Are you looking for a cat who will be your absolute best friend? Are you looking for a cat who will worship you like a God? Well than the chances are good that you're looking at him and his name is Thunder (A.K.A.: "Mr Happy Toes"). Thunder was living a life on the run as an unaltered male when he was lucky enough to be caught in a live-trap by a BWAR volunteer. After being tested, vaccinated, neutered, poked, prodded, and generally terrified, Thunder was given to me to foster amidst discussion about his possible release into a feral cat colony. Within 24 hours of his arrival, however, Thunder promoted me to a goddess. He began worshipping the very ground I walked upon. He began acting as though I was the only friend he's ever had on Earth. And then within about 48 hours, Thunder had already pretty much bonded with my shoulders whenever I walked, with my lap whenever I sat, and with my feet whenever a shoulder or lap weren't available.  Unfortunately, Thunder had a stubborn ear infection in one ear, which has since left him with an adorable little head tilt and unable to blink one eye. Yes indeed, Thunder was one lucky boy.


So what, you ask, does it take to be promoted to a God-like status? Well, you just have to follow a few simple rules Thunder has laid down as a consequence of his time spent on the run:


Rule #1: You cannot have any other cats, as Thunder doesn't play well with others. (Although I think he would be fine with well-behaved dogs.) 


Rule # 2: You have a relatively quiet household and no small children, as Thunder's equilibrium is a little off as a result of damage to his inner ear.


Rule #3: You are willing to hold and play with him for hours on end.

All Brother Wolf animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before adoption (if species appropriate).

Individuals interested in adopting a puppy are STRONGLY encouraged to download and read this FREE ebook. Even if you've raised puppies in the past, this is an invaluable resource to help make your new addition successful!

Please note that visual breed identification of companion animals has been proven to be unreliable, so for most of our animals we provide a best guess at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our animals as an individual and do our best to describe and place pets based on personality not breed label.

About Brother Wolf Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is known for their excellence in matching people with the best dog or cat that would suit their lifestyle. Today we are proud to have the largest NO-KILL shelter in Asheville. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue was established in 2006. We started off as a very small group of people, taking dogs and cats from gassing shelters in GA. We found wonderful homes for these animals but realized while we were saving these particular animals, we had a much bigger problem in our community that we needed to face. Perfectly healthy, highly adoptable animals in our community are being euthanized every day. Rescued pets are not broken or damaged goods. They are wonderful animals who have ended up homeless through no fault of their own.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our facility is located at 31 Glendale Avenue in Asheville, off Swannanoa River Rd, 1/2 mile from Lowe's. Open every day.

Our Adoption Process...

All adoptions will require a contract and discussions with one of our adoption counselors. Based on the needs of the particular animal, we reserve the right to require a home visit at the discretion of the adoption counselor. All our animals will be altered before adoption and up-to-date on standard vaccinations. We do collect an adoption fee.
