The primary focus of the Sanctuary is to drive public awareness and education on wolfdogs. There are many misconceptions surrounding these animals, and backyard breeders take advantage of the misconceptions to create a market for wolfdogs as exotic pets. The majority of the wolfdogs at the Sanctuary are from people surrendering them after failing to have them as pets in their homes.

So we turn our attention to educating the public on the true nature of wolfdogs and the negative outcomes for the many intentionally bred high-content wolfdogs who end up being displaced. We do support rehoming low content wolfdogs that would do well in specific homes.
