Wolf Haven International

Founded in 1982, and located in Tenino, WA, Wolf Haven International  holds a mission to


…conserve and protect wolves and their habitat…by:

  • Providing sanctuary for captive-born, displaced wolves
  • Educating the public on the value of all wildlife
  • Promoting wolf restoration in historical ranges
  • Protecting our remaining wild wolves and their habitat

Wolf Haven partners with SPP by participating in regional conservation planning for Puget lowland prairies. Part of Wolf Haven’s sanctuary is on historical prairie habitat. SPP provides a variety of plants and human resources to work toward the ecological restoration of Wolf Haven’s prairie. Additionally, Wolf Haven regularly provides in-prison presentations through SPP’s science and sustainability lecture series.
