Why does W.O.L.F. exist?
Every year, thousands of wolf dogs are surrendered by frustrated owners to shelters, and they are euthanized because they have nowhere else to go. W.O.L.F. was created to help alleviate the suffering of these animals and to educate the public about the difficulties that nearly always occur when adopting a captive bred wolf or wolf dog. W.O.L.F.’s mission is to rescue captive-born wolves and wolf dogs, to provide lifetime sanctuary, and to provide public education on the plight of captive-born wolves and wolf dogs and wolves in the wild to help promote a greater understanding of them and their value. W.O.L.F. does not breed animals. All of the animals are spayed and neutered unless there is a medical reason which prevents it. In such cases an animal is only placed with another animal who is spayed/neutered.
Unless a person is very knowledgeable about the care required for these animals, has a large property with an adequate and secure enclosure, and has sufficient financial resources, it is almost impossible to keep these animals safe and healthy. They are not dogs and they do not react like a typical pet.
