(August 2020) Request for City of Asheville and Buncombe County, NC contracts / relationships 01/01/15 – 08/19/20

Please provide/disclose any contracts or business relationships between Asheville Cat Weirdos and the city of Asheville/the Asheville Humane Society and/or Buncombe County.

[Editor's Note: The sender indicated in the "Start Date / End Date" section of the request form that the requested time period should be 01/01/2015 - 08/19/2020."]

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 08/24/20: The request above will be modified for clarity. As originally written, this is not an actionable request for public records to be sent to all [3] agencies listed. Specifically – the Asheville Humane Society is not a government entity.

Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️Requests that are only informational questions, and requests that are not addressed to government entities.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to make a request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs.


The request (s) we will send to City of Asheville, and Buncombe County Governments will read as follows:

[REQUEST 1]

“Hello City of Asheville, NC Government,

I’d like to make a public records request for the following information:

Please provide/disclose any contracts or business relationships [unspecified] between “Asheville Cat Weirdos” and the City of Asheville, during the time period January 1, 2015 – August 19, 2020.

Thank you for your assistance!”

[REQUEST 2]

“Hello Buncombe County, NC Government,

I’d like to make a public records request for the following information:

Please provide/disclose any contracts or business relationships [unspecified] between “Asheville Cat Weirdos” and Buncombe County Government, during the time period January 1, 2015 – August 19, 2020.

Thank you for your assistance!”


Site Users Please Note: Currently, we have 9 types of request statuses, indicated by various colorful “face icons” on the View all Requests page, as well as in the overall “Fulfilled Status” listed at the top of each request.

The overall “Fulfilled Status” of a request may not always match the individual statuses of a request’s various activities / updates listed below the request. For example:

If the same request was made to both Buncombe County and Asheville City Governments within one request, this is treated as two requests, and it’s possible that one entity’s request statuses could get marked as “Completed,” while the Overall Status of the request is still marked as “Government Processing Request.”

This just means that Sunshine Request is waiting on the rest of the results before we can mark the request as fully “Completed” overall.

If at any time you would like to track the status of your request, please search for it via the “Search box” or list of requests on this page. Any updates we receive will be posted on our site as soon as we are able.
