SWCC is the only sanctuary in Arizona capable of caring for large mammals such as black bears, mountain lions, and Mexican gray wolves.

  • This was a wonderful adventure… loved the close up views, and knowledgeable guides. The animals were so well looked after and it felt that they were actually “loved” by their handlers . Thankyou...

  • What heartwarming place, the staff is very kind and welcoming, the grounds are done up and maintained so nice for the animals. The tour and stories about each individual animal was such a personal experience. God Bless these wonderful people for caring for the wild animals, they are true angels. ♥
  • This was a fantastic tour! We did the full moon guided tour and learned so much about the animals. We saw and heard wolves, bobcats, mountain lions, bears, coyotes, foxes and more. Very well fun facility that takes excellent care of its animals. Great family educational experience.
