We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the wolf farm. The wolves were gorgeous and it was fun to see them roaming freely in their habitat. Some highlights included petting them, watching them howl, and hearing their jaws snap as they ate their beef. Such a cool experience!

It was great to see wolf dogs as they are as close as I will get to a wolf. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly and engaged the group. The tour should limit the amount of people per group especially during this pandemic and so that everyone can have a chance to interact and have a picture with the wolf dogs. My group was large and no one cared to move on and allow the others a chance to be around the wolf dogs. The videos posted on your site were encouraging as to having a great interaction with the wolf dogs but unfortunately that was not my experience. I will tell family and friends about this organization and encourage them to visit. The wolf dogs are beautiful.

Thank you for your positive comments...they are appreciated. We do our best to make sure tours are informative and educational, and that visitors have the opportunity to interact with the animals. You stated that that you did not have the opportunity to interact with the animals, or have your photo taken with them. As the owner of Howling Woods Farm, I am surprised to learn this. While we do not force our animals to interact or have their photos taken with visitors, I have never heard about a visitor who did have the opportunity to interact with at least a few of our wolfdogs. If you’re willing, please provide the date that you visited and the time of your tour. If you do not wish to post here, please send an email to luv2howl@optonline.net, or call my cell at 732-551-4556.

My girlfriend and I visit in November and had an amazing time. The hybrids were absolutely beautiful, and our guides educated us along the way!

My daughter (aged 12) asked to "pet a wolf" for Christmas last year. This farm was the closest place to do it from where we live, in PA. The $20 donation per person goes straight to care for these beautiful animals. Hannah, the guide was wonderful and full of information and fun facts about each wolf.
The wolves are beautiful and friendly (if you follow the directions posted). Unfortunately, it rained the day we went, so rain boots were a must as it's very muddy in each pen. I would highly recommend if you love wolves and we plan to return during a winter season when their coats are full!

This wolf dogs were beautiful, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was an hour and we learned a lot. It was amazing to get close to these animals and interact with them.

We visited Howling Woods Farm, a wolf sanctuary, today and had a wonderful time. The wolves were comfortable around people and we were able to get up-close and pet them. Hearing them all howl in unison was a great experience. We got lots of nice pictures, including us with the wolves because they posed nicely upon the platforms. Our tour guide Priscilla was very knowledgeable and Coleen also helped out. There is a cute little gift shop as well with various things for sale.

Amazing opportunity to interact with wolfdogs in a natural setting. No other animal experience with wolfdogs is available in the Northeast. One of my top 100 Things to Do at the Jersey Shore.

Thank you, we are glad you enjoyed the experience. Often times the animals don’t respond when the visitors howl, so I am glad you had the opportunity.
