Wolves are essential. So are dads.
Show your love and appreciation for the father in your life by sponsoring one of the Wolf Conservation Center's critically endangered red wolf and Mexican gray wolf dads!
Meet the Dads
- Jack (M1606) - Jack may be the oldest father at the WCC, but he's also one of the sweetest! His days are often spent playing and relaxing with his mate Charlotte and adult son Ben - his three other children have "flown the pack".
- Sam (M1784) - Red wolf Sam is an experienced father who's mastered the art of keeping his family united during challenging times. Sam's mate Veronica passed away unexpectedly this year, and Sam has been a constant source of support and love for his eight children.
- Diego (M1059) - Diego has one child, Trumpet, but the Mexican gray wolf is most proud of his newest title - grandfather! A huge fan of pups, Diego is incredibly honored to have five grandpups, including a wild pup! Learn more.
- Lighthawk (M1564) - This handsome Mexican gray wolf is the youngest father at the WCC but he's also one of the most experienced; Lighthawk and his mate, Trumpet, welcomed three pups in 2018 and five pups in 2019. And boy, can little pups be exhausting! Luckily, Lighthawk is patient, caring, and devoted to his family. Enjoy a brief glimpse into his daily life.
- Rhett (M1133) - Mexican gray wolf Rhett is proof that with age comes wisdom. He has helped raise six kids and is skillfully teaching them how to be great wild wolves: stay out of sight, be cautious, and always be wild.
- Alléno (M1198) - Not every wolf expects to father a child (or children) one day. Alléno was introduced to Mexican gray wolf Rosa in 2017 and while we were hoping the pair would get along, we didn't expect them to get along that well! The pair welcomed nine pups in 2018 and the mom/dad team often run themselves ragged in order to keep up with their rambunctious kiddos. His daily life calmed down last year when his six sons moved to another facility, but his three daughters are still quite a handful. Never a dull moment!
