Wolf Sanctuary Open House Oct. 4

Published 09/03/2014


MONTGOMERY, Texas - Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary (SFWS) will hold its ninth annual “Open Day and Festival of the Wolves” event at the sanctuary on Saturday, October 4th, 2014 from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.

Visitors will have the opportunity to observe and learn about wolves and wolfdogs, and may even get to meet and have a picture taken with one of the sanctuary’s ambassador wolfdogs! There will also be games, face painting, door prizes, a silent auction, food and snacks, a bake sale, and the best lemonade in the county.

“Open Day is our most important fundraiser of the year”, said Jean LeFevre, the founder of SFWS. “We love to share our beautiful animals with the people who come to visit, and hope they will be inspired to donate generously.” There is a requested minimum donation of $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for children to attend Open Day, but any amount donated beyond the minimum will be greatly appreciated.

Last year’s Open Day drew a record turnout, and the sanctuary is hoping for even more visitors in 2014. A successful Open Day this year is especially important, says sanctuary president Kathy Hensarling, because with the support of the LeFevre family, SFWS plans to move to a new location in the Montgomery area within the next several years. “It’s important for us to have the flexibility to grow and succeed while developing greater long-term sustainability,” Hensarling explained. “Moving will help Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary realize its full potential.”

SFWS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity in Montgomery, Texas which is dedicated to rescuing and providing an exceptional, loving home to non-releasable wolves and wolfdogs, and to educating the public about these animals.
