To my surprise and great honor, I was chosen to be the La Plata County Humane Society's Animal Advocate of the Year. It is such a humbling and wonderful feeling to receive recognition for the doing the work I love.
I am forever grateful for the people who surround me and support me in my vision of what animal advocacy looks like in the real world. The hard work and dedication they exhibit every day is inspiring. It keeps me on track and motivated to keep WolfWood moving forward.
I want to thank La Plata County Humane Society for the privilege of working with them all these years. Their support and our mutual collaboration has been invaluable in helping the animals of La Plata County.
I want to also especially thank Darla Lange, not only for nominating me and orchestrating my special night, but also for her tireless efforts and behalf of myself and the animals.
For the last 25 years, it has been my joy to rescue, care for, learn from and love without end, the many wolves and other canines that have called Wolfwood home. Our mission statement states we believe "that quality of life is an inherent right of all creatures." On behalf of myself and all the animals at WolfWood, thank you for helping us have the chance to live a quality life.
Director, Wolfwood Refuge
