I've traveled the globe and seen more amazing things than I can remember but none were as impactful on my life as a visit to Mission Wolf. I was with a group of my close guy friends including one who used to work here when he was much younger. We were out for a week of hiking and stayed onsite... More

Located in a remote corner of Colorado's Wet Mountains, Mission Wolf is dedicated to providing a safe home for wolves who never should have left the wild, and now must be protected from themselves. If you visit the website, they will give directions to Mission Wolf from the north (i.e., Westcliffe). If you're adventurous and have a higher-clearance car, give... More

We visited mission Wolf this past weekend with my children , ages 4 and 7. We went on a feeding day but I was aware of this so kept them clear of the "food prep" area. They were preparing a horse for feeding and I didn't want my children to see that although they were interested. We arrived at 11... More

The wolves were beautiful, the guide was informative. It's a heck of a drive to get there, be prepared with a vehicle that won't mind the gravel, ruts, rocks, narrow passes and tight turns. The views are gorgeous if you take the directions from Bishop's Castle. The downside... if you are going on a "big feed" day, be prepared to... More

If you... More

The wolves and their volunteer caretakers are both amazing. Our group was grandparents (50's), parents (30's) and grand kids age 14-12-8 and all visited with the wolves and helped with a big Saturday feed. If you fear it, learn about it. It will change your world and hopefully more. This is a non-profit so be generous. Visit the website to... More

We planned our trip to Colorado around visiting Kent and the wolves. We made the right choice and our lives will never be the same. We've seen Maggie, Abe, and Zeb in CT when they've come to visit during Kent's educational tour with the ambassador pack (thanks to our friends at Wolf Central). To see all the wolves, in their...

This place is truly in the middle of nowhere, but that is part of what made it special. I had no idea there was so much open land back there. Anyway, a very energetic, happy, and knowledgable young woman gave us a great tour. We learned a lot about wolves. We pitched a tent on their grounds and got to... More

find out about the wolves in their semi "natural" setting. call ahead of time to find out the feeding times, makes it more interesting. Don' t forget to leave a few $$ to help feed the wolves!

This is a very special place. I felt a real connection with the wolves. Such beautiul animals. The sound of them howling was almost a spiritual experience. Worth the rough road drive to get there... really.
