Join the Pack

The California Wolf Center is dedicated to the recovery of wolves in the wildlands they once roamed. We envision a landscape where wolves thrive in healthy ecosystems and wolves and people successfully coexist. Because our dedicated volunteers help keep costs down, over 90% of every dollar you contribute goes directly toward caring for our resident wolves and supporting our conservation work, with the remainder being used to help maintain our facility. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit and are winners of a 2013 Top-Rated Award from GreatNonprofits. Help support our important work today!
