Lori Wynn

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Lori has a strong background in accounting, the construction industry, and is a land use consultant writing conditional use permits, and rezoning.

In 2002, Lori acquired her first wolfdog, an upper content spirited black phase male wolf dog named Lobo. Lobo was her first of many teachers for her in order to learn the way of the wolf. As Lobo turned three years old, she realized that he needed a companion. Therefore she reached out to her breeder in order to acquired Sage. Sage went on to become one of the most accomplished female Ambassadors in the world. Together they began doing off-site presentations for a sanctuary in Southern California. Educating and advocating that there’s no such thing as a big bad wolf. Being involved with a few sanctuaries Lori had the passion in her heart to form Guardians of the Wolves. Together with her and the great Ambassador Sage they hit the road in order to spread their wisdom. They spoke at wolf management meetings in California held by the California Dept of Fish and Wildlife, in order to ensure that the first pack that entered California in 2011, known as the Shasta pack, was protected. Lori has completed 100’s of educational presentations on wolf conservation, wolfdog history and educating the public on responsible ownership. Lori has facilitated hundreds of rescues, always putting the needs of the animals first. Lori also has a deep passion for wolf therapy. Witnessing firsthand how these animals can save lives from trauma. One of the most soulful projects Lori was part of was being in council with the 13 indigenous Grandmothers along with her wolfdog Willow, on an Indian reservation in Lame Deer, Montana, to heal the blood-stained land at the massacre site near Little Big Horn.

Guardians of the Wolves is a heart project for Lori and to continue the great legacy of Ambassador Sage with Ambassador Rosemary, a high content wolfdog born April 30th, 2021, four months after the passing of Sage. Sage passed at nearly 15 years of age and together Lori and Sage made an impact on 100’s of thousands of lives.

Together they have laid down their wolf tracks, making a positive impact in the world.
