About Brother Wolf Animal Rescue
Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization which operates a limited intake No Kill shelter and foster program tending to the physical and emotional needs of homeless animals. The staff and volunteers are dedicated to finding excellent homes for pets in our care, often specializing in animals who need behavioral training or extensive medical care before being ready for adoption. BWAR promotes responsible pet ownership and offers many forms of community outreach in an effort to improve the quality of life for the animals and people in our community, to decrease pet homelessness, and to strengthen the animal/human bond. BWAR works to bring about a time when there are no more homeless pets in our community.
The History of Brother Wolf Animal Rescue
BWAR is working closely with Buncombe County and other animal rescue groups in a program called the Animal Coalition of Buncombe County.

What We Do
Here at Brother Wolf, we transfer dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens from local shelters and help owners who can longer longer care for their pets find them new families. By taking these animals into our foster homes and Adoption Center, we are able to provide them with a loving, nurturing environment where we can learn a lot about a particular pet. We get a good feel for what an ideal family would be for a particular pet, because we spend so much time with them. In addition to the emotional care we provide, all of our animals are treated for any pre-existing medical conditions such as heartworm disease or broken bones, and are spayed/neutered, tested for disease, microchipped, and vaccinated.
Our Transport Program
The pet overpopulation problem in the Southern states is overwhelming. On a daily basis, hundreds of wonderful, adoptable animals die simply because there is no where locally for them to go. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue has created a program where we partner with adoption centers and no-kill facilities in the Northeast, where they are quickly adopted by loving families.

A Report From a Recent Transport:
This is why Brother Wolf Animal Rescue has been so successful at saving lives in our community. It is because of the help of others that we are able to do what we do. About 3 weeks ago, we received a call from Angela Davis at Madison County Animal Shelter that she had a litter of lab mix puppies who came to her shelter with no mom and who needed some extra TLC in order to survive. Knowing that BWAR has a soft spot for special needs pups, she made that call and coordinated getting pups into the care of BWAR where wonderful foster families were standing by, ready to do the bottle feeding and extra "nursing" care that goes along with pups who lose their mom too soon.
After weeks of extra loving, good food and care, the pups were ready for the next phase of their journey which for us, meant reaching out to our partner shelters up North to see if they had the space. Unlike our shelters in the South, the Northern shelters rarely see litters of puppies and often welcome them into their care. Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge in New Jersey has been successful at helping a lot of our dogs/pups find homes quickly so they don't have to lanquish in our shelter here. So, with the help of Enterprise Van and some wonderful volunteers on both ends, 11 dogs and puppies made their way today to start a new life. Hopefully after they are adopted, will never have to see the inside of another animal shelter again. Thanks to all who made this happen today and to everyone who continues to help us on our mission to see a day when there are no more homeless pets in our community.
