15 Wolves Rescued From Fur Farm Are Given New Home At The Wildlife Waystation
I recently had the chance to check out the wonderful Wildlife Waystation in Sylmar, CA which is now home to 15 beautiful wolves -rescued from a fur farm in the Midwest. After a long and tiring journey across the other side of the country, the wonderful people at the Wildlife Waystation and Lockwood Animal Rescue Center worked together to help save these wolves from abuse and torture.
Now, after a couple of months, these wolves, which have been divided into packs, have settled into their new home in Sylmar, where they have plenty of room to run around and are well taken care of by the wonderful staff of Veterinarians and volunteers. Matt Simmons who is the Co-Founder of LARC, leading the rescue operation said “These wolves had literally been snuck out under the cover of darkness”. Since then, this disgusting place that was housing these wolves for their pelts and (of course) for financial gain, has now been forced to stop operating after violating several codes, including the federal endangered species act.
The Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute is now focusing more time on studying about the Grey wolf and becoming more knowledgeable about managing a healthy wolf population with cryopreservation and other reproductive techniques for this particular species.
The Wildlife Waystation founded by Martine Colette, is an amazing place that houses many other animals including Chimpanzees, Tigers and Lions who may have been sick or put in harms way.
There are many other ways people can help or volunteer to support this wonderful non-profit organization that dedicate their lives to saving these amazing animals who deserve healthy and happy lives.
