Please contact Kristi ( for more information about this pet.

Dolly is a sweet and small young cat who was rescued from flooding in Louisiana. She’s only a little more than a year old and has had more than her share of trauma in her young life, but she’s full of life and love and energy, and is looking for her perfect forever home.

Dolly has Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, which sometimes results in her sounding like she has the sniffles, so she takes a supplement called Lysine mixed into her food daily to keep her healthy.  Otherwise, she’s the picture of health. She can be with other cats, but they have to be vaccinated for FVRCP, which is a commonly recommended vaccine anyway.  (All BWAR cats receive this vaccine.)

Dolly would love to have an easy-going cat her own age to play with. She hasn’t quite made a  connection with the other cats here, who are older and not interested in play, but she watches them with respect and occasionally manages to engage them with her silly antics.  She started off cautious of my small dogs, but has made strides in remaining calm when they’re acting crazy and sometimes plays chase with the smallest one. 

Dolly loves to watch TV, whether it’s a “cat video” featuring squirrels and birds, or even football and tennis!  She’s quite the cuddler and loves to be stroked and petted, rolling and flailing toward your hand to get the full petting experience.  Some of Dolly’s other favorite hobbies include sitting in an open window on a breezy day, napping in warm laundry, playing peek-a-boo behind the washing machine, climbing the cat tree to the very top, chasing toys, shimmying under furniture to retrieve toys she’s swatted under there, and zipping from chair to chair in a circle under the dining room table.  Dolly is completely litter box trained, and when she does something she shouldn’t, she’ll stop at a firm “no.” She’s a really well-behaved young cat who’s still got some kitten in her.

Dolly can sometimes get a bit over-stimulated and can react in fear if she’s grabbed without warning, so a home without small children is probably best for her.  Please contact me today for more information about this sweet girl!

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.
