Little Joe Needs Your Help!

Little Joe has always been a sprightly member of the Speedwell Family. He may be small in stature, but he has a big personality and a ton of spirit and pep. This June he began to have mobility issues and pain from a compressed spinal column and despite medication treatment, he took a turn for the worse on Friday June 25 when he was rushed to emergency. Now he requires emergency spinal surgery to give him a fighting chance at life. Please send lots of positive hope, prayers, and support for Little Joe!

Please Help the Wolves of Speedwell

Since 1980 Wolf Sanctuary of PA has been caring for displaced wolves and wolf-dogs in need of a home. Over the years we have been very grateful for those who visited for our tours and in so doing helped us to continue to care for all of our rescues who have a home here. With the onset of the COVID19 pandemic, we can no longer rely on tours to be able to provide the best care for the wolves. Temporarily cancelling public tours was not a decision that we made lightly, and it will be a considerable financial loss for the sanctuary. Given the ever-changing state of the covid19 situation, we are also unable to predict how long tours will ultimately need to be postponed. With over 50 wolves and wolf-dogs, we need your help to ensure that we can continue to provide for their care. We ask that if you have anything to spare during this difficult time, that you might consider helping the wolves. Thank you as always for your gracious support.

WE NEED YOUR DONATION. Without private sanctuaries to offer security for animals formerly owned as pets, as unwilling actors or testing specimens, they remain trapped for life. While we work, through our advocacy, for the day that ownership is a thing of the past, please invest in Wolf Sanctuary of PA, and ensure the safety and care for those who need you now.

Little Joe Needs Your Help!

Little Joe has always been a sprightly member of the Speedwell Family. He may be small in stature, but he has a big personality and a ton of spirit and pep. Recently, though, we noticed that he had started to lose that characteristic spring in his step. He walked a little more carefully and slowly and he didn’t seem his usual bright and energetic self. 

We monitored his symptoms and during a recent veterinary visit this June, he was determined to have a curvature in his spine that was impacting his mobility and likely causing him pain. We started him on medication and scheduled an MRI for the following week for further investigation. 

However, on Friday morning June 25, just a few days after his veterinary visit, he appeared to be struggling with his back legs and was immediately rushed to emergency. He was confirmed to have a compressed spinal column and there are several prognoses: he may have an aberrant bone growth which can be removed and though it may grow back, it will provide him with a relatively normal lifespan; or he could also potentially have a tumor in which case they will remove it and take a biopsy to determine if it is cancerous. He is scheduled for surgery this Monday June 28. A radiologist will be viewing his MRI images on Sunday to provide the surgeon with some additional insight before the surgery. 

Little Joe’s veterinary bills have already begun to build and surgery and recovery will not be cheap. 

He is home and is currently in a comfortable quarantine area where we can care for him and keep a close eye on him while he awaits surgery. We have ensured that it is a quiet space where he can feel as comfortable as possible. 

We ask for any help that you might be willing to give to aid in the costs of his veterinary care, surgery, and recovery. We want to give Little Joe a fighting chance. He is only 5 and we hope that he still has lots of life to live with his beloved companion Nova. 

All we have right now is hope and the nature of the unknown.  But that is all about what we do isn’t it?  We give them all that we can with the faithful help and commitment of our donors, volunteers, and staff.  Please send lots of positive hope, prayers, and support for Little Joe!
