Somehow I missed the clear memo that you need an appointment to tour. I was super lucky and they let us pay a little more and join in on the daily tour, but I do not think this is something common. It was very much appreciated. The story behind this sanctuary is sweet. The wolves are rescued and happy. You get to hear all their stories. Totally worth the visit and would pay triple to tour it again - it all goes to the critters. Small gift shop onsite as well.

This was our 2nd visit, and we loved it even more than the first visit. The staff are great. Abby who led our tour was engaging and extremely well-versed in the lives of the wolves and wofldogs.

Stopped in with our Photography club for an outing last year. It is amazing that they take the time to save these animals. Well worth the visit.

Hidden treasure if you love to be educated and entertained with information about wolves and wolf dogs and their individual stories. Capacity is 14 animals but the sanctuary will be moving to another larger facility in the future. The curators are knowledgeable and interesting, very willing to answer questions, and it’s evident that they care about their animals. Each wolf seems to have his or her own personality which makes them all the more interesting as the curator tells each one’s story. We also enjoyed the other curator as she explained the training needed to provide medical care for each wolf. It’s easy to make reservations through their website and the fee is reasonable. Read the information and get directions also. Go!

The Wolf Sanctuary was worth the trip. The Handler was fun, very knowledgeable and made the experience great for the variety of ages with us. What a humanitarian endeavor we can all be proud of. I wasn’t that excited to go but thought it would be something to do with my grandkids. It ended up being a great outing
