As a volunteer at White Wolf Sanctuary for 4 1/2 years, I know how much this non profit would benefit from extra recognition and funds! The Sanctuary is home to ten Arctic wolves, all born in captivity and rescued from less than wonderful living situations. They cannot be released into the wild and this is their home for life. The director, LoisTulleners, makes sure that each of the wolves is well cared for. and they are her #1 priority. The wolves are in 5 groups, one male and female to each group. As breeding isn't the business of the Sanctuary, they are separated during February which is the normal breeding month. The enclosures where the wolves live are quite large (some many acres), each has a house for escaping the most extreme weather, ponds for the summer heat, and the wolves can be moved from enclosure to enclosure for 'enrichment' so they don't become bored with the same scenery day after day. I volunteer one day a week at the Sanctuary and have interaction with all the wolves, some more than others. The work is hard and often less than glamorous but necessary for the care of the animals. The wolves 'give back' in their response to visits at the fence with them and they are wonderful. As a non profit, the only money comes from donations, the adopt a wolf program, and tours, which drop considerably during the winter months. My life has been greatly impacted by my time at White Wolf Sanctuary. Carol Gladwin
