The recent announcement that Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is planning to close its Asheville adoption center as the organization transitions to  a new facility has raised questions and concerns about the area’s ability to absorb the extra animals.

Asheville has been dubbed Beer City,  Bee City and even Climate City.  In the future, Dog City may be added to that title.  A local dog behavior specialist is on a mission to make the area the most dog friendly place in the country. 

But this isn’t a campaign to encourage more water bowls and dog biscuits, it’s about retraining people.  WCQS’s Helen Chickering explains.

HC: That’s what I do                                                                                                       

Your gift to WCQS this morning will be matched for Asheville Humane Society. Our goal is $10,000 by 10 AM. $10,000 for WCQS means $10,000 in matching funds to benefit two spay and neuter programs at AHS.

Joining Barbara Sayer and Dick Kowal in the studio this morning is Sarah Hess, Asheville Humane Society's Interim Executive Director.

WCQS is only as vibrant and vital as the community we serve. That’s why we are partnering with Asheville Humane Society this morning, but we need your help!

Your contribution to WCQS right now will be matched dollar-for-dollar to benefit Asheville Humane Society's Safety Net Program.
