Luca and Ione
Ione settles in

On February 12, 2015, Wolf Haven did something very unusual  - we accepted a wild wolf into our sanctuary. This wolf had become too habituated and comfortable around domestic animals and people. All of the other animals living here (with the exception of two coyotes who were orphaned as pups), were born in captivity. This was a gamble for everyone involved: Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Wolf Haven, the community where the wolf lived (town of Ione) and the wolf herself. Now, nearly three months later, we can state that she seems to have adjusted to her new life. Helping her become acclimated was her companion, Luca, a wolfdog rescued from the fur trade.  Read Ione's Story . 

Evolution of a sanctuary 
Beginning June 1, guests will be able to reserve their sanctuary visit through our new online reservation system. This change will more fully align Wolf Haven with best practices as a sanctuary.  Wolf Haven achieved American Sanctuary Association (ASA) accreditation a couple of years ago and we continue to strive for only the highest level of care for our residents as we work toward accreditation through the Global Federation of Sanctuaries (GFAS).  Read more about Wolf Haven's evolution .
