Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary depends on our amazing, dedicated volunteers to keep the sanctuary running and our animals happy and healthy. We would love to have your help too!

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please fill out the application form below. Not all tasks involve working closely with our animals, but they are all vital to us giving our animals the best lives possible, and continuing to save lives. No matter your position, you WILL be making a real difference! We will try to get back to you as soon as possible, but please have patience for a response.

All applicants must be at least 18 yrs. old to volunteer at the sanctuary.


Our volunteer application is here. You can fill it out and email it to us at Volunteeringwolvesofsaintfrancis.org, or print it and mail it to us (mailed applications may take longer for us to respond to).

Possible Volunteer Duties Include

  • Giving Tours: Our public tours cover the work our sanctuary does, the stories of our animals, and important issues related to wolves, wolfdogs, and conservation. We will train you extensively in all the necessary information and provide lots of support, plus you get to be around wolves!
  • Fundraising: As a small 501(c)(3) nonprofit, fundraising is vital to Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary’s successful operation. We especially need fundraising assistance over the next several years as we conduct our capital campaign for our Relocation project.
  • Maintenance: It takes a lot of work to keep our enclosures and facilities maintained and safe, and we are always looking for handymen and -women who can help us with repairs, upkeep, construction, or landscaping.
  • Administrative: Including office organization and filing, cleaning and stocking the gift shop, creating gift shop merchandise, cleaning and stocking the gift shop, and answering phones and emails.
  • Direct Animal Care: Including preparing food, feeding and watering, washing up bowls, and making enrichment.  Please Note: We do not allow volunteers to have direct contact with the animals.
