Have you planned your
Colorado Gives Day donation yet?

At WolfWood Refuge, our work revolves around rescue and rehabilitation, NOT breeding and selling. WolfWood provides a permanent home for unwanted and abused wolves and wolf/dogs. WolfWood also provides comprehensive information and education on wolf and wolf/dog behavior and the issues surrounding them.

Your donation helps us do all that. If you haven't yet, please consider donating to WolfWood Refugefor Colorado Gives Day. Thank you for your support. 

This year’s WolfWood Christmas Party will coincide with our wine event.

Please join volunteers and other friends of WolfWood for fun, fudge and wine!!!

Durango Farmers Holiday Market

Saturday December 11th from 9-2 at the La Plata County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall

Xena is coming plus new holiday gift options, including 2022 calendars.

We are in the planning stages for 2022. Stay tuned for further updates as they firm up.

Educational Outreach

Small gatherings such as Schools or Libraries continue being planned. Contact Paula for further information.

Next to saving the lives of animals, our educational programs are our number one priority. We believe that exposing the public to these special animals and bringing understanding about wolves will make a positive difference. It is extremely rewarding to hear a child who started off the tour saying "I'm afraid they will eat me" change to "This was the best field trip ever!"    Here are some of the programs WolfWood has done previously:

SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES: When we visit schools, we take animals with us. We do an hour long educational talk and show the wolves on stage. Occasionally there is time for petting if the program is for a smaller audience. Sometimes we do two assemblies and see an entire school in one afternoon! We are often asked back because the kids love the presentations.

TOURS AND FIELD TRIPS: Schools and different organizations come to the refuge for service projects or days with the wolves. This is an opportunity for a first hand look at rescue work, gets participants outside in nature and teaches a lot about wolves and wolf/dogs. In a typical year, WolfWood will provide 50 different educational programs.

COMMUNITY EVENTS: We also get involved with community groups. We went to see the Ignacio Boys and Girls Club as part of their mentoring program. The Girl Scouts came for their annual weekend camp. Last year we had almost 170 people! The girls earned their service badges and had a weekend of classes and wolf interaction. These are a wonderful examples of a great partnership and we appreciate all the time and effort the staff and rangers put into this event. I am so proud of the work we do with youth.

The wolves do not belong to us, they are in our care and we never charge anyone for the learning and growing experience of interacting with them. I hope you, as our friends and supporters, realize what a difference you are making in the lives of animals and humans alike.
