Plot Synopsis

WOLVES AND WARRIORS is a one-hour reality series that follows U.S. Navy veteran Matt Simmons and Dr. Lorin Lindner, the husband and wife team behind Lockwood Animal Rescue Center (LARC), a private sanctuary that rescues wolves and wolf-dog hybrids whose lives are threatened by poachers, illegal breeders and other perils. The series documents high risk rescues and rehabilitation efforts undertaken by Matt and Lorin, who are joined by combat veterans working to overcome the traumas of war. LARC employs a team of veterans who help rescue and care for the wolves as a way of recovering from the anguish they've experienced. 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. he series also offers an intimate look at the behavior of wolves in the sanctuary, as they find their packs and court their mates. Alongside new members of Matt and Lorin's team, viewers will learn every wolf's name and discover that each has its own unique and quirky personality. In the series premiere, Matt and the team travel to rescue a grey wolf named Sadira from a backyard in Oregon, and later await the outcome of her life-or-death medical procedure. Viewers also meet the veterans that comprise the LARC team -- including new members -- many of whom hope working at LARC will help them manage their PTSD. Later in the first season, LARC assists in the evacuation of a California sanctuary when its threatened by wildfire, and combats wolf poaching in the forests of Montana in a program called "Operation Wolfguard."
