Stopped in with our Photography club for an outing last year. It is amazing that they take the time to save these animals. Well worth the visit.

Hidden treasure if you love to be educated and entertained with information about wolves and wolf dogs and their individual stories. Capacity is 14 animals but the sanctuary will be moving to another larger facility in the future. The curators are knowledgeable and interesting, very willing to answer questions, and it’s evident that they care about their animals. Each wolf seems to have his or her own personality which makes them all the more interesting as the curator tells each one’s story. We also enjoyed the other curator as she explained the training needed to provide medical care for each wolf. It’s easy to make reservations through their website and the fee is reasonable. Read the information and get directions also. Go!

The Wolf Sanctuary was worth the trip. The Handler was fun, very knowledgeable and made the experience great for the variety of ages with us. What a humanitarian endeavor we can all be proud of. I wasn’t that excited to go but thought it would be something to do with my grandkids. It ended up being a great outing

The work that Richard and the wolf sanctuary are doing is so important. It is clear that they love these animals and are passionate about their well-being. My mom and I enjoyed learning each wolf's story while understanding how the sanctuary came to be. I was instantly enamored playful Meeko! Excited for them to move into a bigger location soon so these wolves can enjoy more space and fulfillment. Please support the sanctuary and their efforts!

The facility is a bit Spartan and somewhat small, but the staff is clearly committed to their cause and is dedicated to providing a positive experience for the wolves and wolfdogs. The tour takes about 90 minutes and on this day was led by Richard, the co-curator. His knowledge of the history of wolves in the world and the US was most informative. Each animal in the sanctuary has their own interesting history and personality. My only wish of what I would have liked to see but did not was how the wolves would have reacted to staff who actually entered their enclosures. Although their reactions to people entering their spaces was described, it would have been somewhat fascinating for me to actually see it. It was a particularly nice January day and we all thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
