100% Volunteer Run


Animal Haven of Asheville is a place where lost and abandoned animals can find food and shelter from the cruelties of life.

We are a ten-acre sanctuary in East Asheville, NC

and have been home to rescued farm animals, as well as dogs and cats, for the past 18 years. Our orgnization is made up of a dedicated group of volunteers with the goal of providing protection and refuge to homeless and abused animals. We provide shelter, veterinary care, and rehabilitation for life, or until someone like you comes and adopts one of our animals. Come visit our rescued animals, shop our thrift store, and attend upcoming events!


Meet all of our rescued farm animals and explore the sanctuary 


We need your help in our Thrift Store, on the Farm, and with special events


Groups are given the opportunity for hands on experience in animal care and feeding
