Black Pine Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit, volunteer organization that offers a variety of informative programs for all ages to meet, observe, and learn. Visitors will enjoy hearing the personal stories of the nearly 100 displaced, captive-raised exotic animals enjoying refuge for the REST of their lives. Animal residents found refuge here after being surrendered, abandoned, or confiscated, former pets and performers. The well-being of the animals always comes first at Black Pine, so visitors will enjoy an atmosphere of peaceful observation, where everyone respects the animals during their visit. Black Pine is not a zoo, and does not buy, sell, breed, trade, or use animals for entertainment purposes. Pathways are paved and accessible; parking is free! The Wolf Den Gifts & Things offers a wide variety of animal-themed gifts and souvenirs (free to shop), and all proceeds help fund the mission to help more animals in need. Picnics are welcomed during summer. Tours and other programs vary seasonally. Consult the web site or call for tour options, available year-round. Advanced registration is recommended to guarantee availability for some programs.
