A Happy-Holiday Auction!

Hello all you wolf and dog lovers! It's that time of the season, and giving a gift that keeps on giving is one of the true treasures in life - and we would like too offer this opportunity to you in return for your continued support for our rescues.

Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue has been fortunate once again ... three beautiful timeshares have been donated [again by our very generous and wolf-loving friends Craig and Cindy of Incline Village, NV) to help raise funds for the unfortunate dogs that need your help! Last year the time-share prizes were a fabulous success and the winners have been enjoying Hawaii with family and friends. It's a win-win enterprise!

If you know anyone that is interested in bidding on any of these timeshares - or two or all three! - please share this information with them. Since we are an all-volunteer group, funds will go 100% to the rescues!
ONE - the Tahoe Seasons Resort at South Lake Tahoe!   We have friends who stayed there this summer (they own one of these timeshares) and they love it ... said it's a wonderful resort and vacation there frequently. Since I live here at Lake Tahoe I can vouch for the beauty and fun you will find here.  :)   All three resorts can also be traded with RCI while you travel the world and stay at other locations.
Tahoe Seasons Resort | Tahoe's Best Kept Secret  this is the link for the details and photos of this resort at South Lake Tahoe, Nevada.  The timeshare can even be used during Tahoe prime time - May through August - incorporating the last weeks of ski season and the best time of the year to be on the lake! With enough notice a person can rent additional rooms for a reduced rate as an owner. The resort is located at the base of Heavenly Ski Resort, and just up the hill from beautiful Lake Tahoe's beaches, restaurants and shopping.
The bidding for TSR starts at $200 and will end January 29, 2016, or buy it now for $500!

TWO - Beautiful Carlsbad Inn and Resort on the Beach.  Deluxe Waterfront Vacation Rentals and Timeshares in Carlsbad, CA on the San Diego Coast  This place is so nice and right at their beautiful beach in Carlsbad. The units are fixed weeks, one in November and one in December. They are ideal for specific travel times or Prime-time tradeable into time-share exchanges, something that the owner has done for years. They are both 1-bedroom units and centrally located in Carlsbad CA
The bidding for Carlsbad Inn and Resort starts at $500 and will end January 29, 2016, or buy it now for $1000.00!

THREE - Makai Club in Kauai, Hawaii. Makai Club Resort - Makai Club Resort Resort Video Journey  [Owner has two of these and plans to keep one because they like it so much.]  Princeville is the most elegant part of Kauai and features the Princeville World-class golf course. Both are floating units so an owner can reserve a week in a 1-bedroom pretty much any time of the year or trade for other locations. These condos are in a quiet area of Princeville, away from traffic and crowds. The owners enjoy all the Kauai amenities and go every other year, usually around late November or early December, staying 2 weeks at a time.

The bidding for Makai Club in Kauai starts at $500 and will end January 29, 2016, or buy it now for $1000.00!

ANOTHER PLUS - is that the donor will provide $300 in assistance to closing costs.

These are great prices for wonderful vacation opportunities! Please contact me if you are interested and I can give you more detailed information on HOAs, taxes, and special offers. Please pass this on to your friends and family. All proceeds will go to help our rescues and help save more lives while you enjoy a wonderful vacation at one - or all - of these beautiful resorts!

Help us meet our goals so we can get more dogs medical attention, spayed and neutered, or transported to their new homes.

Warmest regards for a blessed holiday season, and thank you for always being there to help ...

Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue is active legislatively this session and testifies in support of animal rights bills. We work with lobbiests for the animals, and hope you will sign petitions that will help their cause. 

 Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue

It is the mission and goal of Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue to save Wolves, Wolfdogs - and dogs that resemble wolves - from abuse, abandonment, neglect and euthanasia; to rehabilitate them both physically and emotionally using a holistic approach; and to find qualified foster homes for them until adoption or until a suitable sanctuary is found. LTWR endeavors to educate the public about the right and wrong reasons to own a Wolfdog, and to eventually put an end to the irresponsible breeding and buying of Wolves and Wolfdogs. Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue is a not-for-profit all-volunteer organization. 

Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue is not a sanctuary and we do not "take in" dogs on our property. We endeavor to help find qualified Foster Homes until the dog can be placed in a permanent and qualified situation.

We have a very successful adoption rate and although it takes a little longer because we are ever so picky, over 95% of the dogs posted on our website find good homes. We do not discriminate by helping only easy-to-place dogs. In fact, most of the dogs posted require a great deal of time and energy to find appropriate adopters who can care for them properly.

Our objective is to work cohesively with shelters, current owners, and qualified adopters. We network nationwide with many other Rescue groups, Sanctuaries, and not-for-profit organizations. We do interviews, reference checks and Home Visits for all applicants in order to find suitable homes for these special-needs animals.

We have found that it is usually the lack of education about the behavior of Wolfdogs that causes the owners of these animals to give up on their animals. All puppies are cute and cuddly and these babies are most endearing but knowing about the breed can prevent heartache and needless suffering for the animal. Most people with good intent try to raise Wolfdogs from pups only to later realize that they are not dealing with a typical dog. Many breeders do not properly qualify their buyers and don't care if the dog is later passed around or winds up at a shelter. Their aim is to make money, so often they will not inform buyers of the specific behaviors to be expected. Wolfdogs have special needs that most people don't understand or are not willing to take the time and effort to work with. For example, feeding an inadequate diet [of inexpensive commercial dry food usually bought in grocery stores] can often have disastrous results over long term, causing poor digestion, various diseases, or irritability that leads to unwanted behaviors. Leaving a Wolfdog in a back yard or tethered on a cable often results in the Wolfdog becoming aggressive, fearful, or unsociable.

Please enjoy our site, and while you navigate, keep in mind that we have stringent requirements for all of our potential adopters [see Adoption Requirements page]. We certainly do not want these animals which are already stressed to go to an environment where they will not get the daily care and attention they need. Visiting the Rescue Gallery and Rescue Stories will give you a good idea of why we are so passionate about getting these animals into the right homes where they will be well cared for - for the remainder of their lives. We always try to adopt our rescues into homes that will continue a holistic regime of a high-quality real-meat diet, behavior training, and lots of daily exercise. They all need escape-proof containment.

Animals available for adoption are posted on our Dogs for Adoption page. If you think you have the appropriate experience, environment and lifestyle to give one of these special animals a home, please contact the Person of Contact [POC] found at the bottom of each Bio. As part of the process the POC will carefully review your Adoption Application to ensure a good match. Someone will then call for a phone interview and set up a Home Visit to verify that you truly have what it takes to give a Wolfdog a happy and secure home. Qualified Foster Homes are also badly needed to give a rescue temporary sanctuary until an appropriate adopter can be found. To find out more about what we do, please visit our About Us page. Donations or purchases at one of our three on-line stores on our Shopping page are also greatly appreciated and help us to continue our rescue efforts to save even more animals. When you donate, 100% of your contribution goes toward the rescues for food, transportation, spay/neutering, supplies, medical treatment, etc.

Hope you enjoy our website. There is a lot of information for you to browse through - articles on feeding and safety tips; links; and of course photos and bios on our dogs for adoption. Enjoy your visit and please help out with a donation. If everyone pitches in, so many more wolfdogs will be pulled from shelters, and Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue will be able to continue to save lives. Thank you!

Sincerely yours,

Pamela Jo - Executive Director, Canine Behavior Consultant, Handler
