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.
