A few months ago, this stray tuxedo cat kept coming by our house.  Then about 2 weeks ago, we noticed he was limping and had a wound on his front left paw.  We took him to a  veterinarian, who cleaned his wound, gave him an antibiotic shot, neutered him, tested him for feline leukemia (which was negative), gave him another shot and gave him a rabies vaccination.  He did not have a chip identifier.  My daughter named him Gus.  We brought him home to heal, and he had been inside for about a week.  Gus used the litter box with no problems while he was inside, although it is clear from his behavior he is definitely much happier being outside.  He is very friendly to people, will come right up to you and rub on your leg.  He likes to be petted, but he is not yet comfortable being picked up and held.  Gus seems to get along fine with other cats, but he will need some adjusting and training on how to get along with dogs.  We are told Gus is about 2 years old and in excellent health.  He is about 10 lbs, has a rather small frame, with a very shiny, thick black and white coat.  We are hoping someone will adopt this sweet, independent, easy-going and easy-to-care-for cat.

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.
