Put your best paw forward by joining fellow animal lovers at the premier charity gala of the season! 

Taste of Compassion

Asheville Humane Society's "Barkeasy"

Step back in time to Asheville of the 1920's for a rousing night at the Speakeasy, where you will enjoy local cuisine, craft beer, cider, and wine.

Shake a leg to live music while bidding on exclusive experiences and one-of-a-kind items. Come dolled up or decked out (if you wish) in your snazziest 1920's themed attire.

For those of you who want the red carpet treatment, VIP tickets can be purchased for the pre-gala party from 5-6pm. VIP guests will be greeted with champagne, offered hors d'oeuvres by Smoky Park Supper Club, and will have the first opportunity to bid on auction packages. The V.I.Paw lounge and bar, serving superior wine selections, is exclusive to these guests.
