Five rare red wolf pups were born this spring at a sanctuary in Tenino, Washington.

 Wolf Haven International is a nationally recognized wolf sanctuary that has rescued and provided a lifetime home for 200 displaced, captive-born animals since 1982.

Guided 50-minute walking visits offer guests a rare, close-up view of wolves. Wolf Haven provides a variety of educational programs, participates in multi-agency Species Survival Plan programs for critically endangered wolves and advocates for wolves in the wild.

Red wolves are very adaptive to different types of ecosystems and can live in a variety of areas such as forests, coastal prairies, and sometimes swamps.

They have a secretive nature and require adequate cover, so they prefer areas with brush, shrubs, or trees. The dens for the young are usually made in these areas, or in sandy knolls, hollow trees, or banks of nearby streams.
