For the REST of their lives.

We invite you to explore our website and appreciate your support!

Our Mission

Black Pine Animal Sanctuary exists to give displaced, captive-raised exotic animals refuge for the REST of their lives, and to educate people about responsible animal care and conservation.  

On any given day, we care for over 100 big and small cats, bears, canines, primates, birds, reptiles and other former pets and retired performers.

Lessons Shared

We want to plant a seed of awareness that can positively impact the conservation and preservation of exotic and endangered species.

We believe that when you experience these animals' personal stories, you can become better informed about how you will share this world with animals.

Visit Us

Black Pine is a "true sanctuary," so the animals' needs always come first.

Tours of the sanctuary bring visitors, students, educators, and others up close and personal with members of our knowledgeable, friendly staff to learn about the animals and our mission.  Your experience is sure to be extraordinary and memorable!

The sanctuary is open for walk-in visitation seven days a week through Labor Day.  Visit Saturdays and Sundays between 10:00 and 3:00 and enjoy a guided tour beginning at 11:00 a.m. at no added charge.  Guided feeding tours begin at 3:00 p.m. on weekends, and close out the day.  Weekday visitation is from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with guided tours beginning at 11:00 and 3:00.  For more information, click here!
