Veteran With PTSD Wanted To Give Up, Then A Wolf Walked Up And Gave Him A Hug

It’s saddening to see a large number of veterans dealing with excruciating PTSD post returning from service. With dwindling self-worth and nagging combat stress, they often develop self-sabotaging tendencies that cannot be healed with traditional therapy.

Many such struggling veterans have now found solace at California’s “Lockwood Animal Rescue Center”, amidst the company of rescued wolves!

Founded in 2011, this sanctuary rescues wolves and wolf-dog hybrids from different cruel situations involving abuse, exploitation through illegal breeding, or other low-welfare setups.

These rescues in turn become a healing resource for traumatized veterans who have failed by medications and counseling.

Each wolf at the vast 20-acre sanctuary has voluntarily picked a troubled veteran to work as their primary caretaker.

As every battered wolf and their veteran dedicate themselves to each other, they find mutual healing and acceptance in their sacred empathetic company – until they end up rehabilitating each other! This is pure magic!

The video below beautifully correlates the checkered pasts of these brave warrior wolves and veterans, who have salvaged their lives thanks to this unorthodox form of therapy. Wolves are highly intuitive beings and their capacity to embrace hurting humans is unbelievable!

 

The sanctuary management has decided to keep their center closed for public visits, just to maintain the sanctity of this powerful therapeutic program. We wish them good luck!
