Shy Wolf Sanctuary Education and Experience Center coordinated with Big Oak Wolf Sanctuary located in Northeast Florida in a joint rescue effort to save and provide veterinary services to seven feral eight-month-old wolfdogs. These pups were part of an intentional litter that the breeder was not able to sell. Irresponsible breeding is a major problem that impacts domestic and exotic animals alike.  


When Big Oak Wolf Sanctuary transferred this family of seven into its enclosure, Shy Wolf Sanctuary stepped in to cover the spay and neuter expenses.  That many animals in one rescue is a major commitment and undertaking. The rescued siblings consist of five males and two females. Spaying and neutering are essential to prevent unsafe breeding practices and unwanted litters as they approach breeding age. These procedures also help prevent serious health issues such as uterine infections and cancer. 


With the efforts of both organizations, these neglected pups are now safe and slowly getting used to their new life in their spacious home at Big Oak Wolf Sanctuary. Shy Wolf Sanctuary’s mission of rescuing abandoned, neglected, and abused animals extends beyond Southwest Florida. Their team is grateful to be able to provide any kind of assistance to help all animals in need and values partnering with other organizations to save more lives.
