Windsong Heights School Launches Book

in support of sanctuary wolfdog Horton

In true “Windsong Wolfpack” spirit, students from Windsong Heights School came together in support of Horton, a neglected Irish Wolfhound that was rescued in 2015 and brought to the Yamnuska Wolf Dog Sanctuary. To help the sanctuary with Horton’s rehabilitation and progress, students recycled bottles and cans. Given the school’s mascot is Timber the Wolf, the school’s creed encourages students to think and act like wolves, learning to be true to themselves and demonstrate leadership while working collaboratively, like a wolf pack.

This initiative inspired two students to take on a passion project – they wrote a book about Horton’s life story called Horton Hears Our Howls, which follows the pattern of Dr. Seuss’s popular book Horton Hears Who. Students from various grades also contributed by providing illustrations and words of advice for Horton to become a more resilient wolfdog.

The book is now on schoolcash online and the Yamnuska Wolf Dog Sanctuary for $10. Proceeds will go towards supporting Horton’s continued care.
