In 1995, Jacqui Evans, the founder of the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary in Ramah, NM, (formerly known as Candy Kitchen Rescue Ranch) graciously entrusted two high content wolf-dogs to me. These were a husband-and-wife pair named Washté and Wopila.
These two special beings entered my life and changed me forever. Since I first met Washté and Wopila, many others have come and gone. I have rescued and placed countless numbers of wolves and wolf-dogs in loving, respectful families and homes. They inspired, and continue to inspire, my passion and determination to rescue as many of these wonderful animals as possible, to work to end the breeding of wolves and wolf-dogs as pets, and to provide opportunities for people to get to know these marvelous creatures.
Washté was a white German Shepherd mixed with gray wolf. She passed away in October 1998. Wopila lived to the healthy, happy age of 19!
