So You Want To Rescue Animals?

Brittany McDonald

Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary Executive Director

About Brittany McDonald

Brittany first fell in love with wolves when she was just 8 years old and has been actively pursuing her dream of working with them ever since! Though she is Minnesota born and raised, her passion for wildlife has led her all over the United States where she has gained experience caring for wolves, big cats, primates, reptiles, and so many more. As a long-time supporter of Wild Spirit, Brittany has always admired the sanctuary’s dedication to making our rescues’ health and happiness our number one priority, and with her knowledge of concepts like animal health and behavior, enrichment, and operant conditioning, she’s excited for the opportunity to further contribute to that philosophy!
