from beagles, border collies, German Shepherds, golden
retrievers, huskies, Carolina Dog, Labrador, and various
experience includes six years of animals rescue with
the Wetzel County Animal Rescue in New Martinsville,
WV. I was actively involved with a no-kill animal rescue
organization including animal rescue, canine training,

as a dog handler and trainer and I continued with canine
handling and for two years became part of a wolf rescue
organization as a volunteer in caring for wolves that
have been in domestic settings that needed a safe place
when their domestic homes did not work out. I continue
to be active in wolf/wildlife education and preservation.
