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

REALLY interested in being apart of the live auction, but cannot make the trip to Washington State? Contact us to see how you might still be able to participate.

Tickets on sale BUT GOING FAST – PURCHASE TICKET HERE or call 360.264.4695 x210.

It is going to be a GREAT night, for the wolves.

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.

Wolf Haven welcomes newest resident – wolfdog Layla – The Daily Chronicle

The newest resident at the Wolf Haven International sanctuary in Tenino used to only roam as far as the backyard cable connected to her collar would let her go. Layla, a first-generation wolfdog — her mother was a wolf and her father a Malamute — recently arrived at Wolf Haven by way of an animal shelter in Thurston County.
