A must do if you are in the area! The staff and volunteers were very nice and accommodating. We arrived from south Louisiana (4 hours away) almost two hours early for our tour and they let us do our tour early. It was cold and raining but we still had a great time. The wolfdogs looked very happy and well cared for. Will definitely come here again!!

We love their new home and the gift shop with lots of quality gifts from which to choose. We came for a special event and found out we can bring our RV to stay in for their sleepover nites. The wolves looked to be in excellent condition and their areas were spacious and well thought out. The docents were friendly and informative. All our questions were answered and we came away with some beautiful souvenirs. Well worth the trip. A great place to bring families and enjoy the outdoors.

We've visited a variety of animal refuges over the years. The caregivers and volunteers were very knowledgeable and the property is well maintained. We went just to see, but loved it so much that we will comeback to volunteer. Our future definitely will include wolf dogs!

Visited the sanctuary today with my cousin. We were greeted with smiles from the very friendly staff. We learned so much about the wolf dogs. Everything from their natural instincts, how they interact with the other wolf dogs to what they eat and how they entertain themselves. All of the animals were good natured and friendly. We actually were allowed in the enclosures and were able to interact and pet these beautiful animals. I was so surprised at how timid they were. The sanctuary is doing such a wonderful job protecting and giving these animals a second chance at a good life. I loved it.

Texas Wolf Dog Project is doing a fantastic job taking excellent care of these wonderful wolf dogs while finding them a forever home and offering guests the chance to learn and interact with wolf dogs. My husband, son, and I visited St. Francis Wolf Sanctuary a few months ago and loved that too, and we all thought the two are complementary; St. Francis is more focused on wolves and education, and TWDP is much more "up close and personal" (be prepared to be licked on the face by these wonderful dogs while you are petting them) and is a rescue organization. Steve did a great job explaining what to expect and kept simple the how-to's necessary for safety so we were not nervous but prepared. We enjoyed hearing the story of each dog and special personality traits. The volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable also. We were curious about the wolf dogs, and this visit piqued our interest in volunteering, especially since the facility is top notch with very large and heavily shaded enclosures for the wolf dogs to run and play. There are about 20 dogs at TWDP now, and we were able to interact (hands on) with nearly all of them, thanks to Steve. He does not rush through the tour, despite the hot weather, and clearly enjoys continuing the socialization of the wolf dogs.
There aren't any steps or challenging paths, so that makes this place more accessible than most. We highly recommend this to anyone interested in wolves or dogs. Our visit also confirmed it's a worthy cause that will properly steward donations.

My family, friend, and I had an incredible experience at this sanctuary. The staff was very welcoming and friendly and they informed us on each animal's backstory and personality. We highly recommend paying the sanctuary a visit and getting to know these wonderful animals!

My fiancé and I just visited the Texas Wolfdog Project on 2/25/17 and it was so wonderful! We had a wonderful guide who told us all about each wolf dog! Such great people. This was an awesome date!

We visited the TWDP yesterday and it was a moving experience on many levels. First of all, the gracious staff went out of their way to accommodate the needs of my 88 year-old father-in-law (Opa) who walks with a cane, and my husband, a military veteran who travels with his service dog, Lexi. For obvious safety reasons, outside dogs are not allowed around the shelter animals, and we came fully expecting that we'd take turns sitting with my husband's dog in the car while the others visited the wolfdogs. However, Lexi was welcomed with open arms into the air conditioned gift shop, we were offered bottles of water, and Opa was offered a chair to rest in. (It was hot and humid, with storms in the area).

Second, we were moved by the obvious affection between the staff and the wolfdogs. Austin, the owner - Dawn, a volunteer - and Steve, one of the handlers, educated us about the project, took extra time to answer all our questions, and showed us around the sanctuary, allowing us to enter the pens and get up close and personal with some of the animals. We thought it was sweet that, while all the dogs have names, they also have nicknames affectionately bestowed according to the dog's personality or physical characteristic.

We were impressed by the cleanliness and safety of the facility and the level of understanding, kindness, and patience the staff showed toward these magnificent creatures. One aspect that stood out was the desire of the TWDP to educate the public about the special needs of these animals that are neither wolf nor dog, but a unique hybrid that requires a dedicated, skilled, and knowledgable owner willing to create a safe environment for both the wolfdog and the people involved in its care. Not everyone qualifies to adopt - nor should they.

My husband and I fell in love with Onyx, one of the females, and would loved to have adopted her. However, our life situation doesn't allow bringing another dog into our home. So, we did the next best thing - we made a donation toward Onyx's care. I'm sure Austin will find a sweet girl like her the perfect home!

Even if you or someone in your group has special needs, I highly recommend a visit to this shelter - the staff are as kind to the two-legged creatures as they are to the four-legged ones.

Out in the country outside of Montgomery, Texas (easily navigated through GoogleMaps) is the Texas Wolfdog Project. These animals are majestic and hauntingly beautiful! Do you know the 8 differences between wolves and dogs? Can you quickly tell the differences? Would you like to pet one? Would you like to volunteer by providing labor or food supplements to this organization?

All these things you can do on a Saturday outing! As Fall and Winter weather cools down, come out into the country and experience the beauty! It is closer than the Renaissance Festival but located in its vicinity. Tours are $15 for adults.

I've been to different sanctuary and rescues before. I was very impressed. Their enclosures were large and accommodating. Volunteers were easily able to advise which animals would be most appropriate for us to visit with a child. Rules were clear and for the protection of us and the animals. We had an amazing time and will definitely go back.
