Great place to visit!

I feel like Fur-Ever Wild is a neighborhood, well kept secret... a gem in the rough. Not many people are even aware of the great place that is so close, just off Dodd and 235th... read more

Took the kids as something different to do. The whole experience just didn't seem right (dirty & damp environment; heavy metal music blaring, rotten food, rickety barriers). We later did some readers to find out they "harvest" the animals. They market the business like it's a wildlife refuge/zoo, charge families to visit, then slaughter the animals in the off-season.

We went last year in between Thanksgiving and Christmas with daughter, SIL, and two grandsons and I think we all had a very good time. The animals are amazing.

We took our daughter and her friend to see all the animals and special lights they put up at Christmas. This was our second visit and we'll definitely be going back again. They're friendly, helpful and show you around while explaining about the animals you're seeing. You get to feed them (we all loved that) and enjoy complimentary hot chocolate... More

What a great place to visit and so reasonably priced. My grandsons really enjoyed feeding the wolves and other animals. You can tell that they are well cared for and loved. The volunteers were so friendly and shared a lot of interesting facts about Minnesota wildlife. We got to play with the baby foxes and pet a baby wolf. So... More

My stepson heard about this place from a friend so we decided to check it out for my 9yo step-daughters "Gotcha Day" outing as she loves animals. I was not sure what to expect but it was a nice day out and it turned out to be a nice family afternoon. It was a $25 for the 5 of us... More

I spent almost an hour just watching a large pack sleeping and interacting, whilst one tucked into a deer that was put out for the pack. Going back agian before... More

the staff was very knowledgeable and lots of animals to observe. We observed feeding time for the wolves. Not for the faint of heart. petting zoo for kids is on property. Animals can be fed for a small fee.

My car left me stranded for an extra day so we decided to check this place out. A hidden gem! The volunteers were incredible and knowledgeable about the animals. I was quite uneasy among the horses and goats from my lack of experience but one of the volunteers helped me feel comfortable and made my visit extraordinary. I can't wait... More
