Quite a few of the volunteers are really friendly and helpful, but the last experience I had with management went very poorly. When asked about the death of our last dog, we were honest and told him he had bolted out the door between my parents' legs and we hadn't seen him until the pound called with the unfortunate news. We received a tongue lashing at the front desk and was essentially denied adoption privileges, judging from the doodling the volunteer scolding us did on our adoption application. Upon the finishing of the volunteer's rant about how we were "irresponsible pet owners" for allowing him to "escape like that," and how the dog we were hoping do adopt would need a much larger yard than the one we had to offer (which was pretty large already), two of their dogs bolted from a cage as a different volunteer was trying to open it (much like our former dog did before we lost him), and headed for an unguarded front door and a wide open back garage door. If the happy attitude of quite a few of the volunteers had been a consistency amongst all employees, I would give this establishment a higher rating. My personal poor experience aside:Overall, the establishment seemed a bit overcrowded and some of the animals were misplaced (i.e. big dogs were in small crates, small dogs were in large kennels). Prices seem reasonable, though, and it's nice that all animals have vaccinations and de-worming. I'd recommend this establishment to a person with a large home and an extensive, fenced-in lawn. Not the kind of place middle-class citizens would want to check out first.
I’m looking at my terrier mix as I write this. Memories of adopting her 2 years ago now, are cherished ones. On her “Gotcha Day,” a staff member placed this puppy gently into my arms and we became family. It was such a wonderful event that I decided to adopt another dog 7 months later. I have experienced great joy at Brother Wolf Animal Rescue.
I can't say enough good things about this hardworking, dedicated group! Just tour the facility, and you will see what I mean. They are always acting on the behalf of the animals and are careful with placements. They really know all of these pets and their personalities. Fabulous organization. (Enough said.)
