We took a standard tour led by a very knowledgeable guide. The sanctuary provides a habitat for rescued wolves and educational experience for visitors. Well maintained with large enclosures for the animals. Animals appeared comfortable and well cared for. A group following us opted for a close up experience including petting a wolf. Watching the experience was interesting. Initial apprehension... More

This Sanctuary is past Ramah, NM. You will get off the main highway and go four miles on a very bumpy gravel road to get here. Right across the street is a small trading post that you can buy some snacks or stop and eat. The cost of admission is $10 per adult, $5.00 for kids. The tours are an... More

Did a standard tour and loved every minute of it. Our tour guide was very well informed and entertaining, knew the animals well and you could tell they take great care of them. Will be coming back for a specialty tour to meet Flurry the Arctic Wolf!

The people here truly love their wolves. Most of the the 60+ wolves are rescues and and now have a permanent home. These wolves are healthy with plenty of room to roam. They are paired in their own individual areas and visitors during the guided tour you can view and meet the wolves up close and personal. These are amazing... More

The entire weekend was full of pleasant surprises. We stayed in the Lodge which is a beautiful 3 bedroom modular home. It was very comfortable and easy for 4 large people to relax in. Fully appointed kitchen means all you need to bring is food. Dish network and wifi if you want to stay inside, but you won't. Tour of... More

Staff was friendly, would recommend taking a bottle of water with you. It doesn't look very big, but they take their time discussing the animals. We happen to be there with a GIANT Boy Scout Troop. We wish we would have opted for the private tour. They said it was the biggest group they had, and of course we were... More

educational, and fascinating look at the work being done, and still needs to be done, to provide long-term care for wolves and wolf dogs.

We visited Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary last Sunday afternoon (Sunday, May 15). The tour before us was larger, so we were so lucky to have Stephanie guide just the two of us. We loved seeing the Arctic wolves; the timberwolves; the high-content, middle-content, and low-content wolves which refers to the fact that they also have dog in their breeding; the... More

If you are interested in conservation and wolves, this is an interesting experience. The docent/caretaker/tour guide was informative and friendly. You will see and learn about these magnificent animals, and if you are lucky, you will get to enjoy a chorus of howling.
