Emily Kuhn

Growing up alongside German Shepherd Dogs, a husky, and a Malamute, it's no surprise that Emily found herself drawn to the Texas Wolfdog Project. While brainstorming potential fieldsites for an Anthropology capstone project on domestication, she remembered hearing about a wolfdog shelter somewhere near Houston. After an initial interview came two months of volunteering-as-research; once the capstone was complete, she found she had fallen in love with the breed, the dogs, and the chance to make a difference. A year of consistent volunteering later, and she accepted the opportunity to become a member of the Board of Directors as the Intake Coordinator. As Intake Coordinator, Emily is responsible for assessing potential new additions to the shelter for their fitness as future family pets. On any given Saturday, you're likely to find her walking the dogs, guiding tours, and assisting with volunteer lunch.
