About this activity

Black Pine Animal Sanctuary is a beautiful and relaxing experience for families to come and view rescued “performers” and “pets”. 

Not only can children understand about animals, their habitats, and traits, but they can also understand WHY the animals are here - and how treatment of animals by humans is not always the best, and we need to care and love the animals on this planet. 

A truly invaluable lesson for any child. 

The sanctuary is home to beautiful lions, leopards, bears, birds, reptiles....there are over 80 displaced animals to enjoy. 

There are over 18 acres of land to be enjoyed but it is worth noting they have strict rules on running, jumping, climbing....as a sanctuary they need to think of the animals so you must be on your best behavior! 

Imagine coming face to face with a mighty, grand lion - or hearing the snap of an alligators jaws! But with each animal, the kids can learn not just facts about what they eat, but their name, their individual likes and dislikes.

These animals are species difficult to re-home so they are here for the rest of their lives living happily and loving their new life. 

Each animal has his or her own story, and its a beautiful way to understand the individuality of each and every creature.

Black Pine Animal Sanctuary FAQ’s

Barriers and naturalistic habitats ensure the animals are not only safe and secure, but that they are comfortable and not stressed in their surroundings. Their welfare is of upmost importance and is taken very seriously.

Unfortunately there are no baby facilities available.

You are more than welcome to bring your own food and drinks (no alcohol, and note that no cooking equipment is available) as there are spots you can set up a picnic lunch for your family. There are only cold soft drinks vending machines available to buy at the Sanctuary.

It’s important to note that this is not a zoo, but a sanctuary. The animals welfare is priority and so visitors will be chaperoned.

A variety of affordable gifts and souvenirs are available to purchase, and not only do they give you a lovely reminder of your visit, but your money will also support their non-profit mission, meaning you help make the animals happier!

Programs for schools are available for classes to come and learn outside of the school walls. These are available primarily from May to September.

Unfortunately there are no baby facilities available.

Wheelchairs and strollers and often used, although please note that the pathways are loose gravel and asphalt rather than paved so not ideal. The staff will be happy to help in anyway they can. Best to call ahead for assistance and advice.
