Review for Wolf Haven International, Tenino, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

First arriving to Wolf Haven was magical, a beautiful little set of enclosures and a main shop in a homely, welcoming and rustic scene in Washington's best example of a mid-forest prairie. I was young, probably around 13 in my first tour and it was the most amazing experience I've ever had. Seeing the wolves in their sturdy enclosures and learning what it took to keep wolves was a lot to take in. The benefits of the sanctuary as opposed to keeping these wild animals as pets impressed itself upon my mind and to this day I feel I have a stronger connection with wolves than I every would have otherwise. At the end of the tour, our group began to mimic wolf howls and the entire 'pack' at wolf haven joined in. I've never heard anything so eerie and powerful, and it still brings tears to my eyes as I think of it. At the end of the tour I decided to browse the shop and was amazed at the array of wolf merchandise. Though I haven't been able to go back for a while, I still try to donate as much as I can through the sanctuary's 'Adopt a Wolf' program. They are always prompt with the delivery of the promised goods and I treasure the wolf photos and stories I have received over the years. I absolutely recommend visiting, and supporting Wolf Haven however you can. The staff are friendly, their work in education, conservation, and preserving the local prairie is of the utmost importance, and everything I have received from their stores both online and in person have excellent quality. A must-see, whether you are a wolf addict or simply curious.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add a wider range of online donation options and products for those of all wealth levels, from $1 trinkets to works of art worth much more.

So many people are initially introduced to Wolf Haven when they are young, like you were at 13. It's so rewarding to have an impact on someone, who then becomes a powerful advocate for wolves.Thank you for your message and ongoing support!
