Mission: Wolf, Gardner

Education is our purpose. We currently care for up to 40 captive-born wolves and wolf-dog crosses and several horses. The refuge supports a primitive visitor center that provides visitors and volunteers with hands-on working experience. Socialized ambassador wolves travel nationally, offering public education while stimulating people to care about and respect nature.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our tour guide, Ari (sp?) Was exceptional! Hearing the story of how mission wolf began and the stories of each animal will be something I'll treasure forever. I hope to return someday. Thank you for everything y'all are doing for these animals
  • A really cool experience. This is not a petting zoo or one of those places that uses the animals to make money. This is definitely not a tourist trap. Most of the workers are volunteers. Many of their buildings are built by volunteers. They grow their own food in greenhouses to reduce costs. On its own it may not be worth it (it's out in the middle of nowhere) but if you're going to the dunes or Bishop's Castle it would definitely be worth looking into stopping by this neat experience.
