Most People Have No Idea This Wolf Sanctuary Is Hiding In Missouri
Are you looking for a place where you and your kids will have a howling good time? You probably had no idea that this wolf sanctuary is hiding right here in the Show Me State. Just west of St. Louis in Eureka is the
Endangered Wolf Center where you can learn about wolf ecology and see these beautiful and often misunderstood animals up-close and personal.
The Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka is an amazing non-profit that works to preserve and protect wolf populations through educational programs, managed breeding, and reintroduction to the wild.
If you need a preview of the amazing animals at the center check out their

Have you ever wondered what is was like to be an animal keeper?
At the Endangered Wolf Center you can be a keeper for a day and learn how to care for these amazing animals at the center. This is a great way to get up-close and personal with the animals. Those age 14-17 require an adult to attend as a chaperone.
You can also take an hour and half long PredaTour or a photography tour.
During the summer months of June, July, and August, PredaTours are offered at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Fridays, and 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 1.pm. on Saturdays and Sundays.
The expert keepers will educate you on all the species of wolves and foxes that are being cared for at the center.
If you're an educator planning for the up-coming school year, consider a field trip to the Endangered Wolf Center.
Your students will get plenty of hands-on educational experience. There are three different educational options perfect for kids at every grade level.
Nopal, the Maned Wolf, is ready to meet you!
There are also great events for younger kids throughout the year.
Check out the Messy Play Day or better yet consider the Endangered Wolf Center for your child's next birthday party!
Kids love to visit with the adorable Fennec Foxes.
Although they are extremely adorable, Fennec Foxes are ultimately still a wild animal. However, you can "adopt" a Fennec Fox (or any of the other animals at the center) and help support their livelihood. Plus you will get an annual membership, photos, and your own stuffed animal fox to cuddle up to at night.
Adults can re-connect with their wild side at Yoga with Wolves, Wine and Cheese Wolf Howl, or Foxy Fridays.
These events are not only fun but help to support the animals at the center.
Check out their
website and plan your ultimate day with the wolves!
