Overview

Howling Woods Farm, located in Jackson, NJ, is a 501(c)(3) animal shelter that rescues and places domestic bred wolves, wolfdog hybrids and northern breeds. We also provide education and information to the general public about wolves and wolfdogs. You can often find us at public events, with our animals, throughout the State of New Jersey. Located in Jackson Township, New Jersey, it is situated on a 10 acre pinewoods forest in the Pinelands National Reserve. We are about 3 miles away from Six Flags Great Adventure. Tours by appointment only. Guided walking tours are 1 hour where you can interact with the wolfdogs while learning about wolves, wolfdogs and our rescue.

I went today with 5 boys aged 10-12. It was remarkable. The animals are gentle and beautiful. No need to fear these magnificent animals. Our guide was patient and articulate. It was a wonderful day and a must do for all animal lovers.
