About Us:

Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary is the only public refuge in Montana to house native animals that cannot be returned to the wild due to injury or habituation to humans.  We care for over 60 animals and birds, many placed here by Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks, including wolves, mountain lions, black bears, bison, elk, bobcat, fox, coyote, eagles, hawks, owls and many more.  The sanctuary offers visitors an unparalleled chance to learn about these and other animals by observing them at close range and through interpretive displays.

A great resource for Red Lodge! They save animals in need, and they take excellent care of them, always trying to expand to better suit their animal guests. The education there is great, the staff obviously cares deeply about the place, and they are, and have been, a great asset. It's a great stop on vacation, especially if you can nab a tour!

My husband and I had a wonderful time there!The facility is amazing and it's easy to see how much time and effort they put into their animals. Kara was our tour guide and she did an amazing job! She was so friendly, enthusiastic, and clearly educated about the work she's doing there. We loved it! Meeka the raccoon was my favorite animal, she was the sweetest thing! You have to go just to see her:)

It has bears, wolves, and lots of other animals to see. Good for an hour of entertaining the kids while waiting for other events around town.
