Wolf Haven International, Tenino

4.2
A sanctuary for captive-born animals, Wolf Haven International offers educational programs and guided visits. This hands-off sanctuary provides shelter without socializing with the wolves--this means that there's no physical contact between the animals and visitors or caretakers. Visits are by reservation only and include a tour of the public section, where you'll potentially be able to see several wolfs in a natural and serene environment. Please visit the website to learn about booking options and sanctuary etiquette.

  • Amazing experience. Wasn't expecting to see the wolves so close! 50 minute guided tour went by WAY too fast, but was informative and entertaining. Each wolf has a story, and I could have listened to them all. Was lucky enough to hear a howl during my visit, and that alone was worth the trip. Wow. Breathtaking. I would suggest leaving extra time for the drive (my party was 10 minutes late for our tour and they kindly let us join anyway). Easy to find thanks to good signage.
  • This place is great! If you go with your kids please know that the guided tour is very informative, so they may get bored if they are too little. We went with my three year old and she was fine since she saw all the wolfs! Please visit them, they do an amazing job helping these animals.
  • Wolf Haven International is so very special. A visit to the sanctuary will touch your heart as well as teach you about wolf conservation. A walk through their prairie is also delightful. They hold one fundraiser annually that is a wonderful way to spend an evening and support them too. Visit their webpage to participate in an event or plan a sanctuary visit.
  • Loved the guided tour, walking paths nearby, and the gift shop. Got my daughter a membership and adopted a wolf for her to sponsor this year. Very knowledgeable staff.
  • Great experience, got to hear the wolves howl. My daughter loves wolves and this was the highlight of her 6th birthday. The guides were super friendly and knowledgeable, and the gift shop and walking trails were perfect.
