Presented by Wolf Connection in partnership with Military Veteran Affairs

We welcome you to join an 8-session Resiliency Program tailored to Women Veterans. There is no cost for the program.

“The hardest part of coming back home was to be rejected by people because of the way I look. I gave everything for them and their families, and I never thought this would happen. Being unconditionally accepted and loved by Willow [wolf] has literally changed my life. I feel a huge weight releasing off my chest, as if one of my lungs was missing too and now I have it back.” — From an explosive-disposal unit service member

“As crazy and chaotic as the deployment was, I find civilian life a lot crazier. There is no ROE (rules of engagement) here. I am anxious all the time, more than I was in Afghanistan. But after a day here with the wolves, I feel like I have a pack again. I feel they understand me.” — From a veteran battling depression and homelessness

Our 8 on-site sessions will be held once a week during summer/fall 2021 at our Wolf Heart Ranch in Acton, CA from 9:00am–2:00pm.

Outdoor environment: Wolf Heart Ranch is a 165-acre facility located adjacent to the Angeles. National Forest. The property is private and there is ample space for social distancing and healthy air flow.

Small participant numbers: Programs are capped at 10 participants to maintain social distancing yet allow participants to communicate and participate in the same vicinity as a “pack.”

Facial coverings are required when individuals are within 6 feet of one another. For example, if a staff member is handling a wolf on leash and participants are bonding with that wolf, face coverings are required for all human parties.
