Mission: The Shy Wolf Sanctuary, Education & Experience Center Inc., is a Multi-Purpose organization with the following goals. To provide a sanctuary for unwanted, abused and injured Wolves, Wolf-Dogs as well as for other exotic animals such as Panthers, Foxes, Coyotes and many others. The primary function encompassing some 60% of the organizations efforts is to provide shelter, feeding, cleaning, socialization and medical care of the animals. In addition to provide educational visits that allow individuals to interact with the animals.
Programs: The organization provides a sanctuary for unwanted, abused and abandoned exotic animals by providing food, shelter, medical care and rehabilitation. The organization has been a home to at least 36 wolves and wolf dogs, 4 foxes, 1 bobcat, 2 cougars, 5 sugar gliders, 5 prairie dogs, and 6 gopher tortoises. Educational tours have given new meaning to the word "wolf" to 3,835 adults and 1,098 children at the sanctuary. We have gone to 11 local elementary schools and provided educational programs to over 300 students to try and bring understanding about the wolf and their plight and these problems with back-yard breeders who sell wolf/dogs to people who do not really understand that these animals are caught between two worlds and are not dogs. Multiple outreach programs in 2010 enabled us to reach hundreds of people to spread kindness and understanding toward the wolf.
