In February, four hound puppies found themselves at the county shelter in Hendersonville after being abandoned by their mother. Our Henderson County chapter of Brother Wolf routinely rescues animals from the county shelter to help prevent euthanasia whenever possible. So when the county shelter called us for help, we jumped into action to place them into foster homes. With the support of our foster network, we quickly saved the lives of Kimono, Astrid, Jeezebelle, and Monarch.
We were able to split the sisters between Eileen and Candy, two of our experienced foster parents, to give them the best start to life. Eileen, who fosters many of our puppies, said they were “the smartest puppies I have ever fostered!” Not to mention very cute!
Our Henderson County chapter is foster-based, without a current brick-and-mortar location. While we work to help make Henderson County a No-Kill community, fosters like Eileen and Candy make it possible for us to rescue the animals who need us most.
In their loving foster homes, the girls grew healthy, strong, and ready to find their forever families. Eileen’s friend adopted her foster, Monarch. She loves going on walks and cannot pass a person without making friends with them! She’s a very social puppy and is comfortable in nearly any situation.
Kimono was adopted by a family in Hickory, NC who sends us regular updates. She’s doing great in her new home and is taking lots of naps.
Astrid found her forever home with with another Brother Wolf dog named Benson. Her family immediately fell in love when they saw a post about her on our Facebook page. After a safe and slow introduction with Benson, they were ready to seal the deal.
The final sister, Jeezebelle, found her perfect forever home after traveling to New York as part of Brother Wolf’s transport program. Last year, we transported 1,042 animals to partnered shelters who have lower intake rates. By transporting easy-to-adopt animals like Jeezebelle to other communities, we’re able to rescue more who are at risk of being euthanized.

If you’re not able to foster, please consider making donation to help further our work to make Henderson into a No-Kill county. Supplies may be dropped off at the Petco at 118 Highlands Square Drive in Hendersonville, where we have a donation bin located inside the store.

The Henderson County chapter of Brother Wolf Animal Rescue helps build the resources and programs necessary to create a No-Kill Henderson County. We collaborate with the county shelter and our community to identify animals most at risk and work to save their lives through our adoption, foster, volunteer, outreach, and pet retention programs.
