Rescued Wolves  
Displaced, captive-born animals

Wolves go through a natural breeding cycle annually during this period. The sanctuary's rescued wolves have been partially altered, which allows them to go through typical mating behavior but not reproduce. Wolf Haven currently has 28 permanent rescued residents. Wolf Haven does not breed any of the rescued animals.

Critically Endangered Wolves 

Wolf Haven is a participant in two federally managed breeding programs for endangered wolves: one for the red wolf  (found only in the U.S.) and the other for the Mexican gray wolf (native to the Southwest and Mexico). Breeding recommendations for these special animals are made annually by participating Species Survival Plan managers and based on the program needs. Wolf Haven currently cares for 14 Mexican wolves and 18 red wolves.
