August 20, 2011 is International Homeless Animals Day, sponsored by the International Society of Animal Rights. The keyword is neuter - so many animals are in shelters across the country due to pet overpopulation. Spay and Neuter - spread the word and pass this on to all your fiends and family.
Our artist today is copper enamel jeweler Elvie Zell who is a master at her craft. She amazes us with her detail in pins, pendants and earrings. Her love of and knowledge of cats and dogs comes through in each piece. Who better to end the second week of featuring cats and dogs for adoption at Brother Wolf Animal Rescue in Asheville, NC? They are participating in the Save More Lives ASPCA 100K Challenge from August until October 2011.

|Candy available at Brother Wolf.|
Candy spent her early years living on a back porch, so she was very nervous and shy at first, but she has really come around. Her foster mom says that even though Candy is a small dog, she has the personality of a large dog. She is very active and loves being outside if another dog or human is around. She takes a while to warm up to a stranger, but she does warm up. She sticks to her foster mom like glue, but still likes to go, go, go. Candy does well on leash and riding in a car. Her foster mom took her tubing, which Candy loved. Candy also loves playing fetch. Candy needs an active owner who will take the time to help her adjust to new surroundings and people. Because Candy is in a foster home, call first if you are interested in meeting her. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue's Adoption Center is located at 31 Glendale Ave., Asheville, NC 28803 or call 828-505-3440 for more information. Our hours are Mon.-Sat. 8am-8pm and Sunday...

|Katie available at Brother Wolf.|
At 12 years old, Katie should be spending her days lazing on a pillow in the sunshine, cherished by a devoted family in her golden years. Instead, she found herself homeless and abandoned. Katie’s previous owner passed away without plans for her care in place. She spent a month in the deserted home, a neighbor dropping by once in awhile to put out food. Aside from movers coming in and emptying the home, she was alone in grieving for her lost friend. Finally she too was packed up, and left at the local animal shelter. At her advanced age, and surrounded by young, outgoing cats, her chances of adoption there were slim. So Brother Wolf welcomed her into our family, and she’ll stay with us for as long as it takes until her new perfect person comes along. We’re only able to be there for her thanks to you! Katie is looking for very special people to be her new family. She’s on a prescription diet to maintain healthy kidney levels, and had been declawed so her joints are stiff from being unable to stretch naturally. But despite everything, Katie has so much love to give. After the trauma of her past she just wants a safe place to rest and a home to call her own.
