When it went wrong, 2012 we lost everything, were homeless, living in my little SUV, with a herniated L5/S1 disc in my back and a pinched sciatic nerve. The US Wolf Refuge came in and saved us. If not for Bill Chamberlin at the US Wolf Refuge, I have no idea where we would be, of if we would even be a "we" anymore. We separated for a few months, until I can get well and back on my feet. I found a job in Tahoe City, CA, a place to live, and got Gianni back. 

I started Jerky Wolf, as a means to give back to the US Wolf Refuge, and donate a percentage of our profits to continually go to the US Wolf Refuge. It grew from there. There is so much I would like to say about how we got to where we are, from homeless and being separated, we are now back together, and it is all thanks to Bill Chamberlin and the US Wolf Refuge. Thank you Bill Chamberlin.


 US Wolf Refuge

We recently received a desperate phone call from a person totally down on his luck. He had gotten sick which led to him losing his job. This led to a downward spiral where he lost his home and his car. He wound up walking the streets of Reno with his dog. He was unable to stay with his friends because their apartment complex didn't allow pets.

Gianni is a 6 year-old in-tact male that he has had since he was 6 weeks old. He is an absolute love-bug that is as comfortable on the couch as he is chasing rabbits. He does have some slight separation anxiety though. He seems to get along with everyone but Takoda. They growl and snarl at each other, but have not been given the opportunity to take that any further.

We extended to Gianni's owner the option to get his dog back when he gets his life back together and can provide him a safe and secure home. Gianni is the only wolf at the Refuge that is in-tact and he will be neutered as soon as funds and time allow.
