  • Descrição


    Our wolf-dog sanctuary is located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, where grey wolves once roamed free. We rescue wolf-dogs from euthanasia and provide them with a semi-natural environment where they can chase each other and run at full speed, climb atop their house to survey their territory, and nap under the shade trees. We need help to care for our resident animals and to keep their enclosures and the facilities maintained. Fundraising is needed for sanctuary operations, and experience with a nonprofit is helpful.

    All of our wolf-dogs were formerly someone's pets. Part of our mission is to educate the public about responsible care of wolf-dogs as pets, and to discourage having them as pets. We are not open to the public, but offer private tours by appointment, and we need people to lead these tours. This is a great way to increase our educational outreach.

    You will learn about wolf-dogs who are a misunderstood and wrongly feared animal, about their behaviors and why they do not make good pets. You will learn about running a nonprofit organization and fundraising. You will be able to explore the local area on your time off, which includes the Great Smoky Mountains. Please Note: We are located in a rural area and there is no public transportation nearby.

    We are a small nonprofit organization run 100% by volunteers. We need help with animal care, socialization/training, grounds and facilities maintenance, marketing, fundraising and general office work. Experience with large mammals/canids is preferred but not required. Wolf-dogs are naturally fearful of humans, and for this reason, we request stays of 3 months+ to give the animals time to get to know you and be comfortable around you. This will help us accomplish husbandry tasks such as brushing, nail trims, training & socialization.

    The daily schedule will vary, but the animals need to be given fresh water and food daily. Weekly enclosure cleanings and maintenance including mowing/weedeating in warmer months. Ongoing socialization and training. Some errands need to be run, and a drivers license is necessary. Correspondence with donors. Experience w/ fundraising and/or office work including marketing, social media & website updates would be helpful, as well as general administrative experience with Word, Excel, etc.

    Other responsibilities and will include cleaning the Visitors Center where Workawayer is housed (Must be a clean person!)

    We are not open to the public but we offer private tours. The Workawayer will be leading tours and engaging with visitors while providing them with education about wolf-dogs.

    Must be self-motivated and be able to work independently. Must be ok with living by yourself (The housing is located in the Visitors Center, and is not located in a private residence). Must be ok with handling raw meat and getting your hands dirty. Listening to ccasional howling of wolf-dogs is a bonus!
