About

Wolf Haven International has rescued and provided sanctuary for displaced captive-born wolves since 1982. Wolf Haven works for wolf conservation through education, conservation, outreach & activism.

Wolf Haven International is a 501(c)3 organization that has worked for wolf conservation since 1982. Our mission is threefold: provide sanctuary for displaced, captive born wolves; offer education to groups of all ages, teaching about wolves and the value of all wildlife; and promote the preservation and restoration of wolves, focusing on the critically endangered red and Mexican gray wolves.

Our sanctuary and education department welcome thousands of visitors each year. By combining education and the opportunity to actually see wolves, along with outdoor activities, such as eco-scavenger hunts, interpretive games, camping and prairie walks, we are able to give our visitors a better understanding of wildlife while inspiring them to walk, play, observe and participate in nature.

Learning to live with wolves is a topic we are dedicated to exploring. We were instrumental in developing "Living with Carnivores," an educational series of presentations and literature devoted to educating the public on how to co-exist with large carnivores—an important topic in today's world as we expand our human borders and continue to encroach on theirs.

Nearly 200 wolves have lived at Wolf Haven, where they are treated with dignity, respect and compassion. We are proud participants in two Species Survival Plan (SSP) programs, dedicated to the continued survival of the endangered Mexican gray wolf and red wolf.

1. Wolves are a necessary and important part of a balanced ecosystem

2. Through education, the public can learn to live with apex preditors.

3. Wolves should not be bred for the pet trade.
