Wolf Haven Welcomes Two New Residents – Nisqually Valley News

Wolf Haven International is now home to a record 65 wolves, wolf dogs and coyotes thanks to the addition of two new wolves, Mariah and Hodari.

Exploring Tumwater – JBLM In 10

Ever wonder what it’s like to live in Tumwater, Washington? JBLM (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) in 10 did, too. So we jumped in the car and took a trip to the petite, pioneering city to give you the inside scoop on what makes it unique.  Although Wolf Haven isn’t in Tumwater itself, it’s the next town over and was included in the video!

December World of Wolves – meet our new residents Hodari & Mariah

Welcome Two New Wolf Haven Residents: Hodari and Mariah
 
Many of you recall that Mexican gray wolf Gypsy’s (F907) lifelong companion, Diablo, passed away not long ago at the age of 17. Gypsy showed significant signs of mourning the loss of her friend and we immediately began looking for another wolf in the Species Survival Plan program. A new friend eventually arrived from the Endangered Wolf Center. His number is M1458 (house name Hodari) and he is one and a half years old.

Helping Those Who Can’t Help Themselves – FTE News Magazine

Every Fall, a Combined Fund Drive (CFD) takes place throughout Washington State. This workplace giving program, designed for active and retired public employees, promotes monthly automatic giving to individually selected local nonprofit organizations and charities. State and higher education employees are invited to give to the charity of their choice through payroll contribution and agency fundraising events.

FTE News Magazine, a publication for and about Washington State employees, offers participating nonprofits the opportunity to thank their donors and highlight the needs within their organization.

Here is the 2017 Wolf Haven Story.

We are grateful beyond measure to all those who support Wolf Haven International through the Combined Fund Drive, and thank FTE for helping us tell our story.
