Asheville Humane Society recruiting volunteers and fosters
Asheville, N.C. (WLOS) —
An event at Asheville Humane Society on Tuesday, August 8, 2017 aims to show the community why it needs help at many animal shelters in Western North Carolina.
A volunteer and foster information session will begin at 6 p.m. on August 8 at Asheville Humane Society's Adoption Center. It will include information on opportunities to help and conclude with an optional tour of the animal care campus.
Asheville Humane Society's representatives say the effort is in preparation for Brother Wolf Animal Rescue's plans to close its adoption center and transition to building an animal sanctuary in the Leicester community.
Asheville Humane Society anticipates the impact of the closure will be felt by other animal welfare groups as well, so information on those agencies will also be provided at the information session.
Currently, there are more than 500 animals in the care of Asheville Humane Society.
If adoption is not an option for you, they can help to match you with an animal to foster. You can find out more at info sessions planned for August 8 at 6 p.m., August 19 at 3:30 p.m. or August 31 at 1 p.m.
