Brother Wolf Animal Rescue betters the lives of companion animals and the people who love them. Through adoption and pet retention programs, a low-cost mobile spay and neuter clinic, lifesaving shelter transfer partnerships, and an extensive volunteer and foster networks, Brother Wolf impacts the lives of thousands of animals each year in western North Carolina. By working across county lines in one of the most impoverished areas of the country, Brother Wolf serves as a critical safety net for animals in the shelter system as well as animals whose families can no longer care for them. Brother Wolf envisions a community where all companion animals are valued, cared for and thriving, and where lives are enriched by the special bond between people and animals.
Brother Wolf cares for senior dogs by collaborating with overburdened, municipal shelters that lack the resources to provide care to senior dogs. Through Brother Wolf’s relationships with over 20 municipal shelters, they’re able to identify senior dogs who need dental and medical care and who, without the help of Brother Wolf, would not have access to this specialized care. Thanks in part to funding from Grey Muzzle, Brother Wolf plans to take in 120 senior dogs over the next 12 months, provide them with dental and medical care, and place them in loving, adoptive homes. This lifesaving work helps dogs like Clyde who came to Brother Wolf with severe ear infections, flea and food allergies that caused painful skin sores, and untreated arthritis. With months of medical treatment and daily care from his loving foster mom, Clyde’s mobility, hearing, and skin conditions dramatically improved. He now enjoys playing with other dogs and carrying around his favorite toys. Best if all, he will soon be adopted into a loving home.
