From The Wolf Sanctum in Bakersville, NC Mountains:
"The Wolf Sanctum was founded to provide a sanctuary for captive born wolves . We house both wolves and wolf dogs. We strive to provide a safe and secure habitat, where these animals can live out the remainder of their lives in an environment that takes their nutritional and social needs into consideration. Our wolves come from diverse backgrounds.....some displaced, some from roadside zoos, some from backyard breeders, some even "found" wandering...some even from loving homes that could no longer keep them. We don't always know what types of lives they have led, or even how they will react to different stimuli or to different individuals. They do all have one thing in common...a safe refuge is desperately needed... "
