The countdown has begun! It won't be long until all the U.S. Wolf Refuge staff, volunteers and ambassador animals will be packing it up and heading to the beautiful Stanford University Campus in Palo Alto California for the 44th ANNUAL STANFORD POWWOW. This will be the 8th year that we have returned to this event.
We're very excited to introduce some of our new fundraising products this year in our fundraising "Gift Shop". We'll have ladies summer tank tops (anticipating a warm Mother's Day Weekend) as well as brand new U.S. Wolf Refuge Tote Bags with a new embroidery design that is really pretty. You can find these tote bags in our on-line Gift Shop very soon as well. The proceeds from purchasing our products helps us build up the U.S. Wolf Refuge emergency medical fund, "Temerity's 4-Footed Angels."
As usual the powwow begins Friday evening May 8th, is open all day Saturday and closing ceremonies are usually about 5:00 p.m. Sunday May 10th. Pay us a visit and meet our ambassador KASA and special ambassador TAKODA (up close and personal) and who knows who else might show up!!!! If you live in the San Franciso Bay Area or driving distance please stop by our booth to say "HI". If you'd like to volunteer this weekend (in the Gift Shop or the Information Booth) please email Bill@USWolfRefuge.org.
We all love to talk about and write about our wonderful and beautiful Ambassador Wolf-Dog KASA. Her name Kasa means "dressed in furs" in the Native American Hopi language. I think she could not have ever received a more fitting name.
Kasa has been very busy lately. She has accompanied Bill Chamberlain on a few of his speaking engagements in Arizona as well as at Yellowstone National Park. This Alpha female always gets a lot of attention wherever she goes.
You can read Kasa's story on her page on our website under "The Wolves" but I can personally attest to the fact that the day she came to our refuge was life changing for all of us ... wolf and human alike.
Kasa is as powerful as she is lovely - both in physical and spiritual strength. For a period of time she and our former Ambassador ARIES (who has crossed that rainbow bridge) were an inseparable pair. She mourned his loss as well as we did.
If you plan on attending this year's Stanford Powwow you will have the opportunity of meeting Kasa up close and personal!
