I am Jeremy Albrecht, Director at Shy Wolf Sanctuary, an exotic animal sanctuary in Naples, FL. We are a 100% rescue sanctuary full of animals that were normally bred to be pets, a few non-releasable wildlife rehabs, and a lot of extremely dedicated volunteers. We operate as a 501-c3 non-profit and survive solely on donations. Currently, our number one initiative is to purchase a new property and relocate our facility. This will give us the ability to expand our operation exponentially, so a lot of our energy and fundraising is being spent on realizing that dream.
You might recognize us from the "Girl with the giant wolf" posts. Here are the posts that made our boy Yuki famous: https://www.reddit.com/r/interestingasfuck/comments/asx9pv/you_wouldnt_always_guess_it_but_wolves_are_very/ And https://www.reddit.com/r/interestingasfuck/comments/ataark/im_the_girl_from_the_giant_wolf_post_heres/
Reddit made Yuki famous and since he has appeared all over the place. https://www.georgetakei.com/florida-animal-sanctuary-steps-in-to-save-giant-wolfdog-after-his-owner-dumps-him-at-a-kill-shelter-2630328683.html https://www.boredpanda.com/rescue-story-dogwolf-yuki-shy-wolf-sanctuary/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=organic
We are also very proud of a program we developed called the “Healing Hearts” program. It is a public outreach program where we attempt to bring abused, neglected, and abandoned people together with abused, neglected, and abandoned animals. You can read more about that program here: https://shywolfsanctuary.org/education/healing-hearts/
