About Our Shelter:The Yancey Humane Society & Animal Shelter is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, just 30 miles north of Asheville. We take all animals brought to us: strays, feral dogs, cats, and personal pets on a case by case basis. We provide a loving temporary home until they can be placed in a permanent home. We are not a "no kill" shelter, however, we do not have a time limit. We treat all animals as individuals and temperament test them for adoptability. This way, no one slips through the system, and we know each and every personality in the house. So, if you are looking for a pet, we can help match you with the perfect friend who will fit your lifestyle.
Come Meet our Pets:Yancey County Animal shelter 962 Cane River School road, Burnsville NC 28714. Hours are 12 till 5 on Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri. Sat hours are 12 till 4. Closed Wed and Sundays. We are about 45 min.NE of Asheville, NC.
