Meet Etta

WolfWood welcomes another new member, the very sweet Etta. Etta came to us from a private party in Durango. They took good care of her but just could not keep her. She's energetic and a little shy. She already seems to be fitting in here at WolfWood!

Our heartfelt appreciation to Edward Aldrich, Sorrell Sky Gallery, Karen Littfin, and Bryce Pettit for making Wolfwood’s fundraiser a huge success. Even during these difficult times we are very fortunate the above mentioned team continues to support WolfWood and the money raised will help to sustain the refuge over the winter months.

Our second event at Sorrel Sky Galley was well attended by an equal mixture of refuge supporters and art lovers new to the mission of WolfWood. This was an excellent collaboration between Durango businesses, non-profits and the art community and an opportunity for WolfWood to attract new people to their cause of saving animals and education.  

WolfWood is now starting the infrastructure activities needed for the winter. New supplies are being stocked, vehicles and enclosures are getting extensive maintenance, and the animals are eating their fill of meat donated by processors to get ready for the winter. The Refuge is a busy place and we hope you will follow us on Facebook.

Thank you for your love and support.



Billy the Kid

One of the most difficult parts of rescue is dealing with the loss of the animals we love so deeply. Over a third of our animals are over 12 and we know we will continue to experience loss. As the animals and humans mourn we also celebrate the lives of the animals and the joy they had and were able to pass on to so many people. Without the compassion and generosity of so many people, many of the animals would not have been given the chance for such a good life.  Every animal we have lost leaves their tracks in our hearts.

Sadly we have lost yet another member of the Alaska nine pack.

Billy passed away from cancer. He and Ginger lived in their beautiful enclosure towards the back of the refuge. Billy was a big beautiful male and was one of the most photographed wolves at WolfWood. He and Ginger were famous for their very large den and their elusiveness. Billy loved his forest and took full advantage of the trees and terrain in his enclosure. He will be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to interact with him.

In a few weeks we will attempt to put Kweo in with Ginger and see how they do.


Some moments are too precious not to share.
