Let’s Make International Animal Rescue Rock!!
Hiya! Savannah Here!
I just read yesterday about the Extreme Pet Blogger Blog Hop, which celebrates posts about International Animal Shelter/Rescue Awareness, from August 17-24. Oh My Cat!!! How could I not have known??? So embarrassing! So I jumped over to pick up the badge from Two Little Cavaliers…
Then, I started to ponder (vocab builder project) what I could write about that is about animal rescue and international…hmmmmm…tapping one claw up, down, up, down…tail twitching….thump, thump…swish, swish…
I GOT IT!!!…runs to tell Mom…Mom, Mom!!!…I wanna write about Wolf Haven International!!! OK???
Why of course Savvy, that is a great idea!! We have supported them for over 20 years!! And you don’t know yet, but Savvy…yes Mom?…Your Dad gives me one birthday gift every year…he “Adopts a Wolf” for me each year, and gets me the Wolf Haven Calendar. I get a different wolf each year.
Wowie Mom…that’s so cool!!
Alrighty, here are just a couple of really cool things to know about Wolf Haven International.
First their mission:
“Our mission is to conserve and protect wolves and their habitat. We rescue and provide sanctuary for displaced, captive-born wolves, promote wolf restoration in historic ranges and educate the public about the value of wildlife. “
They mostly give sanctuary to Gray Wolves, Mexican Gray Wolves, Red Wolves and on a case by case basis, They seem to be giving sanctuary to 3 wolf hybrids. They also have 3 coyotes.
On their website they state:
“Wolf Haven still stands firm in its opposition to breeding, selling, owning, trafficking and promoting wolfdogs (and wolves) as pets—and we believe that most wolfdogs are bred and purchased by people who are unaware of the animals’ highly unique physical and social needs, behavioral traits, and possible characteristics.”
I encourage my followers to take a hop over to visit the Wolf Haven International site…they are a great organization. I know they have also been involved in the reintroduction of the Mexican Gray Wolf and the Eastern Red Wolf back into their habitat.
Mom’s wolf for this year is Shadow…isn’t he gorgeous???…
I could not use any photos from the website as they are, rightly so, copyright photos.
I hope you enjoyed learning about Wolf Haven International…Mom and Dad not only adopt a wolf every year on Mom’s birthday, they also often give their Christmas donation to Wolf Haven. And, Mom and Dad have visited Wolf Haven twice! They are located outside Olympia, WA in Tenino…beautiful country. And there are many wolves who are “on tour”…and no…you CANNOT GET CLOSE AND YOU CANNOT PET THEM!! They are wolves!
Oh yeah, and Mom and Dad used to have 3 Siberian Huskies, you can see them on my page “Anifamily OTRB“…and each of their Sibes has a memorial stone in a courtyard at Wolf Haven.
