Henderson, NC: Homeless Man Needs Help with 2 Dogs

THE CONTACT IS 252-433-5603 WILL or Benji Brackman at 540 825 7304
Recently homeless man in Henderson needs help with dog food for his 16 year old deaf dalmation and 6 year old dobie mix. He has about 3 days worth of food left.

This gentleman lost his job, his home, and his now living in his truck. He's enlisting in the Navy Reserves but needs placement for his dogs. He's an ex-animal control officer and paramedic as well. The dogs are currently staying in an old neighbor's empty chicken house. I met this man myself on Saturday. He's articulate, intelligent, and very nice. His cell phone is paid through the next 2-3 weeks, so he can be reach via cell. 252-433-5603.

Extremely Urgent Situation. 21 Rescue groups were contacted over the weekend. Only two replied back with a no. It's a shame that a man who's dedicated his life to animals isn't even worthy of a response email from 19 other groups. The dal is spayed, the dobie is not neutered. We have a sponsor for the dobie's neuter on the 28th of this month. A tentative temporary home for the dobie in Durham, but we also need an outdoor kennel donated and delivered to the Durham area - used is great.

This is going to take a network of people to make it happen, please email if you can help! It's getting colder and colder each night. Once these dogs are placed in homes, the gentleman will then move into a men's shelter. Until then, he won't leave the dogs.

    Brother Wolf Animal Rescue 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.

    BWAR 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. Please stop by and visit with some of the wonderful cats and dogs, kittens and puppies awaiting adoption. We're open Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. - 8 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., Sunday 8 a.m. - 6 p.m
