Wolf Haven by Diane Mivelli

Why they do it is unclear. When they do it is unpredictable. Once one resident at Wolf Haven International begins howling, the others soon join in. The singular occasion can last mere minutes, yet it will live on in the memory of any visitor.

July World of Wolves – Mexican gray wolf pups!

We were very excited when pups were born to first-time parents F1422 (Vida) and M1360 (Kochi) in April. These two wolves are very genetically valuable to the healthy preservation of the species; in fact, this new family is considered the most genetically valuable group in the entire captive Mexican wolf population!

Sustainability in Prisons Project – visiting Wolf Haven’s prairie

This is a wonderful blog post written about The Evergreen State College and WA State Department of Corrections Sustainability in Prisons Project.  Inmate technicians were able to see first-hand the rare prairie that they are helping to restore. So many groups in the Pacific Northwest are dedicated to preserving and restoring our disappearing native prairies and we at Wolf Haven are grateful to all of them.

May World of Wolves – T & Angel, a Good Match

One of the most beautiful things about life at the sanctuary is watching the transformation of our wolves as they settle into their new lives. Even more beautiful is watching a new “friendship” blossom and grow.
