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

Rating: 5 stars  

We have been involved in animal rescue for 30 yrs. Bill was the very first 'wolfer' we ever met.This was right on time due to the fact that we rescued a cross unlike any other 'dog'. That was 14+ years ago. Many animals have passed through our gates.The only ones to ever leave were Curly,Stubby and Floppy.U.S.Wolf Refuge was good enough to take on this lifetime committment. What is truly remarkable is their education program.Wolves are not pets.The unsuspecting public too often purchases from an unscrupulous breeder. Bill has been active regarding the rabies issue,wolf release program and many other issues these animals face. Our first journey together was hiking many miles into the desert to investigate a horrible milling situation of high content animals. It is often like a bottomless pit but Bill never seems to 'hit the wall' like many of us in rescue do. Bill has also been very generous in sharing information and resources wishing for all good rescues to flourish.Why?Because it is about the animals and always has been. Much of his work has been out of pocket. I would encourage anyone to visit,volunteer and please donate to the refuge. As a community we can all help the work go on.No donation is too small.That is the easy part.Caring for the animals,protecting the public and educating,securing resources and giving the wolves a voice on a daily basis is the hard part. Please participate in keeping this lifetime effort going. Thank you, steph barsotti

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

their generosity accepting 3 Idaho rescues for life.

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

have a massive slush fund for vetting

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

The work is done with joy and committment.

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

All dedicated and from all walks of life

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

Grow all programs and offer full time focus to wolf issues.

Ways to make it better...

we all could have donated more time and resources

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

economic hardships and perhaps the freedom to travel with educational programs.

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

U.S. Wolf Refuge is always a work in progress. This has been a lifetime promise to the animals. They can use all of our support to keep the good work going.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
