Asheville Humane Society


I've been going there for a while to finish up my "hands on" program for my animal behavioral college. This shelter is by far the best I've ever been to. They train the dogs before they even go to a new home. They know sit, down, off, stay, and come. And they have this fantastic program called Open Paw. You can check it out at www.openpaw.org
