For more than a dozen years, Animal Haven of Asheville has been dedicated to caring for homeless, abused and unwanted pets. A “no-kill” shelter, they work to find permanent homes for their charges.
They operate a thrift store at 65 Lower Grassy Branch Road in East Asheville. Items are always welcome for donation.
