society's Board of Directors, and Leadership Circle Members. Plant's very own Chef Jason Sellers will be providing a surprise selection of his award-winning cuisine for VIP guests during the Pre-Gala Reception. Prepare your taste buds for vegan perfection! VIP guests will also have the first opportunity to bid on auction packages. There are a limited number of VIP tickets available, and they're selling fast!

Animal Hospital of North Asheville is a proud sponsor of Asheville Humane Society's Taste of Compassion. We appreciate and support the work that Asheville Humane Society does to save and improve the lives of our local homeless pets. Asheville Humane Society never turns away a needy or homeless animal from our community. They take in the injured and the hard to place, both young and old. Asheville Humane Society gives animals in Buncombe County a chance for a better life.

Help raise money for the Asheville Humane Society by bidding on one-of-a-kind items and experiences during the silent and live auctions, including the 2019 Outback from Prestige Subaru! Proceeds go to helping animals in need by providing food, shelter, medical care, a chance for finding a forever family along with community outreach programs. Get a full preview of the Silent Auction items HERE!

The night wouldn't be complete without some furry VIPs (Very Important Pets)! "WNC Pet of the Year" photo contest winner, Joy, will be making an appearance! Read Joy's triumphant "tail" of survival here!  ​
