Volunteers

Volunteers are essential to any non-profit group or organization. These hard-working individuals dedicate their time and services, whether it be one hour or 10 hours a week, short-term or a lifetime. We honor them for all that they do for the wolves. Our volunteers spend time with the wolves, help with chores, and assist with other projects to maintain a safe and efficient operation of the sanctuary. Time and again, our volunteers have said they enjoy working here so much, that before they know it, time has slipped by and they never realized they were “working.”

Please consider volunteering at our sanctuary. No experience is required. Sharon, with the help of  skilled volunteers, will teach you all you need to know about the wolves, their habitats, their behaviors, and the sanctuary itself. This is a unique opportunity for a veterinarian student studying wildlife medicine, an environmentalist interested in preserving nature’s wonders, a group or student looking for community service, or anyone with the time and lots of love in their hearts to share.

To become a volunteer, please contact us at 207-637-3007 between the hours of 10:30am and 6:30pm.(leave message) Or, you may email the sanctuary at runswithwolvessanctuary@gmail.com. Facebook.

 

Sharon Gonzalez – VolunteerRuns with Wolves Sanctuary
In May 2014, I was given the opportunity to become a part of the sanctuary. Since working for 5 kennels and a veterinarian office, I have always wanted to get into doing rescues.

There is something about the grounds, something beyond words. The wolf is my guide, my totem, and this experience is one that fills my heart and soul. Every day I spend with them I am blessed to learn much about their behaviors and their love they give to me.

Monique Guimond – Intern/Volunteer
My journey at Runs with Wolves Sanctuary started out as an internship for school and I have continued to help by volunteering. I am a recent graduate of the University of New England and received a degree in Animal Behavior. I wanted to pursue an internship with wolves because I have always been drawn toward their beauty and intelligence and wanted an opportunity to work alongside the pack.

The wolves helped change my perspective about where I wanted to end up in life and my future career goals. Because of them, I realized that I wanted a chance for travel and adventure. This adventure I am on brings excitement to my life every day. It has shown me that I want to continue my career working with wolves and educating the public.

Pauline Cilley – VolunteerRuns with Wolves Sanctuary
I have been with the sanctuary since May 2008. Most of my volunteer time is working on the grounds making sure the sanctuary is kept in good order. The advantage of being a volunteer is the love of the wolves and what they give to me.

There is definitely a spiritual connection. I gain strength from working with the other volunteers and with the wolves. Here I am at peace. Here I can find my way through the chaos of life. The wolves give me comfort and guidance.

  4. I JASMINE OLSON I’D INDEED VOLUNTEER IF I DIDN’T LIVE SO FAR AWAY IN UT.
    FAOLAN has helped me with my personal life in his fiction series of 6 book wolves of the beyond, and equally love the real wolves like LOMASI and ANOKI.

    SHADOW I’D PLAY A TAD AT LEAST A FEW MINUTES. LOMASI TREATS AND TOUCH OF HAND SINCE I’VE SEEN YOUR GENTLENESS ALSO ON VIDEO MAYBE BY TREES AND ROCKS WE COULD PICNIC AT LUNCH TIME IF I EVER COME CLOSER PRETTY GIRL.

    DAKOTA RELAXING EATING OR PLAYING I’D LEAVE IT UP TO YOU.

    I LIKE THE JANE LINDSKOLD FIREKEEPER SAGA, AND THE LAND OF ELYON TOO. THE TITLES ARE TO EXPLAIN HOW TIGHTLY CONNECTED TO WOLVES A GIRL NAMED FIREKEEPER FEELS, OR HER ADVENTURES WITH BLIND SEER, THE WOLF ON THE BOOK COVERS OF EACH BOOK. FIREKEEPER SHE’S THE HEROINE HERSELF.

    STAY STEADY, LIVE UP TO YOUR POTENTIAL AND DESERVE YOUR DREAM, AND REMEMBER TO BE PRUDENT TOO, THIS IS WHAT FIREKEEPER’S MAIN FRIEND BLIND SEER HELPED ME DISCOVER WHILE READING THIS 6 BOOKS SERIES OF THEIRS.

    Heart and Spirit I’m connected to the loyal wolves both ways emotionally, fiction and science plus a few old polite religious wolf thoughts from PAGANS and NATIVE AMERICANS. I mean I don’t care what the old opinion is by surprise as long as it’s a friendly belief. I live and live in religions and if I knew all the positive old beliefs of your loyal packs my dear wolf friends you’re the animal I’d worship the most. CONSOLED INSPIRED SECURE AND EVEN STRENGTHENED, this is the miraculous result of my high comprehension of your communication. Wolves have always been the ones to feel like my emotional guidance since I was a kid I’ll turn 26 this year, this their true friend JASMINE OLSON speaking for herself while howling with this wolf pack.

    JANE LINDSKOLD’S OFFICIAL WEBSITE IS THE OTHER WEBSITE I’VE BEEN ABLE TO SAFELY SHARE MY WOLF OPINIONS ON, IN CASE A VOLUNTEER HERE WISHES TO EXPRESS SOME FEELINGS WITH AN AUTHOR WHO GIVES FREEDOM EVEN ON HER OFFICIAL SITE SHARING HER WEEK FACTS, HER OPINIONS, OR ASKING FANS A QUESTION. JANE LINDSKOLD’S A WOLF LOVER HERSELF DEAR BRENDA. LIKE YOU BRENDA I WANT THIS NICE REFLECTIVE SANCTUARY TO CONTINUE, GOOD LUCK.

  5. You’ve both touched wolfdogs, you’ve both formed a sanctuary, clearly you both want to protect the wolves, and you’ve both experienced real peace with a wolf pack day and night. To Brenda here at this sanctuary it may be a delight to chat with Darlene who started the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (computer or phone you both give friendly education to your visitors)
