Howling Acres Wolf Sanctuary was founded in 1991 and is located on thirteen acres of Southern Oregon, near Williams, by Charlie and Sherri LaBats.
Sadly, Sherri fell ill with leukemia and those medical expenses, combined with the recession has made it nearly impossible to keep the sanctuary going.
So, after almost 20 years, the Howling Acres Wolf Sanctuary is closing its doors and looking for new homes for their 15 wolves and five wolf-hybrids.
Sherri and Charlie plan to keep the sanctuary open until homes have been found for all the wolves.
The Web site also states that the sanctuary can also be bought for $400,000 and includes everything needed to keep the sanctuary going.
