White Wolf Sanctuary: Haven for Rescued Arctic Wolves

Lois and Wolf


The howling is the first thing you notice at the end of the two-mile dirt road up to White Wolf Sanctuary, where 10 arctic wolves that roam these 55 fenced acres welcome visitors with an unearthly chorus. Director Lois Tulleners rescued these snow-white creatures from fur farms, failing zoos, and abusive or neglectful private owners, and brought them to this safe haven inside a national forest 10 miles from the central Oregon coast. Lois preps visitors with hot coffee and a brief show-and-tell, then leads a walking tour of the grounds. She goes inside the fence to bond with her favorite wolves (she has named them all), and they affectionately rub against her and lick her hands and face. She brings the friendliest ones right to the fence so visitors can touch their fur. Lois has a Facebook page and website but always needs volunteers and donations to help feed and care for the wolves (legally permitted roadkill and hunter-donated deer and elk meat are the wolves’ mainstay, but these are often in short supply). Lois particularly needs a webmaster (can work remotely) and a resident caretaker. Support Lois’ work on behalf of these magnificent wild creatures: 541-528-3588
