Help Us Move

We have the land – now help us build our dream home for the Wolves AND for Our Supporters

Help us reach our goal for improvements to current buildings, including an on-site vet clinic and infirmary!

W.O.L.F.’s current location, home to the Sanctuary for the past 21 years, is no longer suitable for our organization’s needs in a number of ways. The costly devastation of the 2012 High Park Fire and the ongoing threat of flooding incidents resulting from the fire’s effect make the land unsuitable for our operations. Adding to these issues is the low limit on the number of animals we can care for at this property, along with restrictions on being open to the public for educational programs and public tours.



The location is northwest of our current property but with easy access and still within quick driving distance of Fort Collins. Pending County approval on certain points, this property will allow us to:

  • Have larger enclosures for each wolf pair
  • Have a significant buffer from neighboring homes, along with backing to 80 acres of a State preserve
  • Enable us to provide tours to the general public that will be conducted in the most respectful and non-stressful manner for the wolves
  • Allow schoolchildren to come for educational programs, a major part of W.O.L.F.’s mission
  • Have on-grid utilities at less cost and at more efficiency than at our current off-the-grid facility

And allow us to finally meet so many of you, our wonderful supporters, in person!

Thanks to over 900 donors from around the globe, W.O.L.F. purchased the property on April 28th. But that’s just the first step in the process of relocation. Additional costs that will occur between now and our move in the latter half of 2017 include:

  • Building larger enclosures (fencing is expensive!)
  • Improvements to current buildings, including remodeling for an on-site vet clinic and infirmary
  • Cutting in a new driveway and putting in paved parking areas
  • Extra facilities for visitors
  • And our monthly mortgage, which runs around $2,900.
