As others have said, this is a place you would never expect to find in a residential neighborhood. The couple who own the property and many, many volunteers have dedicated their lives (and fortunes) to taking care of these animals. Wolves, wolf/dog hybrids (about 20 each), several Arctic foxes, a Florida panther, a bobcat, and a few other assorted species have found a safe haven here after being either abandoned or neglected. It is such a shame that people don't have more common sense than to acquire an animal that is wild thinking they can manage it. How "cool" it must be to own one of these. Thank goodness there are people that will step up and take care of these animals when they are either abandoned or neglected..
You need to make a reservation (easy enough to do on-line) to take the tour of the facilities. The owner gives a 15 minute or so presentation that is quite informative on why the sanctuary exists along with the dos and don'ts while you are on the tour. We went with friends and can't say enough about the experience of seeing and being with some of these animals.
There is no charge to take the tour but donations are gladly accepted (but not solicited). We gladly left donations. The sanctuary is staffed by many volunteers that help feed, clean and otherwise care for the animals. I honestly don't know how they can take care of that many animals without some type of funding.
The tour was several hours long and before we left, one of the volunteers got the wolves howling. It was a real treat for us to be so close to real wolves howling in unison. It gave us all goose bumps.
I highly recommend taking the tour if you are into seeing and interacting with real wolves.
