Our organization is a nonprofit 501c3 (EIN 45-3911052), volunteer-only rescue organization. Although we strive to rescue and re-home Alaskan malamutes, wolfdogs, and other Nordic breeds, our main goal is to educate the public regarding the Nordic breed, the wolfdog and their wild cousin, the wolf.
We believe the merry-go-round of unwanted dogs being killed will not stop until people are educated and understand the dogs they have an interest in.
We are not breeders and believe that breeding should only be carried out to better the specific breed. We do not support volume breeders of ANY breed; there are reputable breeders for any breed of dog. DO YOUR HOMEWORK! Check with the national breed club or your local dog club. This includes wolfdogs. Although not an approved AKC breed, there are still reputable, responsible breeders of wolfdogs.
All of our dogs are supported strictly from donations or our personal funds. All work is done by wonderful volunteers who do not get paid for their services. We have NO paid employees. ALL funds that come in to us by donation go toward food, shelter, vet costs, and if we can squeeze any extra -- toys and treats. There are no salaried employees here, no expensive web developers, and no professional photographers. We are it, and whatever you can give in services, specialty, time or donations is always appreciated.
We are not a shelter or humane society. We are a group of volunteers working together to help the commonly misunderstood breeds that we love and wish to educate others about. The dogs you see here have come from owners who can no longer provide for them for one reason or another; from local shelters; or from law enforcement agencies who have removed them from abusive situations. Many of our dogs are in foster care, though we do have boarding and training partners that will house dogs who come to us unsuitable for foster care.
