Local Animal Welfare Groups
Brother Wolf was initially formed in the fall of 2006 by a small group of volunteers and later incorporated in the spring of 2007. Since then, we have saved the lives of over 1000 dogs! In early 2009, our cat friends joined us, and in June of 2009, we became a licensed shelter.
