Wolf Haven volunteers help to create a better world for wolves and people in many ways. Just as the wolf pack depends upon one another for survival, Wolf Haven depends on volunteers to help us accomplish our goals.

Here are some of many activities our volunteers are involved with that support our mission, “to conserve and protect wolves and their habitat”.
