Dedicated to Wolf and Wolfdog Rescue and Sanctuary

Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to rescuing displaced, unwanted, and non-releaseable captive-bred wolves, wolfdogs, and other related species. We specialize in wolf and wolfdog rescue, though at this time we also rescue and care for foxes, Australian dingoes, New Guinea singing dogs, and coyotes.

We are not an adoption agency.

As a wolf and wolfdog rescue sanctuary, we are committed to educating the public on matters concerning ownership of wolves and wolfdogs, and lifetime care of our rescues. We rely almost completely on the generous support of the public.

All visitors to Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary must be escorted beyond the inner courtyard; no one is allowed to wander freely around the animal habitats. This requirement ensures the safety of our guests and, most importantly, reduces stress for many of our rescues. However, our well-educated and trained staff are eager to share their knowledge, experiences, and passion with guests on tour!

Explore our “How You Can Help” page if you find you’ve been smitten by our critters and wish to support our rescues! All proceeds from sponsorships, memberships, enrichment donations, tours, and Gift Shop sales directly support our rescues by offsetting the costs to provide high-quality food, enrichment, medical care, and habitat maintenance.

The team is always eager to welcome new members to the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary Family!

Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is home to 53 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

Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is predominantly funded by donations and grants; we receive no government funding at this time. We rely on the kindness and support of individuals and organizations as deeply committed to the care of our rescues as we are. There are so many ways you can support us to continue our mission. Can you help?

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!
