Shy Wolf Sanctuary ‘On the Table SWFL’ discussion to highlight the healing connection between people and animals

Shy Wolf Sanctuary Education and Experience Center will be hosting 10 special guests for an ‘On The Table SWFL’ discussion on Thursday, March 30, 2023, from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM. The event will be facilitated by the organization’s Executive Director, Deanna Deppen.


Guests that are registered for the Shy Wolf Sanctuary table will learn more about the organization’s Healing Hearts Program and how the connection between humans and animals promotes emotional and psychological healing. Most of the Sanctuary’s resident animals were rescued from abuse, neglect, and abandonment, but with the right care and support they are able to recover and live their best lives. Through the Healing Hearts program, Shy Wolf facilitates a connection between these animals and people who have suffered through similar traumatic situations. The animals teach the importance of kindness, forgiveness, and unconditional love to heal from the wounds of the heart and give courage for the future.


On The Table SWFL encourages groups, organizations, friends, and neighbors to gather around a small table to create meaningful conversations that will benefit the communities within Southwest Florida. Through these discussions, important issues and themes will also be identified and shared to serve as a reference for future priorities that will need to be addressed to better the community.


This is a one-day event that hopes to create a catalyst for change. It is a free public table open for anyone who is interested to listen and discuss Shy Wolf Sanctuary’s programs, mission, and vision. Seats are still available at
