  • Went in not really knowing what to expect and what the interaction was going to consist of. Well the experience was amazing. The Wolves are really something to see in person and you are just in awe of the unique look and eyes of these creatures. You get right up close to several of the Wolves there and we even had one eating Ice chips out of our hands. The entire time, you feel excitement with a mix of nervousness, since they are wild animals and you never truly know if they may lose control or attack. But you are reassured by the number of visitors they have had and the staff genuinely care about the animals and are especially knowledgeable about each of the animals. Lots of great pictures. The staff are very experienced and great handling cameras and getting the right shots. Highly recommend this experience to anyone.
  • Fantastic Sanctuary and People with great knowledge about living and treatment of this wonderful grace species. However, though you might get a chance to pet a Wolf and/or getting a close encounter with the pack, don't expect this is a circus, zoo or something like Disneyland! There is no guarantee and this are wild creatures and not pet toys. Keep in mind, this is a Sanctuary, what means, all these Wolfs would be death by now without the help of all the volunteers. Every $ you pay and spend will be used to feed the Wolfs and to keep the sanctuary running.
  • Mainly because of the close encounter with this amazing and beautiful creatures. You get to learn about them from the kind people that care for them. You also learn the about tragedy that the species is dealing with in the wild. I really enjoyed my time here and I'm planning on coming back.
  • The place was great we got to hang out with the wolves and I finally got to pet one. The animals were really well taken care of and the tour was great.
  • Fantastic experience with a personal tour of the wonderful Wolf's at the Wolf Mountain Sanctuary. I only wish I had called to make a reservation. I was unexpected, yet the staff were very gracious and accomidating. I received an interactive tour with their precious animals. They answered my questions honestly, and provided a history of each animal. I have learned a new respect not only for wolves, but for these special people that rescue these animals in our system of social injustice. Yes, it would be great to give them more room to roam, but the city that oversees their establishment prohibits this. Yes, it would be great to not see their fur uncombed, nor their ears redeemed from flies, but they are wild amimals, not pets. Their keepers care for them with the utmost love and admiration in a system of restrictions. Please read "Vicious" by Jon T. Coleman for a enlightening historical perspective of the Wolf's in America. I encourage everyone to support the efforts of the sanctuary and visit these wonderful animals. Only then will you know what a special gift the Wolf Mountain Sanctuary really provides.
