As the nation’s second-largest animal welfare grant maker, there’s nothing the ASPCA loves more than to see our grantees succeed. That’s why we were so thrilled to meet Wiley, a wolf-dog hybrid who stopped by the ASPCA office in New York City as part of an educational visit from Lockwood Animal Rescue Center (LARC).
Last October, the ASPCA provided LARC with a $50,000 grant to shelter 25 wolf-dog hybrids. The wolf-dogs were rescued from Dancing Brook Wolf Lodge, a sub-standard so-called “sanctuary” in Bristol, New Hampshire, after the owners were evicted from the property. Since wolf-dogs are not adoptable to the public, they needed a safe place to live and thrive. Through LARC’s “Warriors and Wolves” program, these giant canines have received daily care and rehabilitation from veterans, helping them heal from their respective traumatic experiences.

Please note: The ASPCA does not support exotic pet ownership. In most states, wolf-dog ownership is either illegal or restricted. We are grateful to organizations like LARC who provide these animals with much-needed sanctuary.
