I have loved all animals from the time I could speak. From big to small there was no animal I didn’t connect with. I would always come home with some animal needing help or some stray without a home. There has always been this amazingly special place for wolves in my heart. From their soulful singing to their intelligence and adaptability.
In 2011 I bought my first low content wolfdog which was sold as a high content. I didn’t love Grace any less but it kick started me into getting into the community to see if there was others with the same love for wolves/wolfdog and the thirst for knowledge. That path brought me to a wonderful rescue – In Harmony with Nature (IHWN). I volunteered there and Kim really took me under her wing. From behavioral work to animal husbandry I learned a ton of things. I have gotten to volunteer at other sanctuaries also to expand my knowledge. There is something so amazing sitting with these wonderful animals looking into their eyes when they look back at you it’s like they see your soul, they understand no matter what you have gone through in your life you leave it on the other side of the fence. It is only you and them in that moment.
I’m so happy to be a part of Wolfdog Radio to learn more and be more involved with the community!
I took over Lost Wolf Rescue a 501c3 organization after the opportunity was offered to me. It was an amazing opportunity to understand being a director and the responsibilities that it entailed. I was only 21 at the time. Along with running the wolfdog rescue album online with my partner Debbie. At almost 24 now I have experience from low content to high content along with pure wolves and I love every minute of it.
Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul has remained unawakened.
