(via Rescued wolf dogs howling for a new home - NBC-2.com WBBH News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Naples, Florida)
I find this bit to be problematic, “The more than 100-pound wolves are nothing more than docile dogs. If you think you have what it takes to adopt these guys, call the sanctuary.”
No, no, no! Wolfdogs require a hell of a lot more care and specialized housing to keep them safely. I’m sure the sanctuary will stress those points with anyone who calls to try and adopt the animals, but it sure would be great if the news wouldn’t make people think they are the same as taking care of a pure dog. Hopefully the news will help them in placing the animals, but still.
Statements like that will just land them right back in a rescue scenario or euthanized. Yeesh though, looks like they were already in a pretty bad situation to begin with :(
Holy hell, I live in Fort Myers. I wasn’t aware of this…I really do hope they find the proper homes they deserve!
