Jessie Riggs – Woodland, California

I’ve been an active volunteer for a short while compared to other folks who have had this wonderful opportunity much longer than myself. It is always a very special treat for me to have the chance to speak out for the wolves, on behalf of Never Cry Wolf Rescue and Adoptions, whether it’s in-person at […]

Aren’t wolves responsible for the decimation of livestock?

Wolf Predation Plays Small Role in Livestock Losses in 2005 [checklist] In the continental U.S., health issues such as respiratory problems, digestive problems, calving complications and disease were overwhelmingly the most significant causes of cattle death in 2005.

Can you look a wolf in the eye?

Yes, you can.  We do all of the time whether it’s a new member coming in to the pack or an existing member that has been with us a long time.  Wolves are very loyal, loving, affectionate creatures.  To look them in the eye, is to receive a gift… the gift of a reflection of […]

Do wolves howl at the moon?

Are they called ‘wolf-dogs’ or ‘wolf-hybrids’?

Dogs and wolves are both members of the same species. Generally, a “hybrid” refers to a blending of one or more species. Since dogs and wolves are of the same species, they are classified as “wolf-dogs”. However, most people still refer to them as “wolf-hybrids”.

How can you tell the difference between a wolf and a dog?

The difference between a wolf and a dog are vast depending on the breed of a dog.  However, the Northern breeds such as Malamutes and Huskies that come somewhat close to the physical appearance of wolves can be differentiated by their looks, their mannerisms, the way they move to how they sound.  A simple list […]

Can just anyone adopt a wolf?

No.  Not just anyone can adopt a wolf-dog.  There is a list of requirements that potential owners must meet.  Wolf-dogs should never be adopted out to personalities who want a “great attack dog”, a dog that is a “good fighter” or just because “they look cool”.

Are they good with other dogs and animals?

Yet another common misconception that we need to address.  Yes, wolf-dogs are good with other dogs and even cats.  The domestic wolf-dog’s pack/family consists of the human members of the family, as well as, any other animal within that family.  New animals can be introduced into the family but like introducing any other breed of […]

Do you release them back into the wild?

Domestic wolves and/or wolf-dogs cannot be released back into the wild.   To release a domesticated wolf and/or wolf-dog into the wild, would be to evoke a very long and grueling death sentence on the animal.  Wolves, in the wild, only survive under the protection of the pack; a lone wolf has no chance for […]

How do you rehabilitate them?

The needs and extent of rehabilitation per each rescue is case specific.  There are some rescues that have been rescued from very abusive situations, i.e., used as target practice.  For rescues that are owner turn-ins and have no need for major rehabilitation, they are placed in approved foster homes.  For the hard-cases that have dealt […]

Aren’t they aggressive towards other people and animals?

No.  Wolves will run before they attack.  Some wolves will not even fight back or defend themselves when they’re under attack.  Others may attack if they’re cornered but man would do the same thing when his life is in danger.  The probability of a human being attacked from a Chihuahua is far greater than a […]

Where do the rescues come from?

We rescue wolf-dogs and wolves…basically, anything that the SPCA or Animal Control has deemed to have at least 1% wolf.  Sometimes these guys are just Malamutes and Huskies that they’re unsure of…all the way up to guys that might be full-bloods who don’t have paperwork to prove that they are full-blooded wolves and can’t go […]
