It has been said that “the best wolf habitat resides in the human heart.” Perhaps it is also that the best habitat for our own wildness resides in the heart of the Wolf.

With all there is to do in Lancaster County, would you imagine that there is a Wolf Sanctuary only minutes from downtown Lititz? The tours are walking tours. They last about an hour – sometimes a little longer if the group is larger and there are many questions. This is an all-walking tour that starts with an introduction of how the sanctuary was formed and wolf facts. Your guide will then take you from one pack to the next introducing you to our wolves and answering questions as they are asked.

There are special events throughout the year and holidays tours for the public. Like our Music and Art fest every June and Wolf Awareness Day every October. We also do Full moon tours once every month on the Saturday closest to the full moon.
