Wolf Sanctuary in Colorado

Providing Sanctuary

Interested in Donating to W.O.L.F.?

W.O.L.F. is located on 180 acres in the Rocky Mountains, approximately twenty miles northwest of Fort Collins, Colorado. Currently, W.O.L.F. utilizes only a fraction of its available acreage per county regulations. We are in the process of working with Larimer County to make the changes necessary to increase the use of the number of habitable acres.


Enclosures are constructed with eight to ten foot high nine-gauge chain link fencing and two to three foot ground wire as dig guards. They range from ¼ to one and ⅓ acre in size per pack of animals. Packs consist of two to four individuals. When the packs are well adjusted to their environment/enclosure, they tend to feel at home and do not wish to escape. Establishing a "home" environment is key. W.O.L.F. works very hard to group animals together that are well suited and to make sure they have suitable space to avoid uncomfortable situations.

It is imperative to be certain that an enclosure is built correctly from the beginning. If a wolf were to find a weak point in an enclosure, he would learn how to exploit it! They learn and improve upon their ingenuity. W.O.L.F. personnel build all enclosures firmly and soundly in order to prevent this situation.
