fostering programs

Become the foster parent for one of our wolves or dogs! 

You can foster a wolf or dog for a year or longer! Help our animals and our project by fostering or giving it as a gift to your beloved ones.

Every foster parent receives a fostering certificate!

Optimal keeping of our animal partners is costly ... 

Optimal wolf or dog keeping needs:

  • big, well maintained enclosures with retreat areas 
  • occupation by the human caregivers: regular enrichment, "brain jogging" and the incentives for physical movement 
  • optimal veterinary care 
  • diverse and appropriate food  

Together this all costs approximately € 15.000,- per animal per year. 

We are happy to answer all questions you still may have about our fostering programs. Please send an email to
