Brother Wolf Animal Rescue provides the resources and lifesaving programs to build No-Kill communities. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue was founded in 2007 by a small group of volunteers and fosters led by Denise Bitz and Joelle Warren. At that time, the local county shelter was euthanizing most of the animals who walked through its doors. Brother Wolf was founded with the goal of creating a No-Kill community. Through adoption and pet retention programs, extensive volunteer and foster networks, a trap-neuter-vaccinate-return program for community cats, a northern shelter animal transport program, and a low-cost mobile spay/neuter clinic, Brother Wolf now positively impacts the lives of thousands of animals each year.
