Review for United States Wolf Refuge and Adoption Center, Sparks, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Meeting Bill Chamberlain over five years ago changed my life. I volunteer for my local animal shelter and came across my first wolf-dog back then. He was young and had been surrendered to the shelter with euthanasia orders because they could not deal with what is normal for a wolf-dog. Meeting Voyager changed my life and saved not only his life but many more to follow. I felt the need to help with every bit of energy that I had. I became Bill's right hand person and jumped right in and began trying to help raise money and help with positive change. Raising money for our pack is not easy by any means. We fall into a very unique category. Most donors won't even consider helping. These animals are not wild life and they are not considered by many to be "pets". They are most definitely NOT backyard dogs. They are however, when understood, one of the most magnificent man- made misfits on this earth. If you are loved by a wolf or a wolf-dog, you are a very special person. Bill works harder than any man I have ever known. He puts in unbelieveably long days taking care of his animals and then his job...always in that order. His pack always comes first before anything! These animals adore him, respect him and always greet him with tails held high and alot of happy howling. I continue to fight along side him and look forward to many years of rescuing and helping many, many more wolves & wolf-dogs.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the gratification of saving a life and seeing it loved with a new family

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not do a thing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

interaction with these magnificent animals and making a difference.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful, hardworking, caring people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save more lives and educate the public about these animals.

Ways to make it better...

we had more funding and volunteers available.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of fundraising opportunities.

One thing I'd also say is that...

If you are looking for a worthy cause, you have found it!
