Owner description: Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary is the only public refuge in Montana to house native animals that cannot be returned to the wild due to injury or habituation to humans. We care for over 40 animals and birds, many placed here by Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks, including wolves, mountain lions, black bears, bison, elk, bobcat, fox, coyote, eagles, hawks, owls and many more. The sanctuary offers visitors an unparalleled chance to learn about these and other animals by observing them at close range and through interpretive displays.

This is a wonderful place that is doing great things for the animals of this region. We get to see coyotes, bears, buffalo, among other animals. We have twin eight-year-old girls who love coming here. It's a wonderful place for a quiet walk that allows you to appreciate the local wildlife. Moreover, the admission fee goes to a great cause

The wild cats at Yellowstone wildlife sanctuary are incredible... Sacajawea "mountain lion", is an amazing predator to see up close... This place is far better than any zoo or sanctuary in Montana... I go every year and will continue to do so...Wolves,coyotes,eagles,owls,cranes,buffalo,elk, fox, racoons,lynx,bobcat, and a mountain lion... I sure do miss Lewis and Clark!!!

Even when it was windy and chilly, we still had a great time walking around seeing all of the animals. Harry the magpie likes to chat and their bobcat is absolutely adorable! Had a great time!

We stayed in Red Lodge for one night, so I had looked online for the best things to see in Red Lodge. The wildlife sanctuary came up, and we were so excited to see it. We got there after a night of snow, but they were still open for business. The lady gave us an informational tour book with each animal's rescue story in it. The animals were all unable to be returned to the wild for various reasons, and the staff at the sanctuary are wonderful for caring for these animals. This is the type of place to go to educate yourself and children about wild animals! The fox was adorable :)

Visiting the sanctuary was one of the highlights of the three months I spent in Wyoming and Montana. It was such fun to see up close some of the animals I'd heard so much about but hadn't been lucky enough to glimpse in the wild in Yellowstone. I especially enjoyed seeing the gray wolves, since the Yellowstone region is so famous for them. Other highlights were the foxes, black bears, and Charlie the raccoon. The sanctuary is quiet and pleasant, complete with a little garden. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and gave me a lot of interesting information. Highly recommended for all animal lovers!
