Asheville, NC (July 24, 2015) – Coldwell Banker King is teaming up with Brother Wolf Animal Rescue to participate in the first-ever National Pet Adoption Weekend. This nationwide event is part of the “Homes for Dogs Project,” a national campaign hosted by Adopt-a-Pet.com and Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, which aims to find homes for 20,000 adoptable dogs in 2015.
To help reach this goal, local Coldwell Banker® offices across the United States, along with shelters and rescue groups in the Adopt-a-Pet.com network, are joining forces for one of the largest adoption events of the year. According to Terri King, President and CEO of Coldwell Banker King, "We're in the business of finding the right home for our clients. So, helping our furry friends find the right home is a natural fit for us and we enjoy doing it."
“We couldn’t be more excited to take part in this national movement to find homes for dogs,” said Denise Bitz, Founder and President of Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. I know this nationwide event will help draw attention to the thousands of orphaned animals in need of homes and truly make an impact on the Asheville community.”
“From the moment they greet us at the front door, they are our constant companions. We are proud to support Brother Wolf and to be a part of this outstanding campaign”, said Pat Snyder, Broker affiliated with Coldwell Banker King who also recently adopted a 3-year-old dog from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue.
