A nonprofit facility for wolf and wolf-hybrid dogs, which was displaced for the second phase of widening Highway 46 East, officially reopens on the east side of Paso Robles this week.
When The Tribune spoke to Kristi Krutsinger in March 2009, the co-founder of Wolf Hybrid Adoption and Rescue was planning the group’s move from its longtime ranch. Today, that ranch is gone, and the land is a staging area for Caltrans’ equipment during the widening project.
WHAR is operating off Airport Road on the grounds of Zoo to You, a nonprofit group that runs educational wildlife programs at 2445 Adobe Road.
In April 2010, Krutsinger was settling into the new space and still in the process of building the new facility there. A re-opening celebration is planned for 10 a.m. Saturday. The day will feature a fundraiser for the wolf facility with a silent auction and beer and wine for sale along with dessert.
There will also be animal demonstrations. Those with questions can visit http://www.whar.org or call Krutsinger at 610-6109.
