The Wolf Connection

Military & Veterans Affairs has partnered with The Wolf Connection

A unique educational sanctuary and wilderness retreat center that brings people together through direct relationship with rescued wolves for the purpose of empowering the next generation to become authentic leaders and stewards of the earth. With the help of the animals, at-risk groups reconnect with nature, learn to be of service by responsibly caring for another being, and work towards becoming the kind of person they want to be through Wolf Therapy®. The animals help them focus on their impulses, feelings and emotions in a constructive way; they learn to forgive and give others (and themselves) a second chance. Military & Veterans Affairs has partnered with The Wolf Connection–a wolf sanctuary–to provide women veterans a resilient community. For more info, call 1-877-4LA-VETS.
