Elizabeth Township (Lancaster County) -— A Lancaster County wildlife sanctuary is reaching out to those affected by last week’s snow storm for help.
The Wolf Sanctuary of Pennsylvania in Elizabeth Township is home to 45 rescued wolves and one of a handful of sanctuaries in the country that helps protect these animals that were left either abandoned or hurt in the wild.
On a weekly basis, it’s estimated it takes between 400-500 pounds of meat to feed these wolves.
Dale Kofroth a sanctuary volunteer said, “It’s huge financially for us.”
As a non-profit agency, it’s costly to feed and protect these animals.
“Our tours and donations are how we survive financially,” said Darren Tompkins, who works at the sanctuary.
So the sanctuary is asking for help from people who lost power. Tompkins said, “People survive storms – repairmen go to work – and wolves get meat. “
The Wolf Sanctuary of Pennsylvania is looking for unspoiled or unwanted meat that was lost in last week’s storm to help feed these hungry mouths.
“As long as it’s not spoiled – we will take it,” said Tompkins.
Meat donations can either be dropped off at the sanctuary or picked up depending on your location.
“When people lose power – rather than throwing it away – it’s going to a good cause.”
