FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - An anonymous benefactor has stepped in with a key donation for a northern Colorado sanctuary for displaced, abused and neglected captive wolves and wolf dogs.

The Coloradoan (https://tinyurl.com/zulannw ) reported Tuesday that the W.O.L.F. Sanctuary located west of Fort Collins had been raising money for a $152,500 down payment for a new home in northwestern Larimer County. The sanctuary was $85,000 short and closing in on a Thursday deadline set by the owner when it got an anonymous donation.

The sanctuary currently houses 29 wolves and wolf dogs, with a capacity for 30. Animals that are taken in become lifelong residents. Executive Director Shelley Coldiron hopes the shelter can gradually expand to up to 60 animals in the new location.
