Dear friend,

I want to sincerely thank you for the outpouring of support we’ve received since our big announcement last month about the financial challenges we’re facing and our plans to sell the sanctuary land in Leicester.

Your support has helped to reinforce something I’ve always felt in my heart: We are all Brother Wolf! Together we will strengthen our mission to build and sustain No-Kill communities throughout western North Carolina.

The work we’re doing is absolutely critical in our state, where 66,000 adoptable dogs and cats are being killed each year due to a lack of space and resources. These animals deserve better, and with your help we can continue to grow the resources and programs to save their lives.

Thousands of animals like Bailee are counting on us. When he arrived at Brother Wolf, he huddled in the back of his kennel, too scared to move. Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers showed Bailee that Brother Wolf is a place of love and healing. With lots of patience, he gained the confidence that allowed him to find his forever home. Because of Brother Wolf, he got the second chance he deserved.

With the large funding gap we’re facing this year, your support is still urgently needed today. I have the people and I have the programs, but your donation is critical to keeping our lifesaving efforts viable for the animals who need us the most.

This is a turning point for Brother Wolf and we can’t do this without you. Please think about the largest gift you’ve ever given to help the animals and consider giving that or more at this critical time.

I know Brother Wolf can and will get back to a place where we are stable and thriving, but your support today is urgently needed. Animals like Bailee need your support now more than ever.  Together, we will save lives.


With deep appreciation for your support,

Leah Craig Fieser
Executive Director
