What is there to do?

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, 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.

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.

I’m Hungry!

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. - Fun things to do with kids and best places to visit in the US
