I've been volunteering at the Refuge for over seven years. The care and love that the animals at the US Wolf Refuge get is surpassed by none. Large enclosures have been built that gives the animals room to roam and still be safe. Bill, the curator of the Refuge, loves and cares for the wolfdogs and sacrifices much to care for them. It's a great volunteer opportunity, and many of these animals have been saved from shelters that would have put them down, which is the most important thing.

I have been involved with the U.S. Wolf Refuge for 30 years. In that time I have seen first hand what they do and how they do it. Their compassion and dedication to their mission exceeds any other non-profit. They manage to accomplish more than could ever be imagined considering their small budget. I encourage everyone to donate all that they can.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I met Bill at an art exhibit featuring photos taken by Christine Mikulice. Thanks to that happy circumstance my kids and I have been privileged to get to know Bill and share his love for the beautiful animals under his care. We have also been able to introduce others who likewise enjoy the opportunity to help with the ongoing work at the Refuge. It is a truly amazing experience.

My husband & I met Bill only 2 years ago. Since then we have become the best of friends. I have never met someone more dedicated to saving wolves & wolf-dogs and educating the public about them. We have been to the refuge on numerous occasions to volunteer our time. We've helped to make new and larger enclosures and recently had the extreme satisfaction of being there when animals were moved into the new enclosures and a new pack member introduced. The work that Bill does, tirelessly is beyond what any 1 person could be expected to do on a daily basis. The animals love him beyond what words could ever describe. The friends we've made thru the US Wolf Refuge are lifetime friends and meeting up with them at the refuge to make it a better place is one of the most rewarding things we could do. Bill has taught us so much about these beautiful creatures and to be able to share his work with them is a blessing for us!

I have known Bill for 15 years and his work with wolves. During my numerous visits to his residence, I have seen first hand his devotion to protecting and serving wolves. While most who work at non-profits clock out at the end of the day, Bill's work is completely integrated into his life. He literally lives with the wolves and knows them like a brother knows his sister. This level of service will give the wolves the best chance of a bright future.

I am a lifetime volunteer and have been bringing middle, high and now college-aged students to the refuge for work weeks annually for many years. We keep coming back to the US Wolf Refuge because we trust everything we give and donate is used for the animals in their care. Every year healthy, happy and well-loved animals greet us, providing memories and life purpose to many future volunteers, vets, doctors, teachers, and well-rounded humans. Passion like BIlls' inspires kids like few people ever can!

I have known Bill Chamberlain and been a volunteer at the United States Wolf Refuge for almost 10 years now. I met Bill while trying to save the life of a high content wolf-dog that was surrendered to an animal shelter where I volunteered. Bill was able to accept Voyager at the refuge and once I saw the facility and understoof Bill's passion to help these animals, I was hooked for life. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to work with these animals and help at the refuge with whatever I can do. Because of alot of perseverance and hard work by our dedicated volunteers the refuge is finally everything that we imagined it could be. Bill always places the animals first above any of his own needs. He is the most self-less person I have ever had the honor of knowing.

Bill is a "one-man" ambassador for the wolves. He has dedicated his life to this purpose. I have known him for at least 20 years when he had his small sanctuary in Chino Valley Arizona. He has never wavered in his belief that these magnificent creatures deserve a safe and loving home. He and his volunteers continue to do a remarkable job in spite of sometimes negative reactions and lack of funding. Bill deserves this award.

I have known Bill for 45 years as a caring, dedicated and selfless individual. I remember when he started his mission in Arizona and I can say that I’ve never seen anyone give as much of his life to a cause than Bill. He cares for his wolves as he would family, for that is as he sees them, his family. The wolves are well taken care of and every dollar received by the refuge goes for their well being. I cannot think of a much more worthy recipient of an honor of this greatness than Bill Chamberlain and his United States Wolf Refuge.

Bill Chamberlain is a vocal ambassador for wolves. His clear views on wolfdogs is a message all wolf and dog lovers need to hear.
