For almost four decades, the U.S. and Mexican governments have worked together to save the Mexican wolf from extinction. In 1994, Wolf Haven was selected to participate in the Mexican Wolf Species Survival Plan.

A Tale of Two Sanctuaries: Part One – Wolf Haven – Nisqually Valley News

The gray wolves are majestic and wary. They bask in the sunshine or sit among the trees, watching. They are kept in compatible pairs and have very little human interaction.

In 1982, the sanctuary that was to eventually become Wolf Haven International was founded in Tenino, Washington. A beacon for wolf advocacy, Wolf Haven International also provides a lifetime home for displaced and captive born wolves and promotes wolf restoration in historical ranges.

July World of Wolves – Summer shedding season

Fence growing fur?

As the season changed from spring to summer, so did the wolves’ appearance. Here at Wolf Haven, we are cycling through another lengthy season of shedding, and all the animals’ undercoats are falling off, tuft by tuft.

Wolf Haven’s Summer Event

Our premiere summer event, A Midsummer’s Night, offers guests the opportunity to see wolves, hear them howl, learn their stories, eat delicious food, walk through native prairie, camp overnight – and repeat in the morning. Twenty guests have an incredible opportunity to engage in a deeper way with our organization and support our mission.

A Midsummer’s Night reflects the heart of what it means to be a sanctuary. As an accredited sanctuary, our philosophy is that the animals always come first. The resident animals of Wolf Haven are given every opportunity to behave as naturally as possible in a protective environment.  By keeping the group small, our guests can have a deeper, more intimate experience with our sanctuary, wolves, animal care staff and prairie – yet this will seem routine to our resident animals.
