For over 20 years, wolfdogs have called Eagle Tail Mountain Wolf Sanctuary home. Located in the desert just west of Phoenix, in Tonopah, Arizona, this non-profit organization dedicates itself to these canines, many of whom have been abandoned, rescued, or taken in to avoid facing euthanasia due to rabies concerns, since sadly many municipalities consider all wolfdogs, regardless of their DNA, to be wild animals and a potential threat to public health.
Eagle Tail Mountain Wolf Sanctuary is the life work of Kelly Reed, a retired firefighter who has devoted the last twenty years of his life to these wolfdogs. In 2018, just as Kelly was about to step back from the day to day activity of the sanctuary, Plan B Foundation reached out to him for help with the High Desert Wolf Rescue. Eagle Tail Mountain was the only chance these dogs had to escape euthanasia, and like the true hero he is, Kelly came to the rescue, taking in every one of the remaining 42 dogs with support from Plan B. That was nearly a year ago and now Kelly needs our help. The infrastructure of the 20-year old facility is deteriorated. The siding needs repairs and painting, fences need to be reinforced, automatic watering systems and generators are needed to ensure an unlimited supply of fresh water, the wolfdogs need veterinary care, and food alone is running approximately $ 12,000 a year. Add to that, the housing and out-buildings needed for volunteer and educational activities and part-time caretakers, and the bill could easily top $30,000.
We need your help today to repay Kelly for his heroic selflessness, to ensure these amazing animals have what they need physically, emotionally and psychologically to thrive, and to take the first steps toward a partnership with Kelly that will to create a lasting legacy for him, and a sanctuary and educational oasis we can all be proud of.
Help repay this hero’s selflessness and save the wolfdogs he calls family and the sanctuary he calls home by making your gift today.
