Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is excited to announce the hire of a full-time shelter veterinarian, Dr. Megan McAndrew, who will work on-site as well as perform off-site surgical procedures.

McAndrew holds degrees in Zoology and Veterinary Medicine from North Carolina State University and has nearly a decade of experience in shelter medicine. 

“I’ve always loved animals,” McAndrew says. “Even before I knew what a veterinarian was, I knew that’s what I wanted to be. I’ve been amazed by how Brother Wolf’s team brings compassion to every aspect of animal care.”

After many years of working in shelter medicine, McAndrew says “I know how to use minimal resources for maximum impact.” Her expertise will greatly benefit Brother Wolf, which spends an average of $50,000 per month on medical care alone.

“Medical expenses are a large portion of our annual budget,” explains Brother Wolf’s Director of Animal Care, Audrey Lodato. “By bringing Dr. McAndrew on board, we’ll be able to perform many procedures in house, which will help us decrease veterinary costs and maximize the generous funds we receive from our donors.”

Having a shelter veterinarian on staff will allow Brother Wolf to further their mission to build No-Kill communities. Visit www.bwar.org to learn more about the life-saving resources and programs that helped Brother Wolf positively impact the lives of more than 6,000 animals in 2018.
