Really enjoyed our visit today; the wolves are beautiful. Mostly they were snoozing in the sun, but Flora was alert & watching us! The staff are friendly & the interpretive talk was both entertaining & very informative. Worth a visit if you are in Golden.

This is not a large multi animal sanctuary! This is a place dedicated to protecting, teaching about, and showing people two species of wolves. This is also a place that advocates for humane treatment of these beautiful animals. When’s the last time you heard or...More
