Did you know that come June, Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary will have been operating as a specialized animal rescue and educational-based non-profit organization for 10 years?

Over our 10 years, we have helped numerous displaced wolfdogs find a forever home as well as become a leader in the education of wolfdogs and advocacy of wild wolves. We have welcomed tens of thousands of visitors to the Sanctuary to see our resident wolfdogs as well as raise awareness for responsible wolfdog ownership and the importance of protecting our wild wolf populations.

We think this is a pretty phenomenal accomplishment and would be honoured if you helped us celebrate!

On July 24th and 25th, we will be hosting our very own 10 Year Anniversary Celebration in our brand new Visitor Center and throughout the Sanctuary grounds! Come join us for a weekend of family (ages 6+) or date night fun, participate in one of our three tour options, and partake in our special 10 Year Anniversary-only activities!

We will also have YYC Food Trucks on-site from 11:30 - 7pm each day!
- Waffles N Chix will be joining us on Saturday, July 24th.
- Canadian Bear Balls & Family Squeezed Lemonade will be on-site Sunday, July 25th.

On both days of this event we will be hosting a Support Local Market filled with local vendors and a draw to win a 10 Year Anniversary gift basket! There will be a ton to see and do during this event so be sure to book your tour and purchase activity add-on tickets now before they sell out!
