This place is magical.

educational, and fascinating look at the work being done, and still needs to be done, to provide long-term care for wolves and wolf dogs.

We visited Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary last Sunday afternoon (Sunday, May 15). The tour before us was larger, so we were so lucky to have Stephanie guide just the two of us. We loved seeing the Arctic wolves; the timberwolves; the high-content, middle-content, and low-content wolves which refers to the fact that they also have dog in their breeding; the... More

If you are interested in conservation and wolves, this is an interesting experience. The docent/caretaker/tour guide was informative and friendly. You will see and learn about these magnificent animals, and if you are lucky, you will get to enjoy a chorus of howling.

I saw a brochure for this place when visiting Albuqurque and decided to stop by on my way to Arizona. It was a little bit out of the way- maybe 30-45 minutes- but worth it. I got there around 2pm and was the only one there for a tour which was awesome because I got to talk 1-1 with the... More

This sanctuary is incredible and the volunteers are so dedicated. The wolves were quite beautiful, as were all of the animals. I was lucky enough to meet one of the ambassador wolves, Flurry, an arctic wolf, and I was humbled being so close to such a stately creature. I cannot say enough kind words about the staff and this wonderful... More

Highway 53 is a nice byway from Gallup, NM to Grants, NM or vice versa. It takes you past several scenic areas including El Morro, El Malpais and the Bandera Ice Cave. It is also the way to visit the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. It is about 12 miles off Hwy. 53. Turn at BIA 125 for about 8 miles... More

This place is so out of the way that you might only find it if you get lost, but don't get me wrong, it is well worth the visit if you are on your way from other nearby attractions, if you like wolves, that is. We were greeted at the small parking lot area by the howling in the near... More

We camped here for two nights JUST to hear the wolves howl ... all night long. Splendid. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Camping facilities reasonable - warm showers and port-a-John. We went on the feeding tour and then spent the rest of our time in Grants, NM.

Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is in the middle of nowhere in New Mexico. You have to drive on several gravel roads to get there, which, in my opinion, enhances the experience. The facility itself gives off a very midwest, native American vibe, which is quite nice. The staff are pleasant, and they are obviously running the organization with giving hearts.... More
