Shy Wolf Sanctuary Education and Experience Center is pleased to announce that its signature fundraising concert, WolfStock 2020, raised $30,000. Proceeds from the event will support the sanctuary’s ongoing efforts to rescue and provide emergency care for abused, abandoned, and neglected exotic animals that would otherwise be euthanized, simply for being born.
Through its 20+ year history, Shy Wolf Sanctuary has rescued well over 1,300 wolves, wolfdogs, and other captive-bred exotic animals like the viral wolfdog sensation Yuki. After living at Shy Wolf for 12 years, Yuki died peacefully in his sleep on November 12. There are hundreds more animals around the country like Yuki, in need of rescue, which is why the organization is expanding in Southwest Florida.
WolfStock 2020 was a hybrid concert livestreamed on Facebook. The event featured the high-energy, lyrical entertainment of Justin Ross, a founding musician of WolfStock, and the prolific work of Henry Gross, founding member of the Fifties Revival Group “Sha Na Na.” In addition to the concert, supporters were able to bid on over 100 auction items that included both in-person experiences and virtual learning opportunities, food and wine, golf, fishing charters, art, and fine jewelry.
