Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary is dedicated to providing educational programs on responsible wolfdog ownership and the importance of preserving wild wolves in their natural environment. We are also dedicated the rescue and safe sanctuary of wolfdogs and welcome visitors to come and see our beautiful wolfdogs and learn all about them.
For over 25 years, DWP has provided "forever" homes for orphaned or unwanted wildlife. Animals that are not releasable have, historically been euthanized - DWP gives them a second chance at life by allowing them to live out their lives comfortably. Daily animal presentations allow us to educate our visitors on conservation issues and the challenges that are face by wildlife everyday. We also provide awareness of what we can do to help alleviate these stresses. Our visitors love the opportunity to have face-to-face encounters with our resident animals! An opportunity not to be missed!
