welcome

 Our goal is to educate children about wildlife, not only to teach the facts about the animals, but to use an approach that leads to an appreciation, affection, compassion and respect for these  living creatures - to make it clear that an animal's value is not determined by its similarity or services to humans.

Please take time to look around  and if you have any questions please contact me,

Our Sanctuary

 

Predators of the Heart is the most diverse exotic animal refuge sanctuary of its kind in the State of Washington.

We are dedicated to helping all species of wild animals who, for various reasons, find themselves without a place to live out their lives. Many of our tenants are victims of divorce, foreclosure, financial hardship or were purchased by people who were ill-prepared for the specialized care that most of these animals require. We are an animal rescue and preservation establishment, sanctuary.
In addition to housing unwanted exotic species, we pride ourselves in educating the public about responsible animal ownership. Our ambassador animals attend numerous public events every year, and each one has its own story to tell and its own lessons to teach. While each animal has its own unique, sometimes tragic story, they share a common trait: they were all facing an uncertain future and possible death sentence before being adopted by our facility.

 

Our Place

Our 10 acres wildlife preserve is located in the forest lands of fildigo Island, Our 17 wolfdogs share the compound with cougars. bobcats, links, hawks owls, vultures, skunks, opos- sums, armadillos, and a host of exotic reptiles all used in the Predators of the Heart wildlife show. We re constantly striving to provide a safe clean environment our weather is very mild and wet most of the year with cold light snow most winters

 

 

 

 

 

 

Client Reviews

 


  • "Wow! What a show!

    The students and staff join me in thanking you for the very interesting and entertaining assemblies. You can be sure that we will recommend you to others. The students we enthralled with the wild animals and your elaborate presentation of them. They especially liked the opportunity to have a chance to touch the alligator and see the snapping turtle up close. The staff loved showing off their bravery when you draped large pythons and boa constrictors around them. We really appreciate the time you took to set up the lights, music, multi-media and live animals in order to present it all to our student."
