  • We weren't sure if we wanted to drive the 100+ miles, but we were glad we did. There is nothing glamorous about the sanctuary, however, they saved the lives of all those wolves, wolf hybrids (wolf-dog...  more »

  • Unreal experience! A must-visit if you're in New Mexico. Great staff, great information, great animals, great everything! You'll have to see for yourself! Keep in mind that there is a 4 mile gravel road to the property - not a big deal at all, but good to know!
  • This place was super cool to visit, but I wouldn't say it's a must see. The staff and animals are amazing, but it's kind of sad to view all of the enclosures. At least you know your money is supporting something great and it's definitely a learning experience!
  • We had a most enjoyable and educational experience here. You truly fall in love with these stunning wolves. What a surprise to see a pure white wolf. Great tours provided by friendly and dedicated guides. (Tours start at 11:00am, 2:00pm & 3:30pm; no reservations required.) Important to wear a hat during the summer, a bit scarce on shade. Gift shop also offers some snacks and water. Primitive type camping, for the adventurous, is available at a very reasonable cost.
  • If you have a heart, put this wolf rescue on your Bucket List! Tour the sanctuary, meet incredible volunteers, learn all about wolves & other unique canids, peruse their Gift Shop in a hogan (Navajo-style building). You can even stay in their campground nextdoor & get to hear all the wolves at dawn.
  • The people there know their stuff. Very clean and worthwhile.
