Founded in 2007, Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is the fruit of a volunteer group’s initiative to fight against animal euthanizing in their county. Dedicated to building the foundation for a no-kill community, Brother Wolf Animal Rescue's adoption and pet rescue programs are fueled by volunteers looking to change the fate of abandoned animals in Asheville, North Carolina.
Thousands of animals receive the proper attention, love, and care they need in Brother Wolf's facilities. As they say, by adopting you’re saving two lives: the life of the animal you’re adopting, and the life of the next one that will be welcomes to the shelter.
Needless to say, having a pet can be one of the most rewarding, fulfilling, and life-changing things you could ever experience, so go for it! Become a sibling wolf now!

You can learn a lot about an animal welfare organization just by looking at their name.
