SITUATION ON NON-PROFIT STATUS:
The owner of Wolf People, Nancy Taylor, has recently created a separate nonprofit corporation called Wildlife Organization Learning Facility or W.O.L.F. Wolf People is affiliated and associated with W.O.L.F, and any donations made towards Wolf People are sent to the separate bank account for W.O.L.F. The donations that are sent to the nonprofit corporation, W.O.L.F, are tax deductible and redirected to our main organization, Wolf People.
Wildlife Organization Learning Facility is connected to Wolf People under the management of Wolf People’s owner, Nancy Taylor. Wildlife Organization Learning Facility is a new organization with the goal of providing education about our wildlife as well as a learning experience to the public. Wildlife Organization Learning Facility’s primary mission is to teach truthful and biological information to the public about our main wildlife animal, the gray wolf (canis lupus). W.O.L.F will be linked to Wolf People, but the new facility will expand from our initial species, the gray wolf, to a wider range of wildlife animals for education. We appreciate your support.
WOLF PEOPLE is now offering 3 month Internships to those who qualify and would like to work with our Wolf Handler, Bill Ross, and our pack of 22 wolves.
Wolf People was formed in 1993 by Bill and Nancy Taylor. Bill now resides in Arkansas; however, he stays closely in touch with Wolf People and all the wolves. Shortly after moving to North Idaho with our wolf dogs and one pure wolf, we realized that people knew very little about this beautiful, intelligent animal. we grew tired of hearing “aren’t you afraid they are going to turn on you” or “have they ever attacked you”?
So, when a building went up for sale close to home, we bought it with the intention of turning it into a Wolf Education Facility where we could teach about wolves and show the loving side of them that I had come to know and love.
I have lived with wolves for 20 years and currently have 23 wolves in my pack. Not only do we educate at our facility, but we go out into the public with our wolves to schools, parks, places of business and also have tours come to our store. Recently, we started tours up to the main compound for people to meet the rest of the pack and see them as they live in their natural habitat. The tours are fun, educational, enlightening and photographers have a ball.
We have made an educational video with our wolves that is 48 minutes long, full of wolves and wolf information. We also offer franchises and presently have a franchise in South Dakota with more interests in Montana, California and Arkansas.
There is much controversy on the wolf today, and we continue to educate so that the wolf will be protected as he lives in the wild and is left alone to keep our ecosystem alive, well and balanced.
Some of our wolves have been in the movies. Back in 1993, 3 of our little wolf hybrid cubs made a movie called “White Wolves ll, Legend of the Wild”. I had the honor of being the trainer and handler, and what a wonderful experience that was.
Last year one of our cubs went to an animal trainer who has a licensed facility in Canada. He named her “Sweet Pea” and he took her to Siberia, Russia, to star in the movie “WOLF”, which will be out around December 2009. We have pictures of the making of the movie as you enter our site.
This year he got our 2 babies to play the part of being her cubs this spring which will finish the movie. They all flew by “private jet” from Canada to Russia in July and will return in late August, once their “acting” jobs are done. I don’t know about the babies, but I do know that “Sweet Pea” will be in many more movies as the trainer was very impressed with her intelligence and acting ability. We will let you know when “WOLF” is out and hopefully have copies of the movie to purchase in the store. We have some photos of “Sweet Pea” on the movie set that we wanted to share with you. She is the daughter of our beautiful Coco Cabe and Hedge, who passed away shortly before she was born. He will live in our hearts and through his beautiful daughter, “Sweet Pea”!
Thank you for your support!
