In 1988 when it became apparent that we could no longer keep our beautiful and beloved wolf-hybrid, we searched for the perfect home. When we were told of Bill Chamberlain, then in Arizona, we contacted him and were impressed with his caring attitude. Bill accepted our Ginny and proceeded to find the perfect home for her. When his facilities in Arizona became too small for this worthwhile project he moved to his present property in Reno,Nevada. This property has proven to be a perfect fit for the animals he cares for, most for their entire lives. Wolf-hybrids and wolves, as they mature, are often not what people expect and way too often need to be placed in a safe and healthy environment which the owners are unable to provide. These magnificent animals fall between the lines of wild and pet categories, requiring special care for all aspects of life. And, in this endeavor, Bill is extremely dedicated. He seeks only the perfect fit for adoptees homes, and continues to educate the public in hopes that someday there will no longer be the mis-representation of these magnificent animals as 'pets'. The U.S. Wolf Refuge accepts 'pet' wolves and wolf-hybrids whenever the need arrives and provides for more and more of these magnificent animals in a way I have not seen in other places. This is why I will continue to support and donate annually to them and request that you would consider this wonderful organization for your 2010 Green Choice awards.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
When we could no longer keep our Beloved Ginny, a wolf-hybrid. We wanted a safe and loving home for her. Bill did this for us and for Ginny.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
IF ABLE....Send more money and arrange for more volunteers.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
is knowing that there are many wolf-hybrids and wolves acquired as puppies, only to become unsuitable as pets as they mature. Bill accepts these animals and they are now in a safe and caring environment for the rest of their lives.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Caring, loving and dedicated to the care of these beautiful animals.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Provide a caring lifetime environment for these animals... AND EDUCATE the population. If people only knew what happens to these beautiful animals...not just physically, but MENTALLY, there would no longer be the market to produce them.
Ways to make it better...
Our experience could not have been better, but there are many more who could be served by the U.S. Wolf Refuge.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
MONEY...the lack of enough funds to continue to provide for the growing needs of this worthwhile endeavor.
One thing I'd also say is that...
It's so easy to see the biggest needs in our world today, but this is definitely an endeavor in need of attention and support.
