Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue
It is the mission and goal of Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue to save Wolves, Wolfdogs - and
dogs that resemble wolves -fromabuse, abandonment, neglect and euthanasia; to rehabilitate them both
physically and emotionally using a holistic approach; and to find qualified foster homes for them
until adoption or until a suitable sanctuary is found. LTWR endeavors to educate the public about the
right and wrong reasons to own a Wolfdog, and to eventually put an end to the irresponsible breeding and
buying of Wolves and Wolfdogs. Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue is a not-for-profit all-volunteer
Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue is not a sanctuary and we do not
"take in" dogs on our property. We endeavor to help find qualified Foster Homes until the dog can be placed
in a permanent and qualified
We have a very successful adoption rate and although it takes a
little longer because we are ever so picky, over 95% of the dogs posted on our website find good
homes. We do not discriminate by helping only easy-to-place dogs. In fact, most of the dogs
posted require a great deal of time and energy to find appropriate adopters who can care for them
Our objective is to work cohesively with shelters, current
owners, and qualified adopters.We network
nationwide with many other Rescue groups,Sanctuaries, and
not-for-profit organizations. We dointerviews,
reference checks and Home Visits for all applicants in order to find suitable homes for these
We have found that
it is usually the lack of education about the behavior of Wolfdogs that causes the owners of these animals to give
up on their animals. All puppies are cute and cuddly and these babies are most endearing but knowing about the
breed can prevent heartache and needless suffering for the animal. Most people with good intent try to raise
Wolfdogs from pups only to later realize that they are not dealing with a typical dog. Many breeders do not properly qualify their buyers and don't care if the
dog is later passed around or winds up at a shelter. Their aim is to make money, so often they will not inform
buyers of the specific behaviors to be expected. Wolfdogs have special needs that most people don't
understand or are not willing to take the time and effort to work with. For example, feeding an inadequate
diet [of inexpensive commercial dry food usually bought in grocery stores] can often have disastrous results
over long term, causing poor digestion, various diseases, or irritability that leads to unwanted behaviors.
Leaving a Wolfdog in a back yard or tethered on a cable often results in the Wolfdog becoming aggressive,
fearful, or unsociable.

to an environment where they will not get the daily care and attention they need. Visiting the Rescue Gallery and

they will be well cared for - for the remainder of their lives.We always try to adopt our rescues into homes
that will continue a holistic regime of a high-quality real-meat diet, behavior training, and lots of daily
exercise. They all need escape-proof containment.

appropriate experience, environment and lifestyle to give one of these special animals a home, please contact the Person of Contact [POC] found at the bottom of each Bio. As part
of the process the POC will carefully review your Adoption
Application to ensure a good match. Someone will then call for a phone interview and set
up a Home Visit to verify that you truly have what it takes to give a Wolfdog a happy and secure home.
Qualified Foster Homes are also badly needed to give a rescue temporary sanctuary until an appropriate adopter
can be found. To find out more about what we do, please visit our About Us page. Donationsare also greatly appreciated and help us
to continue our rescue efforts to save even more animals. When
