Adoption policy

Our Mission Our goal is to help our community respond humanely to the needs of animals. The Society provides a shelter for cats and dogs that are lost, abandoned or unwanted, sponsors rabies clinics, offers access to low-cost spay/neuter services, and partners with the local prison in the New Leash On Life obedience training program. \xa0Our website is networked with adoption programs across the country, and we have had folks come from as far away as Alabama, Michigan, California, and Canada to adopt from the Avery Shelter. Every year we adopt more animals than the year before. Avery Humane Society is a No Kill shelter which means we do not have an open door policy. Intakes for animals are done by appointment when space is available. The only shelter in Avery County, our facility is at capacity 100% of the time.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
