PUPPY COVERED IN CHEMICAL BURNS CARED FOR BY BROTHER WOLF ANIMAL RESCUE; POLICE SEEK ABUSER An abused puppy named Hope is now in the loving care of Brother Wolf Animal Rescue after being found in a trash bag outside of a McDonald’s in Tennessee, covered in what appear to be chemical burns. Brother Wolf learned about the puppy shortly after she arrived at Friends Animal Shelter in Newport, TN.

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is excited to announce that their mobile clinic has spayed and neutered more than 1,000 dogs and cats since the program launched in November 2018.

Audrey Lodato, Director of Animal Care, says “Our goal is to provide the crucial services that these organizations and their communities may not otherwise have access to. By preventing unwanted litters, we can prevent thousands of animals from ever entering the overcrowded shelter system in the first place. Shelters should serve as resource centers first and foremost to provide their communities with the tools they need. That’s exactly what the mobile clinic does.” In addition to serving animals in their home community of Buncombe County, Brother Wolf’s mobile clinic also travels to Transylvania, Rutherford, McDowell, and Haywood counties, with …
