Tours are offered but the primary focus at the sanctuary is to keep animals as a top priority, not to host visitors. Many of Wolf Haven's inhabitants are housed out of sight and can be heard only through the rare, resounding howling that echoes from enclosure to enclosure.
Enjoy these portraits from a rare, photographic tour of Wolf Haven's publicly available guests.
