The 31-year old sanctuary to conserve and protect wolves, Wolf Haven International has been accredited by American Sanctuary Association. The facility near Tenino is one of only two wolf sanctuaries in the country with that endorsement.

The rigorous application process included a review of all aspects of the organization including financial stability, board oversight, educational materials, veterinary references, permits and licenses. There was an onsite inspection of Wolf Haven's facilities and thorough examination of its animal care procedures.

“We continually strive to give our resident animals the best care possible, and we are honored to merit ASA endorsement,” said Diane Gallegos, executive director of Wolf Haven International.
