Bunny is around 6 years old, 46 lbs, spayed, up to date on her shots, and besides a couple of teeth that will be treated soon, she received a clean bill of health from a vet visit on 12/11/17.

Bunny is house trained, crate trained, walks well on a leash, rides well in the car, and LOVES people. Bunny would do best in a home where she is the only dog.

Calypso is 8 years old. She currently lives with two small dogs and she has lived with several cats in the recent past. Due to a severe allergy that one of our family members has developed, we are looking for a new home where she will be treated well and be loved in all the ways she deserves. Calypso is a fairly quiet cat who loves to snuggle and loves to be loved. Although she can be shy at first, she is full of life and still loves to play if engaged by a human. Now and then we catch her playing with one of the dog's balls or racing throughout the house bouncing from room to room. She loves people and she's always happy to cozy up to her human. She is great with the litter box and she does not scratch furniture or floors.

Murphy (grey kitty) and Manny (black kitty) were adopted by my mother and stepfather when they were little kittens at the animal shelter. They are now 8 years old and since that time, my stepfather has passed away and my mother has moved in with us. She travels between Illinois and NC quite a bit, leaving the boys alone in their apartment for months on end. I have asthma and can do no more than feed and quickly clean their box. They deserve a better home than this. My mom has made the difficult decision to place them. Murphy was a favorite of my 5-year-old niece who dragged him around everywhere. Murphy was happy to play along and adored "his" little girl. Manny is the big cuddler and is quite vocal about attention (and getting food). They are both playful and active cats but have always lived indoors. They have not been around dogs much although they glommed onto one of my goldens like he was a long-lost friend. The others they are cautious. Both are UTD on shots and neutered. Animal Hospital at Reems Creek has been their vet practice for the last 5 years. We would like to see them stay together. Please consider giving them a good home. They come with their cat carriers, litter boxes, toys and a cat tree.

My name is Stella Blue and I'm about 3 years old. I was rescued one night in May 2016 running down Town Mountain Road. At that time I was in heat and running away from male dogs. There are scars on my legs and a few on my body and I'm not able to tell you what happened, but the Vet thinks it was likely barbed wire. I was brought to the humane society were my owners found me online, but due to a health crisis in the family they decided to surrender me. The peeps who found me decided to adopt me once I was spayed and vaccinated. They gave me shelter, love and an older sister. However, after a year and a half my older sister became aggressive. I was attacked by her on two occasions. My humans hired a behaviorist to work on her aggression. However, she attacked me again and it was much more vicious. The behaviorist and Vet advised that for my safety it would be best to find a new home. Sometimes the first attack is a fluke, but by the third it becomes a pattern.

About me! I would describe myself as Sweet and Loving, ! I'm fully house trained and will let you know when I have to go out. I'm really good on a leash and don't pull. Also, I'm a great hiker and trail companion. I do not jump on the furniture or bed unless invited. Also, I wait for you before going thru doorways. I don't have any tricks, but sit on command and love to play fetch with my toys. Adults, older kids and cats are good for me. I love the car, but can be stubborn about getting out, I'm working on it!

My humans want you to know how much they love me. It's breaking their hearts to come to this decision. The older dog would be too difficult to rehome. I am resilient and will be a great addition to your home!!

LOKI
Looking for a Forever home! Recently had to move into a smaller home with two cats and two huskies. It has become extremely challenging to keep the cats and dogs separated in the smaller home and need to rehome both cats as soon as possible for their safety. I have tried managing the situation for a while now because I don’t want to give them up, but it’s in their best interest. You can follow them on Instagram for additional photos and video. Their profile can be found under the username loki_and_lucy_2017.

Loki is an indoor/outdoor tabby cat that is 3 1/2 years old and weighs approximately 7 lbs. He would love to be able to play and hunt outside during the day, and then come indoors in the evening to eat and snuggle with you. He’s a great lap cat. If you garden, he will keep you company and even help dig! He’s capable of defending himself and does well with cat friendly dogs. I don't believe he would do well with another cat other than Lucy. Loki’s sibling Lucy is also up for adoption. They’re great playmates and definitely love each other. I would prefer for them to be adopted together, but am willing for them to be adopted separately. Please refer to Lucy’s profile for additional information. Loki has been neutered and is up to date on his shots. He’s in excellent health. Glad to provide office visit records.

LUCY
Looking for a Forever home for Lucy! Recently had to move into a smaller home with two cats and two huskies. It has become extremely challenging to keep the cats and dogs separated in the smaller home and need to rehome both cats as soon as possible for their safety.

Their profile can be found under the username loki_and_lucy_2017.

Lucy is 3 years old and very petite (~5 lbs). Her coat is white with black dots. She is strictly an indoor cat, extremely submissive and does not defend herself against dogs. The only paw she’s ever raised is when she’s playing with my other cat. She’s a bit of a hippy kitty and a very sweet little girl. Lucy’s sibling Loki is also up for adoption. They’re great playmates and definitely love each other. I would prefer for them to be adopted together, but am willing for them to be adopted separately. Lucy would go well with cat friendly dogs and non-aggressive cats. Please refer to Loki’s profile for additional pictures and information. Lucy has been spayed and is up to date on her shots. She’s in excellent health. Glad to provide office visit records.

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.

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.

My family needs to downsize and I would love to be able to receive a little more attention and exercise. I'm a great listener and also a great lover. I need to be fed a grain-free diet and would prefer a homeowner with a fenced-in yard. Please consider adding me to your family!

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.
If you are interested in Sky and would like to find out more about her, please contact Brenda at 828-772-4438

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 need to be fed a grain-free diet and a homeowner with a fenced-in yard. 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, Oreo Keebler 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. Oreo Keebler is neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on his vaccinations and ready for his new home! Call or text for more information about Oreo Keebler.

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.

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.
