First I would like to thank-you for considering finding a permanent refuge for the animal that you have, many wouldn't have tried to do even this much for the animal. So, on behalf of all unwanted and homeless hybrids, and other animals,

THANK-YOU FOR CARING!

   Most of the people I talk to can solve the problem they are having with their animal by calling our hotline at 623-546-9653. Here we will give you tips, advice, and problem solving techniques so you can conquer the animal within, and live with your animal for a long and wonderful life (preferable to death at the pound, or elsewhere).

THANK-YOU FOR CARING!

   Money and Health (or lack thereof) are the main reasons people give up their animals next to behavioral problems. Unfortunately WWR cannot solve these problems, but may be able to offer tips to help get around some of these issues either temporarily or permanently. Feel free to call us and ask for our help, although we cannot guarantee a solution, you never know what the universe may turn up!

THANK-YOU FOR CARING!

   If you email us pictures of the animal that needs placement along with all other relevant information on the animal and it's circumstances. Please include where the animal is currently also, I can't tell an email from Australia from a local email! Please include a CONTACT name, phone number, and email. WWR may be able to place the dog locally, or refer it over to a rescue that can help or has room to work with the dog. WWR can also post this animal on various sites on the internet to help bring in adopters. pangaya@msn.com 

THANK-YOU FOR CARING!

   Currently WWR is NOT taking in new animals I am sorry to say. This is primarily due to a collapse of our economy, and a serious lack of funding and donations on the part of the general public. Our board members have certainly each put in their fair share. Our Veterinarian does great work for next to nothing, and donates many medications and other necessary medical supplies also. Arizona Humane Society Donates Dog Food to us as much as they can afford to spare (Thank-you again AZ HS!). But it takes more than just these things to make a rescue run. The dogs need WATER and COOLING  in the DESERT! Where Wolves Rescue keeps 20-40 animals on the premises at all times, but we can no longer do that if we can't be guaranteed to pay the water bill. As some of you know we also have a problem with our water source and supply, it is now sucking water out of the ground but that water is filthy and full of mud and nitrates among other nasty things. This requires yearly cleaning of the Clean Water Products filtration system and runs about 1000$ a year.  Please see the link to the blog. So please consider becoming one of a small elite few and make a pledge of 20$ or more a month for the next year to help keep Where Wolves Rescue keep on rescuing. Meanwhile, WWR has been helping by regularly placing animals through a network of referrals and people wishing to adopt. It has been very effective and most animals are getting out of High kill shelters even in this manner. So please contact us if you need help in any way. 

THANK-YOU FOR CARING!

   Then they need to be fed. After twenty + years of rescue, there are changes. Feeding used to take 15-20 minutes. Now it is almost an hour to feed them all. Six separate trips across the property carrying bowls of food because I can no longer physically carry the five gallon bucket anymore. The elderly ones have special requirements, both for feeding and for general maintenance. (What goes in must come out! GRIN!). Large Pooch Pads are a must, or  Many elderly animals are old enough now to deserve soft beds to put their tired old bones on. No one has sent us any dogs beds, and they cost money which no one has sent either. So they sleep on straw. Which also costs money, all be it less. 

   Since they sleep, live, and play outdoors, they need fly and bug spray to keep the flies off, this costs money and no one has sent it, nor have they sent the fly spay either. In the summer, WWR goes through a pint of fly spray a day! Between a half a gallon and a gallon a week!

   It is HOT in Phoenix Arizona  in the summer time. HOW HOT IS IT? Well it IS hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk. You can put your food in foil on the dash and come out from work to find lunch cooked and ready. WWR and the animals survived 126 degree heat one summer. But it is quite unfair of you to ask this of us and of the animals at their age. Imagine if you were  125 years old having to live outdoors and sit on the hard ground in 110 degree heat. Not a pleasant thought is it? And you're not wearing a fur coat! So cooling is necessary for the animals. No one has helped provide misters, fans, or evaporative coolers for the animals, and WWR will not suffer this heat.

   Thanks to Central Arizona Project and a new aquifer recharging program that has moved in next door, WWR has suffered through  2 summers without the use of our well (for those of you city folk, it's the thing that the rest of us get water out of!). The Central Arizona Project has provided us (although begrudgingly) with water during the remedy for the problem (ie . drilling a new well that produces clean water). The whole situation has put an enormous amount of physical and  financial stress on the rescue that is unprecedented. The need for water is undeniable, but the wheels of the government are slow to turn and whether they can get this thing solved is still to be seen. So far they (Government Hydrogeologists) have been wrong about everything that has happened due to the new recharge project. Central Arizona Project and Arizona Department of Water resources has had to be dragged kicking and screaming in to court to even discuss some of these issues, let alone solve them. If you can help, if you are an attorney, or if you care to write letters on our behalf please call WWR at 623-546-9653. Please see our blog for further water updates.
