Visit one of the largest sanctuaries in Canada and hear about the mission of this wolfdog rescue organization.

An experienced staff member will safely lead you through the enclosure during the tour. Enjoy a self-guided sanctuary walk either before or after your tour.  Take photographs of one of the packs of wolfdogs from inside their enclosure and ask the wolfdog experts any questions you may have.

Excellent! To get the most out of the experience, I highly recommend beginning the tour with the 30 information/introduction session. Knowing more about the animals and hearing about their individual history will enable you to focus on enjoyment of the experience. The need to speculate, assume and make wild guesses about the circumstances that led to the animals’ lives in the sanctuary will be eliminated. Staff were able to field a wide range of questions.

I left very thankful for the woman that started this sanctuary. What a fabulous, loving, caring, educational facility. Our adult children, partners, and grandchildren loved their time here. We hope you continue to thrive in your learning and loving.

What an amazing place! Our guide was super informative and just being near these amazing animals was worth the money. Keep up the good work guys 🙌🤩

I loved the place, the information shared and the noble activity they carry out at the shelter

I found the experience knowledgeable and insightful with the Wolfdog Sanctuary Tour.
