Review for INTERNATIONAL WOLF CENTER, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started out as a volunteer for the International Wolf Center in 2006. When a position opened I applied for it and got it. I've been a staff member now for almost 7 years. I love working for the Center and love my job. It is very gratifying to work for such a worthy cause and the people I work with are fantastic! I love the contact I have with all our members/donors and enjoy hearing their stories. I also see first hand the dedication and care our staff has for the wolves and the people who support them and us. And, of course, I love all the wolf education I get too! We truly are THE organization to go to for accurate and honest wolf information. Information is power, and with that power, a lot of good can be done.

Review for ANIMAL HUMANE SOCIETY, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Animal Humane Society does such wonderful work! They are a caring and dedicated group of staff and volunteers. I have a cat my mom adopted from the Society years ago - - he's now 22 years old! He is such a joy. I've participated in the Walk for Animals the last 10 years, and am looking forward to next year's Walk. If you spend any time at the Society, you can see first hand the wonderful care given to these animals. And not only do they provide support for our community, they help other communities across the country due to natural disasters and other hardships. A wonderful organization!

Review for INTERNATIONAL WOLF CENTER, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After I retired from the Air Force and moved back home to Minnesota, I began volunteering for the International Wolf Center in April 2006. I absolutely loved it! Such a wonderful staff and volunteers, and I felt appreciated and knew I was helping a good cause. In Feb 2007 an opening came up in the Membership department and I applied and got accepted. I've been here ever since and can't imagine being anywhere else. I see the passion in the people I work with every day, and it is so inspiring. Education of the public is so vital to the well being of the wolves. We must not only love and care about them, but must know them and understand them the best we can, and pass on that knowledge. The International Wolf Center reaches people all around the world, and we often hear from our supporters about the impact we've made in their lives and for the wolves. Thank you to all of you.

Review for INTERNATIONAL WOLF CENTER, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a member of the Air Force for 21 years. In 1996 while home on leave I went to the Minnesota State Fair. I visited the International Wolf Center's (the Center's) booth outside the DNR building and picked up some educational materials. When I got back to my duty station I filled out a membership brochure and mailed it in. I've been a member ever since. I moved back home after retiring from the Air Force. In 2006 while on my way to a local lake, I passed a sign for the Center. I didn't realize their administrative offices were so close to my home! I signed up to be a volunteer. In 2007 a position opened for a Data Entry/Membership Assistant and I applied. I got the job and am so honored to be a part of this organization. Every day I see the hard work the staff and volunteers do and the good they bring about. We are a very professional group of people dedicated to educating people about wolves. Knowledge is power, and the more people learn about wolves the better they will be able to provide for their well being. I remember my first trip to see our ambassador pack up in Ely. I got the the tingles so strong and the beauty of these animals just brought tears to my eyes. As much as I've been there, that same feeling never goes away. It's an absolute love story.
