In the eyes of Matt Simmons and Lorin Lindner, wolves are a misunderstood, majestic animal. They also are mysterious, intelligent, protective and loyal, but because poachers, illegal breeders and other perils threaten their lives, Matt and Lorin come to the rescue. The husband and wife team -- he a U.S. Navy veteran, she a clinical psychologist and public health educator -- run the Lockwood Animal Rescue Center in California. The series spotlights the center's mission: to offer a therapeutic work environment for returning combat veterans and a forever home to wolves, wolfdogs, coyotes, horses, parrots and other animals. For Matt, Lorin and the team, every mission is critical -- from perilous wolf rescues, to investigations into underground fur farms -- and they all provide opportunities for combat veterans to heal and find their place in civilian society.
