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 nearly 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.
