These contact numbers are our personal phones, so best to call after 5:30 PM, if not leave a message and include a phone number to reach you in the evening.

Tours last one hour. Things to bring include a camera and appropriate clothing. Though not required, you may bring treats which will be used to pose our animals for photos with you. Treats may include meat or dairy products, such as cheese ends or cut cheese (no cheese wrapped in plastic), chicken wings, legs or feet, cut beef such as stew meat or lunch meats. Just about anything from the meat department from your local grocery story is fine. Do not cook food or remove bones. Do not bring any 'dog treats' from a pet store.
Only wear clothes you do not mind getting dirty should you wish to go inside the enclosure. If you intend to enter the enclosure, do not wear any real or imitation fur, down jackets, or any apparel that has dangling attachments (unless you do not mind donating it). Also, no loose fitting clothing that's easy to grab onto. Open toed footwear and heels are not allowed inside the pens. If you come in the winter, dress warmly as it is often very windy here.
Children under ten (10) years of age may observe but will not be able to enter the main canine enclosure. They will be able to interact in the yard behind the house with certain animals, including Samson, Takoda, Sierra, Bandit and Kotori. Adults are responsible for the behavior of children they bring and are expected to keep them close by at all times. No running and/or screaming/loud noises are allowed inside the pens or yard behind the house. Adults entering the enclosure must sign a hold harmless release agreement. Anyone under 18 years of age must have a parent or legal guardian present to sign a release on their behalf.
Upon arrival, do not park in driveway. Instead, pull over to the left and drive to the grass lot to park.
While we do not charge a specific fee, we do request a minimum donation of $20 per adult and $10 per child under thirteen to help with our costs for feeding and maintaining our our animals & facility. We accept credit cards, cash or check. Howling Woods Farm is a non-profit public charity, and unlike most public charities our staff, officers and directors receive no salary.
Tours available in American sign language upon request.
