"It was never my intention to have a sanctuary for wolves and wolfdogs. However, my experience is that there are
no accidents, and even coincidences may be best described as situations in which God chooses to remain anonymous."

Welcome to Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary

Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity in Montgomery, Texas, run by volunteers and created to provide a permanent home for non-releasable wolves and wolfdogs to live out the rest of their natural lives safely and comfortably with loving care and attention. These animals have suffered much and deserve a stable and loving home. SFWS is also committed to educating the public about wolves, conservation issues, and the downsides of exotic pets. For more on our work, see here.
