Kuna Kummunity is our donor program, named in honour of our first wolfdog, Kuna. It is comprised of dedicated givers, from all around the world, that show how passion and perseverance can save a wild heart. Once you become a monthly donor, you automatically gain access to this exclusive program.

The ongoing financial contributions from our monthly donors ensure that we are able to plan ahead for major projects, continue our rescue efforts, expand on our public educational programs, provide our resident wolfdogs with the optimal quality of life, and have the best staff possible taking care of them.

Every donation helps feed, care for, transport, and rehome an adoptable wolfdog. It can also give a high-content wolfdog a permanent home at our Sanctuary. Your one-time donation can help directly impact the life of a wolfdog in an immediate, measurable way.
