WWS houses and cares for 10 Arctic wolves. Most of these wolves were rescued from abusive or unwanted situations. Please demonstrate your involvement and express your appreciation for these endangered species by participating in our adoption program. You may adopt one wolf or entire packs. These wolves were all captive-born and come from different locations throughout the country, and now have sanctuary for life.
Many of these amazing animals would be deceased or still be suffering if it were not for the efforts of our staff, sponsors and fellow wolf colleagues.Wolves who lived out their lives at WWS still have sponsors who honor them. Any donations made in their honor is equally divided between our resident wolves. Click here to honor our former residents.

Malina, an Arctic female is still shy, but beginning to get her "big girl paws". Born April 16, 2013, this precious little soul has touched all of our hearts. Malina is an Inuit name and is so suitable to this little girl. She often hides behind her sister, but is certainly brave enough to sleep with one of us whomever is on duty.
Malina's sister is named Nukka (pronounced with a long "u"). At this time, Nukka is the alpha, but that situation can always change. Nukka is so sweet and friendly. Also born April 16, 2013, this little lady struts around and is a bit larger than Malina. Her appetite is amazing and of course, we feed our wolves as much as they want. There can't be a bigger thrill than sleeping with two wolves and being awakened by gentle kisses on the lips. Nukka is the kisser and loves her belly rubs.
Archidamus was rescued from a rescue. Many thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Pluard. This handsome boy has given the sanctuary a new joy. He had never been off his tether until now. Archidamus' first and only mate is Tamahawk, our 6-year-old female. Both were alone and are now enjoying life together. Updates will follow as we learn more about our new arrival.
HOPE was brought to us from Wolf Woods Ranch in Minnesota, and originally a new mate for Nepenthe. With Nepenthes’ passing Hope is now bonding with Journey, and we fondly called the two of them our “Golden Girls”. She is 14 years of age, with a thick long coat of white fur and a love for hotdog treats.
A true lady, Journey is full of grace and beauty. Born May 3rd, 2000, Journey is turning 13 in the springtime. Mate and sister to ODOT, she loved to gain his affection by pressing up against him and licking his face. Though she may not be the most outgoing wolf around new visitors, Journey won’t bother to hide away. She instead prefers to spread out in the grass, rain or shine, watching everyone with her regal golden eyes.
The ‘Party Girl’ of the White Wolf Sanctuary, Tamahawk is energetic and feisty. While she’s resided in Texas, California and Idaho, Tamahawk found a permanent home in Oregon at our sanctuary on April 5th, 2010. Born May 1st, 2007, Tamahawk is turning 6 years old this spring. Though the smallest of the wolves here at the sanctuary, don’t be fooled by her size! Tamahawk makes up for her petite build by a tenacious attitude and overwhelming confidence. When paired with a mate, it’s our Party Girl who is the alpha in the relationship!
Tehalin may be a big boy, but he has the sweetest demeanor! Paired with his sister Nike in the enclosures, Tehalin – meaning ‘beautiful spirit’ – came to us from Nevada with his three other siblings: Nike, Sakarri, and Modoc. Born April 27th, 2007, Tehalin and his siblings are turning 6 years old this spring. While able to hold his own with his litter mates, this lover boy melts at the touch of a staff member or visitor. So don’t be surprised when you see this guy turn on the puppy eyes, as Tehalin will do anything for some attention and a good scratch on the chin!
Sleek and graceful, Nike can be identified by her lean form. Named for the Goddess of Victory, Nike is the picture of athleticism. Coming to us with her three siblings, Nike is also turning 6 this spring, yet she maintains a puppy’s energy and will race to meet you at the fence as you approach. Paired with her brother Tehalin, Nike makes up for the size difference by outrunning him to every location. She loves to approach guests, and will often use the fence as a means of stretching out to get to the visitors height. Be warned if leaning too close to the fence though…Nike loves to lay on the wolf kisses!
The largest of the four siblings, Modoc is named in honor of the Modoc Tribe from Klamath Falls, Oregon. Shy and cautious, Modoc keeps his distance yet allows visitors to admire his magnificent form and handsome eyes. While timid with new visitors, he trusts and loves his sister and mate Sakarri, often playing long games of hide-and-seek between the trees of each enclosure. Modoc loves to lean his body weight against White Wolf Sanctuary’s director, Lois, in hopes to draw out every moment of love and attention.
With a name meaning ‘Sweet’ in Inuit, Sakarri certainly fits her title. A lover to the core, Sakarri will forgo food until she gets an adequate amount of attention. Paired with her brother Modoc, Sakarri loves to play and lounge with her mate – unless there is affection to be had from a visitor, that is! She can be found sunbathing on her picnic table or rubbing up on the fence for a scratching. Sakarri quickly wins the hearts of the White Wolf Sanctuary guests with her beauty and her sweet-as-honey personality.
Our newest addition that came from Montana. We call him our gentle giant and he lives up to his name. Goliath is a nine year old pure Tundra wolf. He had a long trip to arrive at the Sanctuary but after a long drive through ice, snow, and wind, he arrived safe and sound at the Sanctuary. Goliath jumped out of his crate, picked up a food bowl which was prepared for him and pranced around the habitat as if he knew he was at his permanent home. His now partner, Hope, has changed to a happier wolf than she has ever been. Seeing the two of them run together, sleep together and greet our staff is such a joy. These two wolves needed a mate and they seem to be totally thrilled to have each other. Many thanks to Triple D Game Farm for donating such a wonderful wolf.
