Reviews for Wolves Woods & Wildlife

The reason this so called business keeps evolving and changing is because they keep breeding the animals so when they reach maturity they can be destroyed, skinned and sold. The owner has sworn to this under oath in a court of law. To try to cloak this shady business under the guise of a non-profit educational experience makes me sick!

I would do a zero star if possible. This "charity" is nothing but a sham 501c3 to cover for a for profit business. The owner breeds wolves, fishers, foxes, prairie dogs, and any animal she can. She then displays the animals, gets donations, has volunteers etc, and charges to "pet" or photograph the baby animals. Come winter, she kills and skins the animals and sells the bones, meat, hides, teeth, nails, you name it. DO NOT DONATE TO THIS FAKE AND DISGUSTING charity. The animals are kept in small dirty cages with no water, and cats and chickens roaming about. If a cat or chicken happens to get in the wolf cage, opps, stupid cat.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

remove all animals and not renew any licensing

We should not be providing funds to entities that skin animals. This is not a non-profit task. Learn to make a living doing more productive shores that does not involve skinning animals. Shame on you.

The conditions of this farm are bad. Lack of water for the animals, too small cages, filthy, old. Worse, the animals are skinned when the market is good - from Terri Petter's own deposition. Google it. The nonprofit seems like a front for her fur pelting business - Fur-Ever Wild - nothing wild about this place

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Completely close it down.

Wolves, Woods & Wildlife is focused mainly on Wolves but they also have other animals including Cougars, Goats, Raccoons, Chickens, Horses, Porcupines, Prairie Dogs, Foxes, Rabbits, Bobcats, etc, etc, as well as all of their off-spring. My girlfriend is a volunteer so my exposure to the experience is frequent and I see changes every time I visit. They work really hard to ensure the experience keeps changing. The experience keeps evolving and it's worth your time as an individual or as a family, to pay them a visit.
