We recently received a unique request for our services from another New Mexico-based organization, Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. For those not familiar, Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing displaced, unwanted, and non-releasable captive-bred wolves, wolfdogs, and other wild canid species. Each rescue is provided with permanent, safe sanctuary and lifelong care through nutrition, medical support, enrichment, and animal companionship, when applicable. Their team also focuses on educational efforts that seek to inform the general public about the animals in their care, both in the wild and in captivity.
While we are no strangers to solidifying dogs, cats, horses, and even rabbits and rodents, this was our first request to solidify the remains of wolves or wolfdogs. Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary provided us with the remains of 15 beloved rescues that now belong to their Big Pack in the Sky, and our team was excited and honored that they trusted us with the task of transforming their ashes into solidified remains that can be held, scattered, or shared. We thought it was especially fitting that the day the remains made their way back to their forever home at Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, Santa Fe (where Parting Stone is located) saw one of our biggest snowfalls of the winter so far!
The kind folks at Wild Spirit have set up a memorial incorporating the solidified remains, which you can visit at their sanctuary in Candy Kitchen, NM.
You can learn more about each of the rescues we worked with below, and you can make a donation to Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary here.
