Kids bought mom a special birthday gift. The opportunity to see and interact with the wolves at this facility.

Majority of the visit was spent with a mom and son wolf duo. Kakoa and Max.

Constant affection from these two wolves. Loved being rubbed and having photos taken.
Hosts were very professional and very obvious they loved being part of the foundation.

I cannot rationalize schedule departures from Lopez to Anecortes or why I can't reserve a space/time for my auto.
The computer reservation system is a fairly reliable approach. Too many cancellations. Inter Island ferries highly unreliable.
Staff very friendly and the ride always a joy when it's punctual.

Hard to believe that this magical place has been less than five miles away from me for 15+ years, and we never knew it. MAGICAL is really the best word! Ashley and her team are remarkable stewards of these animals and the land. The tour is so interesting and their love of these animals shows in every single corner of their property. Can’t wait to come back again and again!

I didn't know quite to expect. The experience sounded like a grammar school field trip but my wife had been interested so we went ahead with our plans. I'm so glad we did as it surpassed all my expectations.

This is a refuge where they care of their pack of wolves, exotic animals that were abandoned by their owners, and injured wildlife that cannot return to their habitat. The guides were informative, helpful, and made the two hours a breeze. An experience you'll treasure for many years.

Can’t begin to describe how amazing this was. We were able to go in enclosures with multiple wolves to see them and touch them. Also got to hear them howl. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable about all of the animals there and obviously cares very much about their well-being. Absolutely recommend.

I live 5 min from this place and finally went to see them at an open weekend. The smaller animals are a treat to see well looked after and happy playing around. When the wolves came out the are just like big dogs running around and happy to see people. You can tell they are very happy with Dave and the other volunteers there as they treat them like family.

Getting to interact is a once in a lifetime experience and one I would gladly pay double for.

We visited Predators of the Heart in mid-August. It was a really great and unique experience. We arrived on the beautiful property and started by watching an interesting video about the impact of wolves on the environment. We also got to hear a bit about the start of PotH and their recent successes. Thanks to these tours, they have been able to greatly expand and are constantly working on newer, bigger and better enclosures for their animals. They have a variety of animals that they rescued for different reasons, including sloths, an anteater, raccoons, a skunk, a porcupine, opossums, mountain lions, emu, coatimundi, exotic birds, and more. Due to regulations, you cannot pet these animals, but you do get very close to them and get to see many out of their enclosures.

Of course, the special moment is with the wolves. We were able to enter the enclosure with a pack of younger wolves (around 1 year old). It was amazing to be able to interact with the whole pack and see and learn about their various personalities. The wolves had an “escape route”, so if they weren’t feeling the humans, they could easily walk away. We were able to pet and love on the wolves, who seemed to really enjoy the interaction (especially rubs behind the ears). We then were brought into another beautiful, large enclosure with two of the older, large wolves. We were able to pet them and get some close-up photos with them. They were very happy and friendly, even rolling over and pawing us for belly rubs. It was incredible to be so close to and connect with these animals. We had plenty of time with all the animals on this small tour (only 3 people in addition to us).

All of the animals seemed every well taken care of and it was clear everyone had a true passion and love for each of the animals we met. This is a fantastic organization and anyone traveling through the area should reserve an encounter for a once in a lifetime experience (and to support a great cause).

I had an amazing time at Predators of the Heart. Dave and his team were absolutely wonderful, educating us about all the animals including (but not limited to) sloths, skunks, armadillos, kinkajous,emu, jaguars, kotamundi, marmosets and of course the stunning and gorgeous wolves. We met Max and Kakoa who just loved the belly rubs and were so patient with us as Dave's team took an abundance of photos on our phones for us. They truly care about these animals. This is a non-profit so all the fees paid by visitors go back to housing, feeding and looking after the animals. Truly a labor of love!

Dave is an amazing host who knows and loves his animals. He has more than just wolves- there are panthers, lynx, bob cats, owls, ground hogs. Any animal in need of help. It's a freely personal experience with these animals.

Everything about this place is wonderful. Each staff person is knowledgeable and they truly put the care of the animals first. And we had an amazing experience and interaction with wildlife! I got kisses from two different wolves! One did grab the back of my jacket to play. He easily could have pulled me down. We were warned about this and I was ready even though it still scared me. Completely loved every moment and would do it again!!! And bring family and friends.
