Critter Magazine

Critter is an animal adoption publication dedicated to improving the quality of life for animals through education, by supporting spay/neuter efforts, encouraging responsible pet guardianship, and helping to find loving homes for animals in need. Although the majority of the animals profiled are dogs and cats, we will profile any animal that is in need of adoption. If you are looking for an animal to adopt, please explore the pages and see if any of the featured animals might be of interest.


Animal Haven of Asheville

We are a dedicated group of people 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. Although our emphasis is on farm animals, we also have cats and dogs that desperately need a home. 

We work closely with other animal welfare organizations including kennel clubs, breed rescue groups, and directly with the public. Our goal is to alleviate overcrowding in our local animal shelters by providing an alternative to traditional sheltering.
