“Sheepishly Awesome!”
Review of Mission: Wolf

Mission: Wolf
Reviewed 14 September 2016

I can't say enough about the Mission Wolf experience. Please get there and get there as soon and as often as you can. This is an amazing team of people managing an amazing pack of wolves. They know their stuff, and Kent and Tracy & their team have created as wild an environment as they possibly can while keeping the rest of the town at bay. Yes, there are fences, but the most that can possibly be done to keep the wolves satisfied has been. If you get there on a Tuesday or a Saturday before feeding time, you will have a chance to see the wolves at their most frisky selves. They are hungry and are anticipating their big feed. If you want to visit with the wolves up close, they have three ambassador wolves who will keep you company and beg you to pet them until they are done. Kent does a great job of sitting around the campfire beforehand educating the group on how to interact with wolves and about wolves and the mission.

We didn't know what to expect but boy, was this worth the drive into off the grid territory.

Amazing from start to finish. Dedicated volunteers make this wolf rescue and educational outreach program possible under the leadership of the founder who gave a very insightful talk about wolf and human behavior.

Face to face encounters with the "ambassador wolves' will be something that you will never forget especially if you are the recipient of a full on wolf kiss greeting.

Highly recommended a visit. Check out the schedule for feedings and face to face encounters to maximize your experience.

I learned so much from my journey to Mission: Wolf. I enjoyed hearing about each of the wolf's stories and how the sanctuary came about. Our guide, Austin, was a volunteer who is committed to living on the complex for a year. His knowledge and genuine care for the animals was obvious. We enjoyed petting the ambassador wolves and then participated in feeding the wolves. This is a must do on a Saturday. After the wolves were fed they began to howl which was mesmerizing. Besides learning about the wolves I enjoyed learning how the sanctuary lives 'off the grid'. The biospheres where they grow vegetables, the housing, and the vehicles that run on vegetable oil were equally fascinating. This is one of those experiences I can't stop talking about.

What an amazing and inspiring place to visit. Truly one of the highlights of our trip and we would definitely go back. We arrived during the "meet a wolf time". We could observe but we're too late to get in the enclosure. We did get to observe the wolves being fed. The founder , Kent gave a great presentation for all ages. We had a wonderful tour guide from Australia. Funded by donations and volunteers. A must see
