Wolf Haven International Earns Global Accreditation

Wolf Haven International is both humbled and honored by our recent accreditation from Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS), the only globally recognized organization providing standards for identifying legitimate animal sanctuaries. Wolf Haven is the first wolf sanctuary in the world to be GFAS accredited.

What does this mean? Achieving GFAS accreditation verifies that Wolf Haven meetWolf Haven 2015s the comprehensive and rigorous definition of a true sanctuary and provides humane and responsible care of the canids living here. We meet rigorous and peer-reviewed standards for operations, administration, and veterinary care. The accreditation status also provides a clear and trusted means for public, donors, and government agencies to recognize Wolf Haven International as an exceptional and fiscally responsible sanctuary.

As a sanctuary, Wolf Haven provides a safe, lifetime home where wolves are appreciated for who and what they are. The wolves living here receive exceptional care, quality food and progressive medical treatment.

Wolf Haven’s most recent rescue is Shali, an eight-year old female gray wolf from a zoo in Asheville, NC. She did not get along with two other wolves there and with limited options (many facilities are not interested in “middle-aged” wolves), Shali found refuge at Wolf Haven.
