Hey peeps,
My name is Blinken and I've lived a peaceful life - until now. My sister and I tolerated (lived with) the humans for many years in the dungeon (basement), hiding out from the foreign monsters (dogs) when our first human couldn't care for us any more. My sister of 12 years died recently and I'm left all alone. The humans have tried to integrate me into the castle but those awful monsters hate me - I don't know why. I've never so much as batted them in the nose! I'm a very social cat (the V-E-T even said so), 12 years old and need a home without monsters (dogs). I love the laps of humans and even some scratching behind the ears. I am an indoor cat, don't scratch the furniture and use a litter box quite well. Please help me find a good retirement domicile. (extra points if you know where we got our names!)

This sweet girl came from Tennessee, and was with the same family for her whole life up until now. She happily lived with two small children, another northern breed and a cat. Due to her breed, she is high energy and requires patience. However, she is wicked smart and has the sweetest personality, and is crate trained.

Hi! My name is Jubilee or Juby for short. I am a brindle Plott Hound mix and weigh about 40 lbs. I am about 3 yrs old.

I am crate trained and working on being house-trained. I am a little afraid of the dark so I like someone to go out with me when it is dark. I am good with cats, children, and REALLY enjoy the company of other dogs!

My family loves me and they want the best for me and being in a crate most of the day isn't ideal.

My human says I am good on a leash and she loves to kiss my long soft ears! She likes to talk sweet in my ears too because I wimper sweetly back to her.

Oh.....I know sit, and can give high five!

Meow,
My name is Kibbles and I am adorable (if I do say so myself!)
I was born in Virginia Beach about 11 years ago, and was rescued by my mom, Danielle, when I was just 5 weeks old! My mom is such an angel and she took really good care of me. We moved to Asheville in 2010. I have lived here with my mom and gramma. Mom moved on to Maine a few years ago, and now Gramma Dayle is moving to Maine so I am looking for a new home here. I really don’t think, at my senior age, I could adapt to the winters in New England. My mom and gramma are sad to leave me, but they know it’s best for me.
I spend most of my time outdoors because that ‘litter box’ thing is not my style. I prefer grass and dirt. I love to lay in the sunshine all day long! I eat twice a day, breakfast and supper, and just have your basic dry stuff and wet stuff from a can. Gramma has tried other foods, and even treats, but I’m just not interested in anything fancy. My favorite thing to do in the summer time is visit humans on the porch when they have sandals or even naked feet and give gentle love bites to their toes! I think the humans like it, too. I really am quite easy to have around. Feed me, pet me (sometimes, if I’m in the mood), and have some kind of place for me to get out of the rain or cold. My gramma has a garage/basement for me to come in if I need to. I’m really great at chasing and catching mice and those little vole things in the ground, and I keep the neighborhood cats at bay. I think they refer to me as the neighborhood Watchcat!
So would you consider having me as your Watchcat at your home? Right now we live in West Asheville. Gramma thinks something in another area (maybe 5-10 miles away from West Asheville) would be best so I’m not tempted to come back to the house we live in now.
Gramma is leaving November 15th (I’m sad but I know she’ll be fine!) and would like me to be in my new home by the 11th.
Thanks for reading all about me!
This is Kibbles, saying Meow!
PS~~I travel light but will bring my food with me, and my favorite pillow and blanket from the garage/basement.

Hi, my name is Foxy. I am a good looking, lovable, energetic, playful, healthy, adult Treeing Walker Coonhound. I was rescued by my owner when I was 1 year old, and now I am 9 years, going on 5. I am spayed and up to date on all of my shots. I love staying at the kennel when my parents go out of town, I’m house trained, and I love to play. I need to find a new home because there is now a toddler in our house, and I am not crazy about little kids.

I currently live on 5 acres in Black Mountain with three other dogs and two miniature goats. I get along well with all of them, and most dogs that I meet, but when my status as alpha is challenged I am not afraid to establish my role as queen. Also, I am not a fan of cats - they are fun to chase.

Running free through the woods, chasing rabbits, raccoons and possums is my favorite activity, but I also enjoy lounging for extended periods of time. I will run through an invisible fence, so I would need a hardscape fence to keep me contained, or I would do well in a house with daily leash walks. My family loves me very much, and has basically had to decide between me and the baby. I have lots of love to give and would make a great addition to a household with kids who are old enough to understand how to give me my own space.

Sophie is a fun, smart little dog (around 1.5 years old and around 20 pounds). She has grown up around all kinds of people, children, other dogs and cats. Sophie has lots of energy and would do best with an active family who can spend lots of time with her and will keep her active. She would be a great hiking or running buddy, or an excellent agility dog and would do best with a fenced yard. She would love to be in a home with human and/or furry friends as well!

Hatchi is an exuberant and happy-go-lucky guy, and unfortunately his family's landlord is forcing them to re-home him. He is extremely sweet and already knows how to sit and shake hands! Due to his large size (probably over 100 pounds) he would do best in a home with a family willing to work with him on manners and take him hiking, biking, running, etc, as well as with a doggie playmate! He gets along great with other dogs and children, and has never been around cats or farm animals. Hatchi is a sweetheart and would love to find his forever home!

The "Sky" is the limit for the amount of love this sweet girl has to give!
Sky is a beautiful spayed female pit bull terrier who is searching for a family to love. She enjoys the company of mellow dogs, and would do well in a home with other dogs if they get to meet first to see if it's a good fit.
Sky might look tough but she is a softie who loves attention, treats and to give hugs.

We have had our beloved dogs, purebred yellow lab sisters Caroline and Maddie, for almost 9 years now. They will be 9 in November. Through birth and adoption, we have added three kids to our family in the past three years. At this point, we feel like the quality of life that we are able to give Caroline and Maddie is less than what they deserve, and we are looking to rehome them. They would make great family pets to a family (or individual) who is able to provide them the attention and space and exercise they deserve. Being older, they are certainly less energetic than they once were, but they are still LABS and love to run, walk, and play. They are obviously house trained (that would've been a long nine years) and well-behaved. They get along with other dogs and would be fine around children. We are willing to separate them (and believe they would be perfectly fine with it), if that worked for someone. Please understand this has been a difficult decision and NOT one that has been taken lightly. We really do feel like we want the best for our pups, and simply don't feel like we are able to provide them with that.

(I can only upload one photo to this site but am happy to send more of both dogs if interested)

Hi, I'm Starla! I am one of the sweetest girls you will ever meet. I love my people and I love to show it! I am cuddly and enjoying shaking hands/paws. I have never had an accident in the house and I'm also crate-trained. I am looking to be someone's only pet - I get jealous of others when I am not the center of attention because I have so much love to give. But don't worry, once you meet me, you'll realize that I have enough personality to fill both a home and a heart.

Pippi is about 3 years old, she is spayed and up to date on shots and heart worm preventative. She is only 12 pounds and is well behaved. Pip is super friendly and enjoys meeting other dogs.....they just can't live in the same space/yard. She would do well with someone who is active. She loves to hike and would do great as an agility dog. She has been fine with cats and seems to enjoy kids.

Please email with questions or if you would like to meet Pip.

Don't be fooled by his regal appearance, Apache is far from standoffish and loves attention. This handsome boy was found as a stray but has quickly adjusted to a household of cat companions, and would do well in a home with other cats. Apache is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations and ready for his new home! Call or text for more information about Apache.

Sweet little Lucy was surrendered for behavior issues by her previous owner. But after a full veterinary check up, it turns out Lucy's issues were related to environmental stress! Lucy is now symptom-free but is mostly confined to a small kennel at our vet hospital. Do you know someone needing a companion? Lucy is an excellent conversationalist and very loving with people. However, too many noises and changes in her environment are stressful to her. We are looking for a quiet home without young children or dogs where Lucy can be the wonderful cat we all know she is! She is small and very friendly so we feel she would likely make a great companion for someone living alone. Head butts, purring, and long chats are her specialty. She is up to date on her vaccines and has no adoption fee to the right home!

Hello,

Gabriella is a 7-year-old, spayed female tabby. She answers to "Gabby." You've never met a kitty like her.
She's opinionated. Need a pep talk? You got it. Unsolicited advice? She won't hold her tongue.

She's loyal. Gabby is right there, underfoot, and by your side. She misses her mum, who passed away last week, but she has a heart full of love to give you.

She's silly. You won't find any sillier. She brushes her own face, noshes on coconut butter, and loves being sung to--the sillier the song, the better.

Gabby is current on her vaccinations, can play responsibly outdoors, and is catnip-free.

Please help her find her her forever home.

Our sweet Merlin is one of the chillest cats you'll ever meet. He will let you know when his food bowl is empty, other than that he will come lay on your lap, walk outside and nap most of the time. He and his mate Mishi have been together for all his life, and he has never lived with any other pets. We do not know how they would adapt, but they need to be adopted together by a loving family. If our circumstances were not so difficult we would never give them up. We are hoping maybe a good family will find him here. We would love to stay in touch and pay some towards their expenses.

Mishi is a super sweet, beautiful calico with the typical frisky calico attitude. She lives inside primarily but will go out for a few hours at a time. Once she loves you she will give you hugs and kisses forever (unless you are the vet :)) Also likes long naps in her corner. She and her brother from another mother Merlin have been together for over a decade and have never lived with any other animals. We do not know how they would adapt. We love her and if our situation did not force us would never consider giving them up.

Sweet Rosie is a 5 year old medium sized mixed breed who loves all people, even kids! According to her owner, Rosie knows extensive commands including, sit, down, stay, wait, leave it, and high five! She loves chasing tennis balls, and would probably make a great hiking companion. During walks on leash she generally just ignores other dogs. Rosie is currently living at Happy Tails Country Club until she finds a home of her own. She was unable to stay in her previous home because she and the older female dog were not getting along (scuffles, but no injuries). At Happy Tails, Rosie is around large groups of dogs for 10 hours a day and does just fine. She would probably do well with a male dog companion, or as the only dog in a family. She has lived with a cat, but did enjoy chasing it occasionally.

If you would like to meet Rosie or get more information, give Happy Tails Country Club a call at 828-628-8510 or email us at info@happytailscc.com

This dark red tiger neutered boy, probably around a year old, belonged to renters next door to my sister where he was an inside/outside cat. Unfortunately, they moved and left him behind. He upsets her cats and two of them are aggressive toward him and have been in scuffles with him. She has had to repair her cat containment fence several times where he has torn it trying to get in/out, coming in to get food. He doesn't understand what has happened. He learned how to use her pet door to get into her house. It is obvious he just wants to be loved and have a secure home. We feel sorry for him but have no way to keep him. The owner of the rental house paid to have him neutered and given a Rabies vaccine (done on 5/10/17). He also tested negative for FeLuk and Heartworm but tested positive for FIV. He is currently in my sister's house since he obviously could not be turned back outside, but she cannot keep him past next week. She has 8 cats, and needs 3 separations among them when not home because of bullying, and she has limited air conditioning in her home and cannot keep the cat in an un-air-conditioned room. Please help us if at all possible.

Hello!

My name is Marshall and I am a handsome male, ten year old orange tabby. I was a rescue from Marshall, NC, hence the name. My parents have had me since I was a kitten, but since adding a baby human to the mix, I’ve had a hard time adjusting. I would love to find a nice, quiet home where I can get lots of love and attention.

I love to nap upstairs and downstairs. Also out in the sunroom or by any big window. Napping is very important to me and I take it seriously. I also love to eat and if I had it my way, would eat all the time. Sometimes my parents joke that my name should be Garfield. I’m up to date on all of my vaccinations and neutered. I would do best in a home with no other pets or small children – these things bring out my grumpy side. But once you get to know me I am the purrfect lap kitty. There’s nothing more I love to do than curl up in your lap and purr the afternoon away.

Overall, I’m in great health and very laid back. If you’re looking for a snuggle buddy for those lazy summer days or cold mountain nights, I’m your kitty.

Kale is a shepherd mix who weighs approximately 45 pounds. He will be 5 years old this spring. He is energetic and a great outdoor companion for hiking, jogging, etc. When you bring him inside he wants nothing more than to cuddle up with a nice pillow. He cannot be in a home with cats or other small animals, he has a very strong prey drive (he does fine with chickens though). He currently lives in a home with another dog his size, however he is very dominant and can be food aggressive. For this reason we would like him to find a home where he is the only animal. He is tolerant of small children, but much prefers older ones - he loves to run and jump and play ball. He is neutered, up to date on all of his shots and has no medical conditions. He will come with his crate, dog bed, leash and food container.

PLEASE Adopt this amazing cat! I don't want to have to surrender her. Lucy is one of the smartest cats I've owned and therefore has a lot of personality. She even goes on hikes with us! I got her when she was a kitten. She had tons of energy and would bound around the house. As she grew, so did her personality. She did quirky things, like take naps in the bathroom sink and hide when she would hear me coming, only to bound out at me when I entered the room. She used to follow me around the house. She was my little companion. Not your typical lap cat, but that is what I loved about her. You would feel really special when she did decide to cozy up. But you can't pet her for too long, or she may turn and snap. All of these things were fine, until I had kids. At one point, when her claw got stuck in my child's earlobe, we decided she needed to be an outdoor cat. But unfortunately, she wants inside so bad. So she claws at the windows and hurls herself against the doors. We tried letting her in just at night, but my husband didn't want her in the bed with us and so she just continued her shenanigans to try to get in the room with us. The result was she would wake us up and sometimes our kids. Adding on to the sleep deprivation already experienced by having kids, is just unacceptable to us at this point in our lives. Before having kids, it was never a problem. I don't remember being woken up by her and if I was, I was able to go back to sleep. Unlike if she wakes up a 2 year old! Then everyone is up. She really is a great cat and I was extremely fond of her. But now, my kids and my sleep are the most important things and Lucy is, sadly, a bit unloved. I'm really hoping someone can take her and give her a better life. She wants to be indoor/outdoor and is not satisfied with just one or the other. She is a pretty good mouser. We've never had any other pets, so she is territorial and doesn't like other animals. But this is probably something she could get used to. Since she has been committed to the outdoors, we have to keep her food out there and it is attracting other neighborhood animals.
