In June 2011, the Sanctuary was created to drive public awareness and education surrounding wolfdogs and wolves in the wild. We welcome visitors to come and experience our wolfdogs in person to learn about their unique nature, how we can reduce backyard breeding of these animals and the connected importance of wolf conservation. Our Sanctuary is located on 160 acres of land near Cochrane, Alberta and have a current pack of resident wolfdogs and adoptable wolfdogs, all with different wolf content levels. Our future goal is to become a resource for the conservation of wolves in the wild.
This was one of the most informative, awe inspiring, humbling experiences of my life. The amazing animals & the passion of our guide Angie was fabulous. Not only will I go back again, highly recommend for all dog lovers.
I was extremely impressed at how they want to do as much as possible to educate the public about the plight of these wolfdogs. Thank goodness there is a place like this to help them. I am planning on returning yearly if not more often.
This was by far one of my favorite activities to do when I was on vacation in Banff.
The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and really impressed. The entire experience exceeded my expectations.
Absolutely amazing, certainly a hidden Alberta gem. We participated in an interactive tour where Angie shared her stories and knowledge of working with the wolfdogs. It was great, we got to feed them treats. Nova performed tricks. Loki welcomed us into the enclosure, eventually shaking my hand.
Can't even explain how amazing this experience was. The staff were so kind and knowledgeable. The wolfdogs were so beautiful and friendly to meet. Gift shop is a must if you want to support this non profit place.
The wolfdogs were majestic animals and it was amazing to have them eat treats out of our hands. We even got to participate in a wolfdog howl. So much fun, so interesting and really enjoyed the beautiful animals!
