We are NOT in any immediate danger

Please be aware that there are several active wildfires throughout New Mexico and Arizona that may affect travel to and from the wolf sanctuary. Please call the Gift Shop if you need more information, as we are trying to stay on top of road and fire information: 505-775-3304.

Ways You Can Help!

As a 501(c)(3) wolf and wolfdog sanctuary, we are only able to perform our mission through the kindness, generosity, and dedication of people like you!

Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary receives no government funding; we rely on donations and support from individuals, businesses, and a variety of organizations to provide for our many animals, support our volunteers and staff, and assist with our infrastructure.

Any type of support is greatly appreciated! From donations of time, money, and resources, to a simple social media like or share, anyone can help our pack!
