Adopt a Wolf to Save Pups and Wolf Mothers

Adopt a Wolf to Save Pups and Wolf Mothers

By SOP newswire2

This week, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin`s Board of Game wants to target more wolf mothers and pups for slaughter.

But with one caring act, you can give a gift that will help stop this horrible killing and support on-the-ground work to save the lives of wolves in Alaska and across America:

Adopt a wolf today from our brand-new Wildlife Adoption Center and help support wolf-saving work in Alaska and Greater Yellowstone.

Alaska`s brutal aerial hunting program has already claimed the lives of more than 800 wolves -- with another season of slaughter about to begin. In June, Palin`s state officials drew widespread condemnation for slaughtering 14 wolf pups --each just weeks old -- with a shot to the head.

Ignoring the public outcry from the killings, members of the state`s Board of Game -- many hand-picked by Palin -- have decided to continue the killing of wolf pups and mothers by state officials.

It`s all part of the state`s brutal wolf-killing program, and we need your help this Holiday Season to stop it.

A wolf adoption makes a special holiday gift and will support our efforts to fight this brutal policy -- and prevent programs like it from spreading to places like the Greater Yellowstone region and Northern Rockies. 

Each tax-deductible wolf adoption from our newly redesigned Wildlife Adoption Center comes with a plush wolf toy, a personalized Certificate of Adoption, a handsome 5 ? x 7 ? color wolf photograph and a fact sheet full of fascinating information about wolves.

This winter will be deadly for Alaska`s wolves. But your gift adoption for a loved one -- or yourself -- can make a world of difference for these wolves and other wildlife. Please make a caring wolf adoption today.
