Canine Search and Rescue volunteers pass  Basic Cadaver Certification

Congratulations to two of our volunteers for successfully challenging and passing the Florida Law Enforcement Canine Association’s (FLECA) Basic Cadaver Certification! Lola the Dingo and her handler, Deanna Deppen, and Denise Parker and her Belgian Tervuren, Cole, were officially certified on August 4th.
In Memory of Yiska
We said goodbye to our Yiska on Thursday, October 13, 2016. None of us were prepared for him to leave us. Monday he ate and seemed fine.  Wednesday he wouldn't eat. We sedated him and took him to the vet shortly after lunch.  His bonded mate Luna cried for him all afternoon. X-rays revealed he had a growth that perforated his intestine. Emergency surgery was performed and he spent the night at the emergency vet.  
Why I volunteer: Melanie Edmonds

I've loved wolves all my life.  My father used to own a manganese mine out in New Mexico. Seeing wolves in the wild at Yellowstone Park for the first time made me fall in love with them and finding Shy Wolf Sanctuary to volunteer is like living out my dream.
