We are a progressive animal rescue organization in Asheville, North Carolina, building our organization from a foundation of our core values of adaptability, accountability, collaboration, and care.

At Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, we’re committed to creating a positive and supportive environment for the animals we serve and for the people we employ. We believe that our people are our greatest asset. As an organization that extends care and compassion to animals in our daily work, we believe in doing the same for the dedicated staff who make our work possible.

Brother Wolf strives to be an employment leader in animal welfare by addressing staff wellbeing, satisfaction, development, engagement, and retention. We know that it’s extremely impactful for the animals in our care to be served by staff who are thriving, resilient, and equipped with the support and tools necessary to remain in this important work long term. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is proud to be recognized as a leader in the area of staff engagement, development, and retention by UNC Charlotte’s Shelter Employee Engagement & Development Survey (SeeDS)!

Animal Welfare is a rewarding and challenging field that is made better by a diverse workforce, in both background and experience. Brother Wolf recruits, hires, trains, promotes, compensates, and administers all personnel actions without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sex stereotyping, pregnancy, gender, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, mental or physical disability, ancestry, medical condition, marital status, military or veteran status, citizenship status, sexual orientation, genetic information, or any other status protected by applicable law.

Words about working at Brother Wolf from staff members:

“Though I had never worked in animal welfare before coming to Brother Wolf, I feel like all of my skills were appreciated and utilized from the start. My supervisors took me under their wing and provided me with all the resources I could possibly need to thrive here.”

“I’ve never worked somewhere that has such a good community culture. You’re here because you want to be. I’ve learned a lot about what a good team is and what are the more important factors of running a team.”

“I wanted a job that felt like my forty hours were going towards something bigger. Now I’m adding to the community and also building myself up.”

“When speaking with my entire team, I feel seen for who I am as well as for what I can bring to the table. I never feel like I have to hide any parts of myself because everyone who works here has the same understanding: We are all human. We are all doing our best to show up everyday and save animals’ lives. It feels refreshing to know that everyone here wants to support both the animals and their co-workers every single day!”

“This place facilitates my character growth and allows me to improve qualities about myself that I bring to the world outside of work.”
