Vivian F. Chisholm, our Chief Executive Officer is the great, great granddaughter of Thornton Chisholm, founder of the famous "Chisholm Trail". She now continues the tradition of strength, like her ancestors, as she works towards preserving a true part of the "Old West" and our "American Heritage". Vivian has been educating the public since 1997 and has compiled observational research on the wolves since 1989.

Vivian became involved with wolves when in 1989 two newborn cubs were brought to her as their mother developed mastitis (an infection of the milk glands). Seven cubs of the litter of seventeen died due to the mastitis. Vivian and her daughter Wendy bottle fed the two cubs from the time they were two days old. They named the cubs Mytiea and Bridget, saving the cubs lives and embarking on a journey of a lifetime. CWFI has rescue 18 wolves 1 coyote and 2 deer. CWFI will not turn down a wolf in need of care.

There have been many unfounded myths about the wolf causing mankind to develop an unnecessary fear of wolves. Through CWFI's education program, Vivian has been able to introduce hundreds of people to the "Gray Wolf" in a kind and gentle way. Vivian trained Chiwauka, Mytiea, and Bridget to sit, heel, stay, and come by voice commands, thereby dispelling the myths and documents that wolves are untrainable. In fact, CWFI had Chiwauka trained to track and locate missing children. However, due to Chiwauka being a "wolf", she was unable to be certified.
