Welcome 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 rescued and retired exotic animals a safe haven, to educate people and enhance their knowledge of exotic and endangered species, and to encourage responsible pet ownership.

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!

Our 2014 Holiday Wish List is now available!  Your gifts are tax deductible and will brighten the days of the animals residents and aid their keepers who provide their daily care.  Thank you, and have a safe and happy Christmas season!
