Living in Asheville With Pets: Money, Safety, and Entertainment  

Visit any breweryor many restaurants, and you’ll quickly learn that Asheville is a pet friendly place. It’s not just our dog friends, but also cats who have a beloved spot in the hearts of Ashevillians. But living in Asheville with pets is not always as easy as it seems. There are pet safety concerns, affordable vet care, and even finding a place to live that allows your furry friends. Here are some things to consider.  

Renting With Pets 

You probably already know this, but renting with a pet in the greater Asheville area can be easier said than done. Several apartment complexes or private rental units do not allow pets at all. And for those that do, they may charge an additional pet fee or even a monthly pet rent.  

You can solve this problem by buying a home of your own where your beloved pets don’t have to find a part time job to pay their own way. Talking with a mortgage professional can help you get a handle on your finances and budget to make this happen.  

Pet Safety 

You also want to ensure your pet is safe and taken care of in your home. In case of emergency, have a kit put together for that you can grab and go. Know where their leash or carrier is to get them out of the house quickly. A pet alert sticker on your window can also help first responders take action knowing a pet is in the home.  

You should also be aware of dangers inside your home. You already know that chocolate is toxic for dogs, but did you know that onions and grapes are also bad for them? Many of the most popular essential oils are toxic to cats, and a diffuser can cause much more harm than good.  

The Asheville Humane Society offers these safety tips 

Low Cost Vet Options 

Your beloved pet deserves the best possible medical care, but it can be expensive. There are a lot of great vets around the area who make it easier living in Asheville with pets, including cat only clinics and emergency vet offices 

For a low-cost option, check out Open Door Vet Clinic which recently opened in West Asheville near Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack. It’s specially designed to provide vet care for pets at a lower cost for guardians.  

Pet Organizations 

There is an abundance of pet-centric organizations around Asheville.  

For cat lovers, check out Asheville Cat Weirdos. It’s an active Facebook group that spawned a fund to raise money for cats, and cat owners, in crisis.  

Brother Wolf and the Asheville Humane Society are doing work to ensure that animals in the area have loving and safe homes.  

Pet Friendly Spots 

Of course, Asheville is also known for pet friendly venues. Most restaurants and breweries that have outdoor spaces will allow you to bring your dogs.  

There are really more than we can list here, but some notable spots include: 

Saying Goodbye to a Beloved Pet 

The only thing most pet owners would say is that they want more time with their beloved pets. But if you have lost a cat or dog, the Asheville area has a pet cemetery and crematory that will treat you and your pet with the utmost respect.
