CFD: Wolf Haven International, Helping Those Who Can’t Help Themselves

Houston (before)

 

Houston (after)

For over three decades, Wolf Haven has worked to conserve and protect wolves and their habitat. Thanks to your generosity, in 2017 we were able to make great strides in each of our three program areas: sanctuary, education and conservation.

Those most impacted by our sanctuary work do not have the ability to tell their own powerful stories: Sierra, a pure wolf who spent months wandering around Hollywood Hills after escaping from a backyard breeder; Houston, who lived in a filthy cage at a feed store and survived on beef jerky; Angel, (sister of long-time Wolf Haven resident Shadow), who was about to be shot in the head by her owner along with six-month old pup Zoe (both were tragically emaciated). These rescues have joined the rest of the sanctuary residents in a safe, lifetime home where they are treated with compassion, respect and dignity.

As Wolf Haven celebrates its 35th anniversary as a nonprofit wolf sanctuary and education center, we will continue our education and advocacy outreach to end the exploitation of beautiful and innocent animals like Sierra, Houston, Angel and Zoe. Our message is clear and unwavering: wolves and wolfdogs do not make good pets. Wolves are wild animals that belong in the wild. Breeding wolves with dogs does not preserve wild wolf populations and instead negatively impacts public attitudes toward wolves. It does nothing to help the conservation of wolves.

On behalf of the wolves and wolfdogs whose lives are positively impacted by your support, we thank you and wish you a peaceful 2018.
