A Treasure Awaits

The Wolves of Speedwell

In the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country, quietly secured on 80 plus acres of natural woodland, you will find the home of the Wolves of Speedwell.

For 40 years, the Darlington Family has offered refuge to gray wolves and wolf-dogs. Originally created as a private rescue, Wolf Sanctuary of PA has grown into an educational facility. We are devoted to assuring the highest quality of care and enrichment for our wolves. Here at Wolf Sanctuary of PA, wolves and wolf-dogs are given back their dignity.

Watonie Needs Your Help

Our beautiful girl is in trouble. Just a few weeks ago we noticed that she had a minor limp for a few short days, and then it quickly went away leading us to believe that it had healed. Soon after, she was seen hunched and shaking while walking around her enclosure. We rushed her to emergency and it was determined that she had torn ACLs and an infected ovarian cyst. She has had surgery to remove the cysts and is soon scheduled for surgery to fix her ACL’s. These surgeries will not be cheap. Please help us give our girl a fighting chance. Every little bit helps.
