Wolf Haven News
A new voice can be heard at Wolf Haven. Layla, a three-year old female, is an F1 wolfdog, or first generation, meaning that 50% of her DNA comes from a pure wolf (in this case her mother) and 50% from a domestic dog (her dad, a Malamute).
At Wolf Haven International, the staff is tasked with taking care of dozens of wolves and other wild canines. Although much of the job is about stayingout of the animal’s way.
“We are simply guests in the animal’s home, and it’s better for wolves to be left alone so that they can live as a wolf,” said Kim Young, the haven’s communications director.
It’s the holiday season, when many of us will be getting together with family and friends. A big part of holiday traditions are the wonderful meals we share. It’s no different for the resident wolves at the sanctuary when they get their own turkey dinners .
As part of our obligation as a sanctuary, Wolf Haven commits to treating all wolves or wolfdogs who find refuge here with compassion, respect, and dignity from the day they arrive until their end of days. There is even a cemetery onsite for residents who have passed on. We encourage guests to visit the memorial cemetery when they are visiting Wolf Haven and share a requiem for a friend.
