Wolf Haven International is a nationally recognized wolf sanctuary that has rescued and provided a lifetime home for over 180 displaced, captive-born animals since 1982. Guided walking tours offer visitors a rare, close-up view of wolves. Wolf Haven provides a variety of educational programs, participates in multi-agency Species Survival Plan programs for critically endangered wolves and advocates for wolves in the wild. Visitors can also follow a walking trail through beautiful native Mima Mound prairie and enjoy the native flowers, birds, butterflies that can be found there.
Guided tours are approximately 50 minutes and cover a variety of educational information about wolves, including biology, their role in a healthy ecosystem and recovery programs. Biographical information on sanctuary residents is also provided by tour guides. There is typically only one tour group in the sanctuary each hour, and the group remains together as a “pack”. The tour moves at a leisurely stroll and visitors are on their feet throughout. Benches are located along the tour route for those who might need a rest. The tour route is flat and wheelchair or stroller accessible – however be aware that it is a gravel path. Days & hours of admission vary widely depending on time of year, so please check the website or call and make sure that Wolf Haven is open prior to your visit.
There are many ways to get involved and support us, including:
- Planned Giving
Volunteers generously give their time, talent and support to Wolf Haven International. We simply could not successfully continue to focus on our mission without their help. Volunteers help to increase understanding, appreciation, and conservation of wolves, wildlife and South Sound prairie. They serve as ambassadors in the community, promoting Wolf Haven, wolves and native prairie species. If you have a desire to help, Wolf Haven will make good use of your time and talent. (Volunteers must be 17 years or older.)
