Furries of Blue Ridge Furfare, we are pleased to present our charity: Asheville Cat Weirdos!
Asheville Cat Weirdos originated as a Facebook group in March of 2016 for sharing cute cat photos and evolved into a 501(3)(c) non profit dedicated to the welfare of cats. ACW operates an Emergency Fund for cat owners that find themselves without the funds to treat their kitty companions. Last year alone this organization helped 132 cats and raised a total of $38,814.52!
We are thrilled to support a cause that is truly worth purring over.

During our Anthrodown, a one on one timed artist competition where donations towards an art piece determined a winner of each round, our wonderful supporters helped us raise a total of $515.95 for The ADE Project.
The Artists Designing Evolution project is a community-based, learning organization comprised of artists, organizers, students, educators, entrepreneurs, and community leaders that cooperate to create a world beyond oppression, and inequity by building capacity, opportunity, and community with Black, indigenous, people of color, while preserving culture with creative, sustainable solutions – one project at a time.
