WolfEcho Valleys A Wolf Adventure, A Wild Encounter wishes to
make your visit and experience with us one you'll never forget. We hope to impress upon the public memories to last a
lifetime. And award opportunities just not found in a typical wildlife facility.
Any required donations for any booked appt's are used strictly for the wolves, their upkeep (vet and feed
bills) the enrichment and habitat fund. You can be assured you are helping to support a worthy cause and see in person
where any donations go.
I strive to
make any visit intimate and personal for each person, and take great pride and passion in my work enough to share that world.
All bookings are privately made, doors are not just open to the public to come
and go at will. The gift shop and eco center will encompass many exciting gift ideas and more for all age groups and outdoor
NOTE! AWA-AWE is not open to the public the way a typical zoo is. This policy
was implemented to cut down on people simply wanting to gawk at a wolf (people can go to zoos for that) and not have
pure intent in truly learning and being open to learn, about a highly misunderstood animal, and meeting
them in a way just not possible at typical zoos. Time is precious in my life and considered
a gift. I simply don't have the time to gift other beings, whom do not have an appreciation, even a base appreciation
for all life, and the environment. To me these things are sacred gifts. This does not mean you have to be crazy about
wolves, but for those whom are ill intentioned, such mentalities will be weeded out more easily.
Some special org's like make a wish foundation, all donation fees are waived completely.
If you are a Teacher, please visit
Fees are based on either
family/group/couple/single person visit, at the time of booking this must be clarified, people wise. Young
children will not be allowed within any wolf habitats. Due to not making a living off of what I do, and working for
a living to currently support this venture, fees are a little higher, than simply going to a zoo. However, the
experience will be one to remember forever. The visit is not cookie cutter, and will be unique to each person.
If you have ever wanted to learn indepth about wolves
from a professional whom can answer all your quesitons, and in a way not dreamt possible, then you have come to the right
Fees based on VIP interactive visits
Single ...25.00 (One visit/one person) IF the person would like to be able to interact
with any of the ambassador wolves.
Groups of 4 (max allowed)... price is $80.00
Non pro-cameras will be allowed to be taken into the enclosures, at the owners own risk, no professional cameras/cameras with
zoom lens are allowed unless a photography session, and fee is booked, and paid for. You will be asked to
sign a photography release upon arrival, this states any pictures taken during a standard visit or VIP visit cannot be
used for any professional/commercial purposes (The owner of A Wolf Adventure however for an extra $25.00 can
take photos of the interaction to remember their time and experience, these can then be placed on disk and mailed.)
I will take pictures for NO extra fee if you do not want them placed on disk, I can down size/emailed to you, this is
done as courtesy :)
If you suffer from ringworm outbreaks however this MUST be disclosed (is also on the waiver form you sign) prior to the visit
and NO interaction with any of the wolves will be allowed, we apologize for this but ringworm is zoonosis and is transferable
from human to animal, animal to human. If you suffer from this please do not book any visit during any outbreak.
Please contact us
for other pricing pertaining to your needs.

have their own minds, and though most people are well received by them, for those not well received ...I will as a professional
be able to tell immediately. And the animals feelings respected.

$550.00 for an hour and a half
add $70.00 for

of the wolf habitat) unless a professional photo fee is paid and session booked, which would encompass unobstructed shots

waivers and permission slips must be signed by parents of any children that come out here prior to any visit. For individuals
or families visiting as a member a liability waiver will be asked to be signed upon arrival to the ranch.
Teasing the animals will NOT be tolerated and is just cause for removal
from the premises. This includes, but is not limited to wildly running about, growling,
throwing objects, hissing etc.) The wolves here have shown no aggressive tendencies towards
young people or children, but all it takes is one bad incidence such as the above for wolves to think ALL children are aggressive
creatures to be feared and hated. You would not be happy if someone came along in the middle of the night into your yard,
and started pounding on YOUR window would you?

licensed through the Province, it is NOT a city owned Zoo; it is based on *private* property and thus retains
the right to refuse entry to any party/person.
