Husky Romi is a non-profit organization providing a safe haven for abandoned and abused huskies and wolves in South Africa. They provide a home to huskies and wolves that can't be kept as pets, because of their complicated nature. Many of the animals arrive in poor condition, some not even knowing what grass is, and are rehabilitated with loving care by Larry Paul and his team of helpers and volunteers. This group was started to provide support to the Husky Romi project and to promote the protection of wolves and other wildlife. The sanctuary is open for the public to come and learn about wolves, entry is free, but they appreciate donations for the buying of food and for veterinary bills. All the huskies are spayed and neutered when they arrive at Husky Romi. They currently provide a home for twenty Huskies and one hundred and four Timber wolves.
Husky Romi encourages people to come to the sanctuary in Reitz, South Africa for a visit. The wolves range in age from puppies to eighteen years old. Under the watchful eye of Larry, visitors can view the camps to meet and pet the ancestor to all breeds of dogs. The Huskies on the farm love visitors and start “calling” at the moment of arrival at wolf camp. Husky Romi also offers camping facilities giving visitors the opportunity to lie back and listen to the howling that continues throughout the night.
The sanctuary has a sponsor program giving individuals the opportunity to “adopt” a wolf or husky rescue. The sanctuary will send photos and updates of the rescued animal in exchange for sponsor donations.
SPCA International is so happy to award Husky Romi with a Shelter of The Week Grant to help with the care and medical expenses of these wonderful creatures. The dollars will go toward spaying of the females and shade shelters to help keep the animals out of the hot sun.
