Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that
is licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture. Located east
of Ramah, New Mexico, the sanctuary takes in wolves from people who
would try to make them into pets.

The wolves are kept in compatible pairs or family groups in large
wooded habitats ranging in size from 5,000 square feet to one acre. All
enclosures contain shelters and many include ponds. The sanctuary is
open to the public Tuesday through Sunday and offers four daily tours.

Each year, wolf ambassadors and educators from the sanctuary attend
many local events and visit dozens of schools and libraries in an effort
to demonstrate that wild animals are not pets. They also educate the
public about the wild wolf and the complexities of wolf-dog ownership.
The sanctuary is funded primarily by private donations and receives no
government funding. You can learn more about Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary
