Please Help Dearborn Wolf Sanctuary on #givingtuesday

Other living creatures are just like us.

To survive, they need the basics: food and shelter and medical care.

We can relate, right?

And that’s why Mel needs help for his rescued (abused) wolves and wolf hybrids.

From an enlightened reader who made me realize I had not included very important information about these animals: “…They were rescued from fools who keep animals like tigers, monkeys and wolves as pets. And then decide they’re not cute anymore, or they’re too much work, or whatever…”

And it’s really, really, REALLY true…even just a few dollars helps.

*A week of Starbucks. 

*Spare change.

That kind of thing.

It shouldn’t hurt to give, ya know?

If all of my 3,000 followers and friends were able to #give just a little bit, it would help SO much and you’d be doing SO MUCH GOOD.

Thank you for helping!!

I’ve always loved wolves; I first became active in the 70s, doing what I could to support their originally being listed as an Endangered Species, and more recently, I spoke at the Fish and Wildlife Services hearing in Sacramento.

I wrote about that experience here: Saving Wolves

The wolf is an amazing animal that deserves to be protected and defended.

And saved.

However,

…Not everybody is as well-funded as Capt. Watson and his Sea Shepherd defenders and protectors of ocean creatures.

…Not everybody has the fundraising savvy of PETA or Defenders of Wildlife.

…Not every organization has a Washington, DC lobbyist.

But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t help others who dedicate their lives and sacrifice everything to save animals in danger.

There are angels all over this country who are committed to 24/7 care of abused and neglected wolves.

There are those heroes among us who DO the work, even though they might not be PR or social media savvy and have a staff to handle all the admin duties.

I admire the men and women who are in the trenches, the boots-on-the-ground caregivers  who feed and love and care for these beautiful and much maligned animals.

Dearborn Wolf Sanctuary can REALLY use our help. 

His mission is simple but very powerful:

” We rescue wolves and wolf-hybrids that are unwanted, abused, etc. We give them a loving home with three acres to run and play, and all the food they can eat.”

I donated a couple months ago, and I’m going to donate again.

Will you help, too?

  1. Looks like a great cause. I definitely agree wolves should be saved.
    But, um, I’m a bit uncomfortable with the Dearborn Wolf Sanctuary FB pictures of wolves being petted, wolfdogs living indoors. I guess I’d prefer they remain as wild as possible, but within the sanctuary somehow.
    I absolutely support saving them though! So kudos to you, Princess Rosebud.

    • Sarah, these are rescued and abused animals that people wanted as pets but couldn’t handle because you can’t really train a wild or mostly wild animal. They had all been previously socialized (and abused) so that is why they are being loved. This is not a situation where they are meant to be sent back into the wilderness. They would not survive. I hope that clarifies.

      • Oh, now I get it. They were rescued from fools who keep animals like tigers, monkeys and wolves as pets. And then decide they’re not cute anymore, or they’re too much work, or whatever. Thank you for clarifying!
        Well, then you and sanctuary owner are angels after all!

      • I think I’m going to add your well written sentences in the post, just in case any one else has the same thoughts, cos I know I would too if I wasn’t aware of the situation! Sometimes you get so close to something, it’s hard to see it from an objective POV. Thank you!! I’m not an angel, but poor Mel is, He’s pretty desperate, wish he wasn’t so far away and I could physically help him…

  2. I meant to say, “Then you are and the sanctuary owners are true angels!” But the new WordPress changes seem to block editing of comments.

    As to a separate post, I wasn’t able to dig up your email address. But my writing these days is more client and corporate related. However, I’ll send a donation to the wolf sanctuary!
