Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary to break ground on new location in Navasota
The Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary is relocating from Montgomery County to Grimes County.
Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary will break ground on its new location Aug. 18, Executive Director Nicole Rogers said. Rogers said the sanctuary will remain at its current address at 2757 St. Beulah Chapel Road, Montgomery, for 11 months before moving its 12-member pack of wolves and wolf dogs to its new 15-acre location at 6731 Pavlock Road, Navasota, after construction finishes. Rogers said the sanctuary has raised 81% of the necessary funds for Phase 1 of the project at $344,180. The nonprofit sanctuary cares for rescued wolves and wolf dogs and provides information and services to the public, including Howl Night, where visitors can camp at the sanctuary and hear the wolves howl. 936-597-9653. www.saintfranciswolfsanctuary.org
