The National Rally to Protect America’s Wolves!

 Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Selfsame Hands

I was made with the selfsame hands
From fur to paws to eyes
My speed and beauty and family ways
A gaze that can mesmerize

The same divine tools that craft a child
Brought me into being
To keep the wilderness pristine
Healthy and serene

So why is my body broken
Tortured and defiled
I ask the man standing over me
What could possibly make him smile

For thousands of years we have been a team
Haven’t I helped you stand
And don’t you see that just like you
I was made with those selfsame hands

Our Mission

The mission of this rally is to unite wolf and wildlife defenders from around the country and demonstrate to our nation’s leaders that a respectful and humane majority of American citizens are demanding federal protection for America’s wolves, under the Endangered Species Act, in every state throughout their historic range.
