Thank you so much to everyone who celebrated with Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary on October 19th, as we hosted our 13th Annual Howl-o-ween event! 

Whether you visited us on-site, donated, or tuned-in to our live feeds via Instagram, our rescues send their howls of thanks! All types of support are greatly appreciated by the Team and rescues alike.

If you could not join us from afar or on-site this year, no worries! Wild Spirit hosts this special Howl-o-ween event every October, and we would love to have you celebrate with us next time.

Keep in mind, lodging on-site and in the surrounding area books fast, so consider reserving your spot early! Perhaps make a fun road trip out of your visit, too, and check out the local sites or spend the day before exploring Albuquerque. New Mexico has many wonderful experiences to offer!  

We hope to see you next year!


Saturday, October 19th


As the mornings become more crisp, the weeds dry up, and children return to school, we feel the end of summer approaching, and with autumn Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary prepares for our 13th Annual Howl-o-ween event.

We invite all of you to join us for this seasonal treat!

Our doors will open to the public at 10:30 AM with our first FREE Standard Tour of the day set to start at 11:30 AM. While you wait, help yourself to some refreshments, purchase your Howl-o-ween Raffle ticket for a chance to win 1-of-3 Wild Spirit exclusive prizes, or buy a round of game tickets to try your hand at Beanbag-Toss or to have your face painted by one of our Team!

At 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM, Wild Spirit is offering up to 100 people the chance to participate in an encounter for only $10 a person! No need to reserve in advance—it will be first come, first served.

Wild Spirit is hosting our annual Pumpkin Toss as a feeding tour for up to 15 people at 9:00 AM. The cost is $25 per person. Be sure to reserve your spot online, or by calling (505) 775-3304!

Come enjoy Howl-o-ween with Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary!
