Want to Pet Some Friendly Wolves? Head Down to Washington!

 Wolves are by and large predatory creatures, particularly those that call the wild their home. However, the status quo has largely shifted over the past decades, and as human populations expand, habitable areas for wolves and similar wild species have either been converted into human settlements or been severely degraded.

The Predators of the Heart Sanctuary in Washington state, located between Seattle and Vancouver, does its best to create a safe space for wolves and other predatory species who have truly been left with no viable place to live out the rest of their lives. Despite their aggressive nature, these wolves enjoy the company of people and are truly the friendliest wolves you’ll ever meet. You can enjoy your very own Airbnb Wolf Encounter!  

Visitors to the woods within the sanctuary are given free rein to pet and play with these majestic beings. All bookings have to be made in advance, but many consider it well worth it, as this sanctuary not only offers comradely wolves but other rescued creatures, both predator and prey. The playful attitude of the wolves, however, is what makes for some truly fun photos. That said, there is a requirement that all people playing with the wolves be 18 or above.
