Mission: Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary is dedicated to the care of rescued, non-releasable wolves and wolfdogs. We do not buy, sell, or breed them. We believe they deserve a stable home for the rest of their natural lives, with an abundance of loving and compassionate care. We also support educating the public about issues involving wolves and wolfdogs, and dispelling the many myths that surround these frequently misunderstood animals. We welcome community organizations, groups, and individuals who wish to visit and learn the truth about wolves and wolfdogs, and why these are rarely suitable companion animals.
Results: We have directly rescued and provided loving, lifelong homes to 24 animals--many of them saved from situations of extreme abuse or neglect--and have saved many more through our networking and conversations with owners, shelters, and Animal Control agencies. We have also educated tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world about wolves and wolfdogs.
