Shy Wolf Sanctuary


Shy Wolf Sanctuary: non-profit rescue organization, tours, and programs.

Shy Wolf Sanctuary

Visiting Shy Wolf Sanctuary is a fascinating educational experience for young and old alike.

The Sanctuary was started in 1993 with a Black Asian Leopard named Moondance. Today, the Sanctuary is a refuge for numerous exotic displaced animals that have been bred in captivity.

In addition to providing for the care of these special animals in need of rescue, Shy Wolf educates the community on the need to protect and preserve them.

You will find many unusual and exciting animals including wolves, wolf dogs, gopher tortoises, foxes, cougars and more!

The educational program is forever expanding and the all-volunteer staff works with schools and visitors as well as with the local and state animal control offices.

You will see the Shy Wolf staff at public events such as the annual festival at the Koreshan State Historical Site in Estero, the Punta Gorda Car Show, Petco, Books-a-Million, and Bell Tower Mall events plus many other locally sponsored events.

This knowledgeable Staff is always available to address schools, churches, or organizations about their program.

The Sanctuary always welcomes small private tours as well as larger group tours.

Your visit will allow you to interact with many of the animals or, you can enjoy just observing as the animals intermingle with each other.

To visit the Sanctuary, please call to make arrangements.

Sponsorships, donations of money or supplies, and fund raisers are a very important part of the continuation of this extraordinary program.

Whatever you can do to help in any of these areas, the Sanctuary will be most grateful.
