Adoptable animals
We are still looking for that perfect home for our low-content wolf-dog Harley. She is a sweet and sociable girl who has mostly dog behaviors but can be a challenge for owners with other dogs. Click below to learn more about Harley and how you can give her a forever home.
Welcome Mohan
Introducing our newest member of the Shy Wolf Sanctuary, Mohan. Mohan came to us a few days ago as his previous owners were moving and could not find a place to live that would allow him. They got Mohan as a pup, socialized him, loved him and then they had to look for a safe place for him to retire and contacted us. We have welcomed him with open arms and paired him with our wonderful ambassador Dancer.
Healing Hearts Program
We have a great program called Healing Hearts, where we work with children Youth Haven, Children's Network, PACE Center for Girls, Valerie's House and the Naples Women and Children's Shelter. These children have tough lives and have come from varied backgrounds, we bring them out to the sanctuary to meet our animals and hear their stories of how they overcame abuse, neglect and abandonment and learned how to trust and love again. Watching the children connect with one of our animals is very rewarding. We do an art project with them and feed them lunch. Our founder, Nancy Smith, has a talk with them about courage, what they want to do with their lives, and how they can be anything they want to be. The kids all take home a goodie bag with a special necklace containing wolf hair from our very courageous blind wolf Indy. To request to become part of this program, please click the button below.
