We’re catching our breath after back-to-back Rapid Response deployments to Texas and Florida. Because of your generous support, we were able to save hundreds of lives through search and rescue efforts and our growing transport program!
This week, I’d like to highlight some particularly exciting things we have going on. First, we launched our Humane Education Program in three area schools this month! Read the story below to learn how we’re helping to teach empathy and compassion to children. This program has already generated so much excitement amongst students, teachers, and Brother Wolf staff — we’re excited to see it grow!
Next, please check out the story about Dallam Hart, one of our talented partners at Deltec Homes. Dallam and his team are working tirelessly to help us create a Sanctuary that the animals deserve.
Finally, we are continuing to rescue and care for animals every day at our adoption center and through our network of foster homes (who remain dedicated to animals like Vernon), offsite adoption centers, and chapters — some of which recently celebrated one-year anniversaries!
If you haven’t already, please take a look at our new Sanctuary website and share it with your animal loving friends. Your excitement and support are needed now more than ever to bring this project to life! With your help, we can rescue more animals than ever before.
For the animals,
Denise Bitz, Founder and President
Brother Wolf Animal Rescue
Dallam Hart is the Director of Sales at Deltec Homes, the family-owned company we’ve been working with to design the buildings that will be popping up soon at our Animal Sanctuary in Leicester, NC. “The vision for the Sanctuary is amazing,” Dallam says, “and we wanted to be a part of that. It will have such a positive impact on our community.”
Beloved Fospice Dog Becomes Special Wedding Guest
“I have always been a huge hound lover,” fostermom Sherri says, “and there was just something about his eyes.” A year earlier, Sherri’s dog Riley had passed away. “Riley had been with us for 14 years when we lost him. In those pictures, Vernon had his eyes. I didn’t know how to explain that. They told me he was 11 years old, but I didn’t care. I knew I could give him the best life for whatever time he had left.”
And then something amazing happened.
Unexpected Grant Funds Humane Education Program
“Many schools are moving towards expeditionary learning and solutionary learning — getting out of the classroom, being hands-on with the world and technology,” Education Outreach Manager, Laura, says. “It’s a way to give kids a whole lot of information in a way that is fun, so they don’t even realize they’re learning. With a grant from George Abdo’s trust, we can fund field trips so schools and parents won’t have to worry about anything.”
Brother Wolf Chapters Save Hundreds of Lives in First YearOur Dickenson Co., VA and Rutherford Co., NC chapters recently celebrated one-year anniversaries! Establishing No-Kill chapters in high-kill counties isn’t easy, but Dickenson Manager Kelly says, “The town has been very supportive of our rescue work – the community has been amazing. We have a lot of volunteers.” Their work has been so effective, in fact, that no cats were euthanized in Dickenson County all year!
