The Wolf Connection (Wolf Connect) is a unique educational sanctuary and wilderness retreat center NGO that brings people together through direct relationships with rescued wolves for the purpose of empowering the next generation to become authentic leaders and stewards of the earth.
With the help of the animals, at-risk groups reconnect with nature, learn to be of service by responsibly caring for another being, and work towards becoming the kind of person they want to be through Wolf Therapy®.
The animals help them focus on their impulses, feelings and emotions in a constructive way; they learn to forgive and give others (and themselves) a second chance.
Wolf Therapy™: We provide at-risk groups the education, character, and skill-building resources in an emotionally, mentally, physically safe and supportive environment that will allow them to grow, thrive and become contributing community members.
Rescue: We improve the quality of life of large canines by providing rescue, sanctuary, and behavioral enrichment in order to strengthen the bond and collaboration between humans and animals.
Empowerment: We integrate the animal/nature experience in education, workshops, and retreats that build self-esteem, encourage personal growth and spiritual awareness, and help prepare for the future with positive values, realistic goals, and the powerful life skills needed to achieve those goals.
Impact: On the new ranch, we will expand our current services to include overnight and weekly stays allowing for more in-depth work, a residential facility for youth transitioning into independent living, and a retreat center where people from all walks of life can find healing and hope.
