The Speedwell Wolves, A Treasure Awaits
In the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch country, quietly secured on 20 plus acres of natural woodland, you will find the home of the Speedwell Wolves. For over 30 years the Darlington Family has offered refuge to Wolves who have found themselves without a place in the natural world. It has been over a hundred years since the last wild Wolf was known to exist in Pennsylvania.
Originally created as a private rescue, the Wolf Sanctuary of PA has grown into an educational facility. We are devoted to assuring the most comfortable and stimulating environments for our wolves.
Here at Wolf Sanctuary of PA wolves and wolf hybrids are given back their dignity. The Wolves of Speedwell hold a unique position as Ambassadors to the wild. It has been said that “the best wolf habitat resides in the human heart.” Perhaps it is also that the best habitat for our own wildness resides in the heart of the Wolf.
The Sanctuary currently provides food, shelter and veterinary care for over forty Wolves with no government or corporate assistance. Only, by your continued support and interest do the Wolves thrive.

Stop the unjustified killing and hunting of Montana’s wolves. Use science!
We have received a request from noted wolf researcher Jay Mallonee to post a link to his petition to stop the unjustified killing and hunting of Montana’s wolves. There is plenty of scientific research which proves this killing is more about fear than facts. The lovely wolves of the world are so misunderstood. His scientific study can be found here, we encourage all wolf lovers to read it. He has also put forth a petition to stop the Montana killings, please read the petition and if you agree, please sign it. – Thank you all, from the team at The Wolf Sanctuary of PA.
