Guidelines and Submissions
:bulletgreen: Love your fellow Anti-Wolfers.

If you are moving from a previous account to re-join, please link us to your previous account in your application.
:bulletgreen: We do not encourage/allow trolling here, nor will we participate in it.
:bulletblack: Do not post links to stupid comment chains, stupid people, or stupid deviations on or off deviantART in the comments section.

:bulletgreen: Don't submit a stamp to the gallery if a similar stamp has already been submitted, unless yours is of better quality.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why was my join request denied?
A: Either you didn't read the rules, or we found your behavior questionable.

Q: Why do you hate wolves?
A: We don't. We do, however, despise the rabid, childish fanbase and ignorant wolf advocates.

Q: Then why do you have a kill counter displaying wolf death tolls?
A: The kill counter is strictly for informational purposes, and is a tool which a handful of self-proclaimed "pro-wolf" websites and organizations also utilize. Our numbers come from the Department of Fish and Game (for each state, respectively).

Q: Why are you called "Anti-Wolf?"
A: The name is meant to be provocative in order to draw attention to our cause.

Q: What exactly is the point of this group?
A: Our mission is to be a powerhouse of knowledge regarding wolves, informing the public about their true conservation status, proving the dangers of wolves to humans, debunking the lies perpetuated by radical animal rights groups, idiots on the Internet, and wolf advocacy organizations, and promoting the welfare of lesser-known species that truly need our help and attention.

Q: Can I join your group?
A: Absolutely. As long as you're not a wolfaboo and provide reason for wanting to join.

Q: What is a wolfaboo?
A: A person who recklessly advocates for the lives of wolves at the cost of human life and livelihoods, and the ecosystem at large, often harassing and employing threats of violence or death against anyone they perceive as "anti-wolf" (e.g., hunters, wildlife conservationists, taxidermists, furriers), as well as deliberately perpetuating false information about wolves in order to further their radically "pro-wolf" agenda. Not to be confused with wolf fans, who merely harbor a modest interest for the animal or enjoy drawing them.

Q: Your group location says North America; can I still join if I'm not from there?
A: Of course! Anti-Wolf is a global group. North America was selected because we focus moreso on wolves in the United States. We still provide information on wolves all across the world, however.

Q: Why did you hide my comment?
A: If your comment was hidden, chances are you broke the linking rule, or your comment was deemed nonconstructive/unnecessary. Such comments include those meant to negatively provoke group staff and members.

Q: How can I submit art to your group without upsetting my friends and watchers?
A: Submit your work directly to the group, and your watchers will not be notified.

I have a question for you guys. I'm going to be setting aside a portion of my shop sales toward animal charities, and I'd like to support one that includes wolves, but I know there's a lot of sketchiness with some organizations. I've heard Defenders of Wildlife has some issues, and originally I was considering supporting a wolf sanctuary I visited as a kid, but they've proven to be an irresponsible organization. Do you have any suggestions for charities that aren't necessarily wolf-exclusive, but maybe include wolves/coyotes/foxes/other candids, that are really doing some good for the animals?

The reason I'm asking this group is because I don't want to make a decision on supporting a charity based purely off of how cool looking an animal is, or whether they say a lot of stuff that sounds great (that may not be scientifically sound), and while I know there are some really good wolf organizations out there, there's a lot of bad ones, too, and I don't fully trust the 'wolf fandom' to really research organizations beyond 'do they support wolves or not?'

Does liking wolves make me a wolfaboo? This group seems to be aimed at grey wolves.

Maned wolves are my favorite animal. I'm sorry.
