“Awe inspiring nature preserve!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

This is a great trip for families, classes, or homeschool groups. Make sure you call ahead to schedule a tour. We showed up without calling and discovered the free private tours are by appointment only. Luckily Paul was willing to take time out of his busy renovation and expansion schedule and give us a tour last minute. We could tell he has a true and deep passion for these animals, most all of which have been rescued from harmful circumstances. We not only got to learn some great facts about the different species but we got to hear about their backstories, personalities, and even their love lives. This is a great way to get up close and personal with animals and their habitats. Best of all it's free, but be prepared to donate generously when you see the heroing work they are doing.

“Fun for the whole family!!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

We had such a great time at Red Wolf Sanctuary. The animals were beautiful and Paul, who took us on the tour was a great storyteller! We cannot wait to return later this spring to see the bears once they are out of hibernation (which Paul said would be in another couple of weeks). A great adventure for adults and kids alike!!

“Up close with animals”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

What an adventure! We got to drive a little jungle 4 x 4 car like a Jurassic Park ride through the compound. The owner is amazing and a true patron saint! This is better than any zoo- I have been to most of them. You do not get to pet the animals but get to feed them and interact with them. This place is free but after having the time of my life here and seeing how these rescued animals are so well taken care of, I made a generous donation to help feed them. Most animals were rescued from bad owners so many were very people friendly and not scared of us. The animals came from abuse situations but are now being lovingly cared for. I can't say enough good things, worth the trip!
