Please read all of the "Visitors Rules" prior to your visit.
Some rules to keep in mind.
As a reminder you and your friends and family are visiting a wildlife sanctuary, not a zoo.
Sadly, many of our rescued animals have had negative experiences with humans prior to arriving at the sanctuary and therefore can be quite fearful of certain smells, sounds, and objects. Below are some general Sanctuary Rules that all visitors must follow:
Absolutely NO DOGS are permitted on the sanctuary grounds at any time (this includes the parking lot). The wolfdog, coyotes and foxes are extremely sensitive to other canids, therefore bringing your dog (even in your car) is extremely disruptive to the animals living at the sanctuary.
Absolutely NO SMOKING permitted on the sanctuary grounds. This poses a major fire risk to the sanctuary as well as also being very irritating for the animals’ sensitive olfactory senses.
Children are not allowed to run, wander, or behave loudly on the sanctuary grounds. In order to ensure a stress-free environment for the animals, children must be monitored at all times and kept close by. Any parent or child not respecting our policies will be asked to leave immediately.
Loud or unruly behaviour towards the animals will not be tolerated. Visitors must not whistle, call or otherwise heckle the animals. Visitors must be respectful of the wildlife and the facility at all times (i.e. do not throw things into the enclosures, do not climb over fences, do not go through restricted areas). Anyone found not respecting our safety policies will be asked to leave immediately.
By continuing with your reservation, you are agreeing to the terms stated above, and acknowledge that failure to adhere to any of the above guidelines will result in being removed from the tour with no refund.
