Wolf Haven shifts to the ‘Haven’ part of mission –
Reduces number of visitors at any one time


– “Wolf Haven works to shed ‘tourist attraction’ label”
“In recent years, the nonprofit’s nearly 50 acres of Mima Mounds prairie has taken on a bigger role as Wolf Haven’s focus has shifted to the ‘Haven’ part of its mission, serving as a permanent home to captive-born and displaced wolves.”

“About a year ago, Wolf Haven became the first wolf sanctuary to meet the rigorous standards of the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and become accredited.

As part of the process, Wolf Haven’s staff decided to cut operating hours and significantly reduce the number of people allowed in the sanctuary — a big change for the nonprofit that once attracted tourists with campouts and howl-ins.

Reservations are now required, and a maximum of 20 people are allowed in the sanctuary at a time. During a recent visit, just eight of the 52 animals at Wolf Haven were in enclosures that could be seen by the public,” by Lisa Pemberton, The Olympian.
