Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary 2020

Last weekend Julie, my Mom, and I visited the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary. It was the second time that my mom and I have visited, and this time we brought along Julie. Mom and I last visited in 2018; you can view my post here.

Both of them thoroughly enjoyed visited the sanctuary. There were a few changes this times due to COVID-19; people had to sanitize their hands before entering the complex, and they also had to have their parties separated by 2 metres, which actually made for a better experience in my opinion.

Their wolfhound pup named Finn, who was born in 2018, was all grown up now. It’s amazing to see how big he grew!

Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary

A few day’s ago I took my mom to the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary. It was a very late Christmas present because we had both been busy or unavailable during the first half of the year.

The sanctuary was started in June 2011 by Georgina De Caigny and Andi Scheibenstock because they recognized a need for a knowledgeable and experienced rescue organization that would make the rehabilitation and rehoming of displaced wolfdogs a priority. It’s one of the largest sanctuaries within Canada. The sanctuary is currently home to 23 wolfdogs.

I highly recommend visiting the sanctuary if you want to learn more about wolfdogs, see some super cute wolfdogs, and support the non-profit sanctuary. The website for the sanctuary is yamnuskawolfdogsanctuary.com
