What you'll do

Meet wolves up close on a hike through the forest!

THIS EXPERIENCE IS FOR 18 YEARS OR OLDER ONLY; NO EXCEPTIONS.
Meet some our wolf dog ambassadors while visiting the Pacific Northwest! Just 1.5 hours North of Seattle, our wildlife refuge is nestled in 10 forested acres. We will introduce you to our mission and history with wolves and other exotic animals. Come enjoy Max and Kakoa, leash free, in their new 1/4 acre natural enclosure. Then walk through sun-dappled trails in our new 1 1/2 acre run with 7 of our 2-3 year old ambassadors in training. Old-growth trees tower overhead; the wolf dogs will lead you around their new open run, while our guide talks about wolves' habitat, behavior, & the myths and misconceptions surrounding this apex predator. Our new photo area will allow us to pause for photos and rest with the wolves. When we return to the refuge, you will see a few more beautiful animals, including sloths, cougars, foxes, and more! You will be able to touch, photograph and even howl with wolf dogs in this once-in-a-lifetime setting!

Ashley started with Predators of the Heart in 1998. Traveling with her father Dave from age 12 to 17. She had to switch to booking all of his programs from 17-29 years old. Ashley arranged accommodations, pricing, made cold calls to schools, churches and fairs, handled all correspondence only being able to travel on occasion. She got married at 20 years old, Ashley and her husband Aaron donated countless hours helping build enclosures, bottle feeding wolf pups, feed animals while Dave was on the road she helped in raising and caring for many animals. But her passion is having the opportunity to teach hundreds of people about how every animals plays a vital role in the web of life.

It was an amazing experience getting to spend time with these animals. At the location they’re providing a wonderful environment for all the creatures that live there. Seem to think deeply about their needs.

This is the third time I have come to have the experience. I highly recommend all visitors do the same, because it is always a different experience and they are constantly changing and improving the facility. What a warm, welcoming experience!

Can’t recommend this enough, by far the best Airbnb/tour experience I’ve had. Getting to meet the wolves was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Dave & his crew are doing great work educating the public and caring for the animals at this sanctuary. Go support them!
