It's an amazing animal experience for the whole family!

Did you know that Wolf Haven is accredited by both the American Sanctuary Association (ASA) AND the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS)? That is pretty impressive!

Wolf Haven are open for guided walking tours, where visitors can enjoy a rare, close-up view of these beautiful wolves. Kids, keep an eye open, as you may even hear them howl!

Scheduled visits are 50 minutes long and all families who visit have the potential to see up to ten wolves and wolfdogs as you stop with a guide at enclosures along the public route.  

There are gray wolves, rare Mexican gray wolves, endangered red wolves and coyotes for you to see.

Wolf Haven is located on 82 acres, so a wonderful day out in nature too.  During your visit, you are welcome to take a self-guided stroll through beautiful mounded prairie, taking your time and just enjoying your surroundings. 

During the spring the prairie is covered with colourful, native wildflowers, so make sure you take your camera!

There is interpretive signage along the trail which describes prairie flora and fauna, which ensure kids have a fascinating learning experience too.
