Review for Wolf Haven International, Tenino, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have felt deeply connected to wolves since I was a child. I actually believed I was part wolf and that one of my Ukrainian grandmothers had 'biblical knowledge' of a wolf in the Carpathian Mountains. As I grew older, I came to honor wolves as something distinct yet related to humans. It was with this history that I first was exposed to Wolf Haven during a group event that I attended at a nearby State Park. I was initially hesitant to visit the Haven, somehow certain that I would abhor seeing wolves in captivity. However, my experience was far different. I was so impressed at how well the wolves were cared for, with the respect that they were offered, and the great measures taken to continue their 'wolfness'. I made a commitment to support the wolves at Wolf Haven and expose as many other people to the sanctuary as possible. Wolves are our link to our own wild past and they are our bridge to civilization, culture, and family values. We learned much from the wolf in our early history and it behooves to continue to honor our debt.

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

I wish it was nearer to me so that I could volunteer and visit more often but, otherwise, I think they're doing a marvelous job.

We wish you lived closer to us too Laura! What a great volunteer you would be; however, you sound like an ideal advocate for wolves and other wildlife.
