Last wolf in pack finds a home

Shy Ione in her secluded enclosure 
On February 13, the last surviving member of the Ruby Creek pack arrived at her new home at Wolf Haven. Captured by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife because she had become too habituated to domestic dogs, livestock and humans, our sanctuary staff named her Ione after the community where she had been living near a rancher's home.

She is only the second wolf to be transferred from the wild to live in the sanctuary in our 33 year history. Ione (pronounced Eye-own) appears to be setting in with her new companion, wolfdog Luca. We are grateful to the community of Ione and all who have supported this effort to give her another lease on life.
