WolfSong Sanctuary: A Safe Haven for Wolves

Native Americans say that wolves
taught the first people how to be people.
Their lessons were simple:
Mate for life.
Care for your children.
Teach them useful skills and respect.
Be loyal to family.
WolfSong Sanctuary is dedicated to saving the lives of wolf hybrids. These unique and beautiful animals are “near wolves” — 94 to 98% wolf and first generation crosses who have no place in either the domesticated world or the wild.   Home to sixty hybrids and growing, WolfSong Sanctuary hosts tours of the sanctuary and offers talks and presentations on wolves and wolf preservation.
At WolfSong, visitors of all ages can view, touch and feed the wolves.  The Sanctuary’s Director, Deirdre Wolf (yes, that’s really her name) even provides transportation to the site, located in the mountains north of Silver City, New Mexico.

The wolves of WolfSong Sanctuary have arrived here after lives of abuse and near-death. Some were scheduled for euthanasia, others beaten and abandoned. The Sanctuary offers them a new life in a pack of their own, safe on Sanctuary land  where they’re free to roam in safety, enjoying human and animal company and the occasional treat or two. Like wolves in the wild, WolfSong’s residents are shy and non-aggressive toward humans.
WolfSong Sanctuary is a nonprofit organization, supported by volunteers and donations. The Sanctuary provides a home for those who have no other refuge, and keeps the magic of the wild alive and open to all.  It needs your help to survive.    To donate, or for more information,  contact the Sanctuary at:

  1. We have a wolf dog, we have had him for over 5+ years, we used to live in Corrales, with a 6 foot+ fence and an acre of land and someone was always home. However, we had to move and we now have him in a regular residential setting and he is miserable, at least when no one is home. He has a companion, but it just doesn't stop him from destroying everything he can, digging and jumping over our 4 foot fence. We have taken care of his getting out of the yard for now, but he is already tearing up the wood slats. We are at our wits end and do not know what to do next. We love him, but are just incapable of taking care of him any longer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We would be willing to donate $500 to help take care of his needs at least for a little while. George is leery of strangers, will get along with other dogs after an initial break in period, but he really is loving and affectionate and not at all vicious, if he can turn and run away from a stranger that is what he will do first. He is house broken, healthy and a beautiful animal.

    I learned of your sanctuary from this online article.
