Learn more about the animals at Wolf Hollow and share your favorite local wildlife story. What is Wolf Hollow? It is a wildlife rehabilitation Center on San Juan Island. There are no wolves on San Juan Island, and no bears, either. Many of the creatures at Wolf Hollow are birds of prey. Volunteers often have the pleasure of releasing them back into the wild. Wolf Hollow was named by a resident veterinarian who started the shelter and just liked the sound of the name. Volunteers have enthusiastically taken over the program. At this Critter’s Christmas event you can meet the people that make the Rehab center run smoothly and hear their stories.
The Christmas gathering will include treats and will encourage well-wishers to adopt or the fill the wish list for the wild animals that are currently at Wolf Hollow. Get your present shopping done early, 2016 Wolf Hollow Calendars and Animal Adoption Packets will be available. To purchase for yourself or others, as well as handmade tree ornaments.
You may want to bring an item from Wolf Hollow’s special Critters Christmas Wish List as a holiday gift for our local wildlife. The wish list can be found on www.sanjuanislander.com and includes things like nuts in or out of their shells, garbage bags, all kinds of berries, and sponges and other surprising things which you may have set aside for the next garage sale. Both cat and kitten foods are welcomed for animals like raccoons and songbirds. Part of the fun will be hearing stories about local wildlife.
