Nayeli is one of many wolf hybrids living at the non-profit Wolf Run Wildlife Sanctuary in Nicholasville. Just over a year old, Nayeli is going to school at Sit Means Sit in Lexington to become a certified therapy dog. Once certified, Nayeli can work on television or movie sets and visit patients in a hospital.
Nayeli's handlers say she'll be in school for six months of private training and group lessons, but for a non-profit animal sanctuary like Wolf Run, Nayeli's training is expensive. "They've given us a discount but still for a non-profit sanctuary it's a little expensive," Baird said. So we have a GoFundMe set up!"
Nayeli's training costs $995.
Any additional money donated will go right back to the sanctuary for food, vet bills, mowing costs and many other necessities at the sanctuary.
