Dedicated to Wolf and Wolfdog Rescue and Sanctuary

Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing displaced, unwanted, and non-releasable captive-bred wolves, wolfdogs, and other wild canid species.

We are not an adoption agency. Instead, we welcome animals from all over the United States and each rescue is provided with permanent, safe sanctuary and lifelong care through nutrition, medical support, enrichment, and animal companionship, when applicable.

To further support our rescues, the team also focuses on educational efforts that seek to inform the general public about the animals in our care, both in the wild and in captivity.

As a non-profit organization, we do not receive government funding and rely almost entirely on donations to support our operations.

To learn more about how you can help support our work and our rescues, visit our “How You Can Help” page!

Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is home to 55 canids, including wolves and wolfdogs, coyotes, Australian dingoes, New Guinea singing dogs, foxes, and domestic dogs!

The Howling Reporter Magazine

Now publishing quarterly!
Four times a year we publish a beautiful, full-color magazine for our Howling Supporters! This 16-page publication contains news pertaining to the rescues, upcoming events, and opportunities to participate as a supporter; educational information; and features that support our three principles—rescue, sanctuary, and education.

As a leading wolf and wolfdog sanctuary that relies heavily on public donations, we could use your help!

Donations of $50 or more are eligible when you donate, create a membership, or sponsor a rescue! Check out your options!

Ways You Can Help

As a non-profit organization, we do not receive government funding and rely almost entirely on donations to support our operations, but donations aren’t the only way to support our mission.

We rely heavily upon donations of money and resources to provide the highest quality care to all of our animals.

Donations can be made in honor of a loved one, and you can even choose to donate a monthly amount.

If you like to shop on Amazon, we have an Amazon Wish List, or you can use AmazonSmile to help us when shopping for yourself and others.



Sponsoring a rescue is a great way to show your support!

Not only are you helping us to feed and care for our rescues, but you can get some cool rewards for yourself, such as a sponsorship certificate and fridge magnet, which both feature your sponsored rescue!

Consider sponsoring your favorite critter, either for yourself, or as a gift for someone you know who loves animals!

We are always grateful for help from individuals and groups.

“Weekend Warriors” and “Long-Term Volunteers” have been critical to our success!
