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

A passionate and delightfully quirky, caring and engaging bunch here. Of course the highlight is meeting and greeting the wolves. It's an amazing, educational experience. You will learn and understand so much about this very misunderstood and beautiful animal. Make time and do the tour. We did the $25 dollar one, and it was fine.

Great experience to see the wolves. Added bonus was to go inside one of the pens and meet Halon (2 year old 80# wolf). He was friendly and just licked my whole head (hair). These animals are so much biggier and more powerful than dogs. The one hour visit was uplifting and good for the spirit!

I have traveled from the San Fernando Valley at least 6 times in 2014 to visit this wonderful sanctuary. Tonia, the originator and director does as much for her charges as she possibly can. Based on her small donation base she does wonders. On my second visit I was standing next to a large wooden structure placed in the middle... More
