Valley Spirit Caretaker

Valley Spirit (known as Mama) and another wolf-dog named Talon were confiscated from their owner by animal control, and taken to a local shelter. Mission: Wolf was contacted, and we agreed to take the two animals. Two days before she was to arrive, Mama gave birth to four pups: Buku, Batman, Oreo, and Asia. The six arrived at the refuge in the spring of 2009.

Staff carried the crate containing Mama and the pups down to a wooded enclosure. When we opened the crate door, Mama immediately began investigating her new home. Upon finding an old den she cleaned it out and one by one carried her pups down to it. Mama, Talon, and the pups all lived together until the pups matured and were separated into their own packs.

Today, Mama, Talon and Asia live to together in the lower half of the sanctuary, far away from humans. Two of her other pups, Buku and Oreo, live in a neighboring enclosure, and all of them can often be heard barking and howling to each other, especially if a critter happens to run by.
