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.

At Speedwell Forge, a quiet haven just north of the town of Lititz, PA, the Darlington Family has offered refuge to gray wolves and wolf-dogs for over 40 years. Wolves have been plagued by myth and misinformation for centuries. This has led to conservation issues across the globe, but it has also led to wolves being improperly handled as household pets. At Wolf Sanctuary of PA, gray wolves and wolf-dogs are given back their dignity. We are devoted to assuring the highest quality of care and enrichment for our wolves. Currently the sanctuary is home to over 50 gray wolves and wolf-dogs. Through guided tours we also seek to dispel some of the common myths about wolves and provide a more accurate and respectful image of this keystone species.
