Lumby is amazing! He is super-friendly, patient and calm.  He has beautiful eyes which he uses to great advantage any time the can opener is in use.  He likes to explore, but seeks permission before getting into new spaces or jumping up to check out counters.  He accepts limits well and adjusted quickly when friends dropped by recently to visit and brought their small dog with them.  In fact, he seems to really love most dogs, and would probably love a canine companion. He likes to chat, especially around mealtimes, but is equally happy curling up on the footstool when it's time to relax.  He loves his scratching pad, fuzzy mouse and tinsel ball, and always seems to know where he leaves them!  Most of all he enjoys nose rubs, compliments and the occasional cat treat.  Lumby is a real sweetheart just waiting for the right person to come along and love him!  


Lumby is Feline Leukemia positive (FeLV+), which means there are a few additional requirements for his care: he must be an indoor only cat; he needs to be an only cat unless the other cat/s in the household are also FeLV+, and he needs routine veterinary care as he may be more susceptible to illness than a cat who is not carrying the virus would be. He would be a great cat to add to your household if you already have a dog, as the virus is not transmissible across species. 

All Brother Wolf animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before adoption (if species appropriate).
Application and counseling is required prior to all adoptions.

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.
