When I heard that there’s an island out there full of friendly wolves, my first words were, “Take me there now!” Oh my, I could be a woman who runs with the wolves!
As I´m known for being a wild woman living life as an adventure. I have a fascination for wolves and their wildish nature.
It is believed that wolves have been around for around 300,000 years. Every domesticated dog hails from the majestic Mexican Grey Wolf which might explain the inner woolfie that every dog seems to have within them. I know Willy, my puppaboy has a bit of the wild in him.
So, the idea of a wolf sanctuary on Anacortes, an island near Seattle, Washington, that takes care of wolves in need, made my heart sing!
The sanctuary is a non-profit organisation that aims to give wild animals that can’t be reintroduced into a wild, a place to call home. The wolves share their wild woods with cougars, bobcats, skunks and foxes, to name a few.
The founders and workers aim to help children and adults to develop animal appreciation, affection, compassion and respect for all wildlife. To open the eyes of their hearts to see that all nature is interconnected.
While wolves in the wild pose a danger to humans in that there is a chance they might attack, life is very different at The Predators of the Heart Sanctuary, where wolves in need have been given a home to roam around 10 acres of lush, wild countryside next to the ocean.
Have you ever wanted to feel just how furry a wolf´s coat is? Yes, visitors can get up close and personal with the wolves on a two-hour tour. If you´re lucky, you might even be able to howl at the moon together, too.
What a wildly wonderful experience to have. Visiting the wolves at the Predators of the Heart Sanctuary is now right at the top of my bucket list.
