About Brother Wolf Animal Rescue

Working Towards a No Kill Community.

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is a No Kill organization in Asheville, North Carolina.  We are a 501(c)(3) Tax Deductible Corporation (EIN: 20-8787719).  In addition to offering services to our community including free spay/neuter assistance and a pet food pantry, our Behavioral Counseling and Youth Education programs help promote a better understanding of, and respect for, companion animals. The 10,000 sq.ft. Joyce B. Cambron Adoption Center, located at 31 Glendale Avenue, is home to up to 100 dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens each day. In this clean, happy, and energetic environment, animals receive mental stimulation and exercise through a variety of enrichment programs. BWAR’s dedicated volunteers ensure that each pet receives lots of love and attention until finding his or her forever home. Our friendly Adoption Counselors and Animal Care Attendants work hard to find just the right match between a potential adopter and a furry new family member. Please stop by and visit with some of the wonderful animals awaiting adoption.  See more videos on Youtube.

Our Mission:

Our core ethic of uncompromised compassion is the foundation of our No Kill mission.  We lead by example- we do what we say we are going to do.  We value our relationships with each other and with those in our community and beyond, and recognize that they are critical in our work for the animals.
