Wolves & Wine 2019

Is it on your bucket list to visit the wolves at the McCleery Ranch in Montana and hear them howl?

Or perhaps, at long last, go on that safari to see the painted wolves of Africa?

You have the opportunity to win one, or both, of these adventures this year at Wolves & Wine 2019!

For the second year, Wolf Haven will offer a trip for two to our Bridger, Montana wolf sanctuary to see firsthand the famed “McCleery buffalo wolves”.

And this year, for the first time,  we have received a generous donation from Wilderness Safaris for a luxury safari adventure in Botswana, Africa.

Take a moment to see the difference Wilderness is making in eco-tourism – SEE VIDEO.

Come to Wolves & Wine prepared to bid for these and many other amazing items on September 28.

And if you cannot attend, you can still make a virtual donation that will be added to the evening’s total – DONATE
