In Harmony With Nature: A Haven for Wolf-Dogs in Florida

Unwanted wolf hybrids are a growing concern in Florida.

Kim Kapes, director of In Harmony With Nature, says that her goal is to “find them a suitable home, however long that takes.” She has dedicated her days to caring for wolf-dogs, and while she has tremendous respect for them, she’ll be the first to tell you that they are not ideal pets.

“People really think it’s cool to have a wolf-dog,” she said. “I love them, I want to help them, they’re here. But you really need to know and understand what you’re getting into.”

Kapes has seen her pack grow considerably after authorities shut down a shelter in Port Lucie, leaving her with another 17 dogs to care for. In Harmony With Nature strives to find homes for each and every dog, but for those truly unwanted cases, Kapes says she’s prepared to offer them a lifetime of love and care.

“If an animal is not adoptable, then our goal is to give them the best care for the rest of their life,” she said.
