Asheville's Curiosity Market for AnimalsLocal Hendersonville areaartists come together for Asheville’s Curiosity Market for Animals on July 7, 2012.  The Curiosity Market is meant to bring awareness and adoptive parents to Animal Haven, an Asheville no-kill sanctuary.  While Animal Haven mainly takes in abandoned and abused farm animals, they also have several dogs and cats that need good homes.

Curiosity Market takes place from 10am to 4pm at Pritchard Park in downtown Asheville.  Local area artists perform for free to the public.  Several Asheville area businesses donate some great prizes to be raffled off to all attendants at the Curiosity Market.  All money raised goes directly to Animal Haven.  While they primarily shelter animals, Animal Haven also provides a Meals on Wheels program so pets of low-income families can be properly fed.  Their New Leash on Life program provides valuable rehabilitation work with the inmates of Black Mountain Women’s Correctional Center.  Another program offered by Animal Haven involves teaching children responsible ownership and care of pets.

Other dates for Curiosity Market include:

  • August 4, 2012
  • August 18, 2012
  • September 1, 2012

Asheville’s Curiosity Market for Animals helps bring attention and money to local Asheville no-kill sanctuary Animal Haven.  While you’re at the Curiosity Market, consider adopting a new furry family member for yourself.  They help kids learn responsibility and give your years of their unconditional love.
