Help! Our wolf pups need a name!

Help! Our wolf pups need a name!

You can help us in choosing names for our new wolf pups – and win one of three Wolf Centre memberships. Do you know any nice names starting with the letter “O”? The contest runs until mid of October 2014 !

Four wolf puppies were born in May this year, unfortunately only one of them survived, most likely a male. For every litter the names need to start with the same letter, and this year it’s the letter “O”.

Help us name the puppy by submitting a name suggestion for one of our wolf pups through this online form.


Every person can submit only ONE name in this online part. If you visit the wolf centre in person, you can submit another name (and get a second chance to win).

Mid of October 2014 Haliburton Forest staff will select a name from all submissions. All people who submitted one of the selected names will be e


ntered into a draw to win one of three adult wolf centre memberships. The membership package contains:

  • 12 months of unlimited wolf centre access for one adult
  • Wolf centre poster
  • One Wolf magazine
  • 10% off all merchandise at the Wolf Centre

Update: The naming contest is now closed and the one surviving pup got named “Onyx”. See this blog post for more details. !
