The one on one time with the wolves was one of the most incredible things I have ever experienced. I learned so much from Tonya and the staff. Anyone can see that the wolves are well cared for and loved. This is a place that should be experienced by all. I can't wait to go back and get more wolf... More

It's very obvious to an animal lover that this sanctuary is ALL about the wolves! Saving them, loving them, and caring for them. These people have given their entire lives for the care of the these wonderful animals. I am so grateful to have been able to meet them all and interact with the spirits they carry.

These beautiful beings are so awe inspiring to be around, such an amazing experience if you love dogs and/or wolves. I would say everyone should do this at least once! Bring cash or check, no credit cards are accepted. Also we brought all natural organic bison treats, but they need all kinds of food especially red meat, lots of wolves... More

I had the best time going here. Not only was the staff down to earth and funny, but the wolves were incredible! This whole experience was very informative so this could definitely be a field trip for older children. Also, the whole experience was very calming and peaceful. We did the three hour tour and we will definitely be doing... More

These wolves are obviously loved. They love their care takers and want to be pet. One female even jumps up and licks us (especially my husband). The tour guide was very informative and gave us the background of each wolf. These wolves have all been rescued from horrible circumstances. It's always hard to any wild animal behind bars but hearing... More

I came with a friend and wasn't sure what to expect. Paid for the private tour with Tanya which was so worth it. Special place with amazing wolves! Saw a woman try and push herself into a wolf who was a great judge of character and expressed his displeasure politely but firmly. Loved that he came over to me and... More

Absolutely awesome place to visit! The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. They take the time to educate visitors on the plight of these beautiful creatures. They share the general history of wolves and the history of each of the wolves there. They are totally devoted to the care and education and preservation of these animals. There is absolutely nothing... More

I visited this wonderful Wolf Sanctuary in May of 2007 and spent all or part of 4 days there. I was welcomed warmly and had a great time seeing and petting the wolves. All the staff was friendly, helpful and respectful. Tonya is the Best. I drove from Maine to CA just to see the wolves and it was worth... More
