Founded in 1866, the ASPCA was the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. Our mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” The ASPCA works to rescue animals from abuse, pass humane laws and share resources with shelters nationwide.

First and foremost, Wolf Connection is a youth education and empowerment program, with rescued wolves and wolfdogs as the centerpiece. With the help of the animals, young men and women reconnect with nature, learn to be of service by responsibly caring for another being, and work towards becoming the kind of person they want to be. The animals help them focus on their impulses, feelings and emotions in a constructive way; they learn to forgive and give others (and themselves) a second chance. They also reflect on, and learn about, loyalty, honesty, integrity, courage, contribution to society, commitment, sense of purpose, and self confidence.
