If you are a wolf lover then we have great news for you. There is a sanctuary called Predators of the Heart Sanctuary which will let you wolf lovers have the awesome 2 hours of your life with their Wolf Encounter Experience. The sanctuary is located in the state of Washington near Seattle and is right next to the Canadian border in Vancouver.

For those who love the idea of meeting with wolves, you can now get a great tour in the wilds with the wolves held at the Predators of the Heart Sanctuary located in the state of Washington.
The wolves there are really friendly. Still, they need to have collars in their necks when they are to pose for photos with tourists.
Visitors there can not only pet them but also scratch their bellies too.
This animal reuse and the preservation sanctuary only keep the wolves there which do not have any place to live their lives.
According to the professor of Arizona State University named Wyne, most of the wolves do not act that friendly as the ones that live in their sanctuary. Still, with patience and a little hard skill, these wild animals can be raised in a manner where they can act friendly towards humans.
A professor says, “People still need to have some due diligence before they take the word of sanctuary that their animals are friendly.”
Wyne also said that wolves only do OK in the regions of the world where the humans are in sparse such as Canada, Siberia, and Alaska.
As for the other areas of the world where there is lots of human population, wolves are currently in dire situations and they need to have protection from the people.
This wolves’ sanctuary lies in the middle of Seattle and Vancouver.
Still, this does not mean that anyone can simply drop by at the sanctuary to meet with these wolves. A visitor needs to book a guided tour first with these wolves through the service of Airbnb for about 200 dollars per visitor. The sanctuary arranges 2 hours each day for 6 days per week with Sunday being off. There is also a big waiting list so one needs to plan this crazy one of a kind trip with careful planning.
One should also know that there are not only wolves that live here but this sanctuary is also home to the cougars, foxes, birds of prey and reptiles.
One more thing you should remember is that just like driving, petting the wolves is an activity that I for 18+ visitors. There acres strict rules about this stipulation and one needs to be at least 18 years of age for petting the wolves.
One needs to book in advance for this once in a life time wolf experience.
For full disclosure, this sanctuary ahs also had a few of the safety incidents a very long time ago. In one of the cases, one of the hikers there lost his dog’s life when it ventured inside the private area of the sanctuary. Also, once a wolf escaped form its enclosure and went inside the property of another native of the island.
The Predators of the Heart Sanctuary was opened first back in 1998 and currently covers the area of 10 acres. This NGO maintains the very strict standard regarding the care of the animals they are protecting.

One spokesperson of the sanctuary said, “Our goal here is to teach the children about the wildlife. This is not to only teach them but teach them with an approach that leads to affection, compassion, respect and appreciation for these majestic creatures.”
“Our main goal here is to develop the concern and care for these animals. Our purpose is to help open their eyes of hearts for seeing that all of the nature is connected with each other and realize that if we are apart from it, we cannot survive. We are also serving as the sanctuary that is serving the animals that cannot be reintroduced in their wild habitants and need a safe environment for living their remaining lives.”
