Make a Difference
We need your paws to bring awareness to our cause! Help the animals in need at Asheville Humane Society by joining the 2nd Annual Paw It Forward Campaign presented by Dog Tag Art! This online crowdfunding campaign, running from May 30 to June 24, aims to support the most medically at-risk animals in our community. These animals need YOU to be their voice. Sign up as an individual, as part of a team with friends/co-workers, or have your pet be the face of your campaign!
Once you click the “Start Fundraising” button, follow the simple steps to set up your page. Add a profile picture and write about your "ins-paw-ration” for joining our cause. In minutes, you can start sharing your page with friends and family on social media, email and text!
Without the generous support of our donors, Asheville Humane Society would not be able to afford the vast amount of x-rays, surgeries, dentals and other vital procedures and treatments that many of our animals need to live and thrive.
This year, the Paw It Forward goal is $45,000, and all of the funds raised will be used to treat animals who need extensive medical care to reach the quality of life they deserve...a life worth living.
Your participation in Paw It Forward will help provide life-saving medical care to the sick and injured animals who are waiting for their second chance. And to celebrate your campaign successes, Asheville Humane Society will be hosting a Paw It Forward Block Party on Saturday, June 24 from 5-8 PM with live music, food trucks, games and more!
YOU can make a difference. Spread the word about our mission and track every dollar you raise! Your donations, both big and small, will have a dramatic impact on local animals in need!
