  • My family and I participated in the 3 pm weekday guided tour and were amazed at the care and effort that Black Pines put into caring for these rescued animals. The cages and animals are clean and the staff obviously cares for each one of them. It is great to know that animals in need have a place that they can be welcomed and cared for so lovingly. The tour was informative and the staff made every effort to allow us to see every animal, including returning to some in closures at a later time for a second chance to see them. We saw no fewer than 12 big cats (lions and tigers) and multiple other exotic animals. There were multiple bears, wolves, foxes, monkeys, and small cats to name a few. I would gladly return and knowing the 10 dollar tour fee will be used to feed these rescued animals is well worth the cost. Some of the appalling conditions that these animals have come from makes this place even that much more appreciated. Black Pine Staff: Great job succeeding in caring for these animals where so many others have failed! Also thanks for sharing these amazing creatures with us.
  • This is a place you will never forget.. Our Tour Guide was so knowledgeable on every animal that calls this home. Her love and compassion is so evident in the way she talks about the personal stories of each animal and how they found refuge here. I could tell that the tour guides and the staff have a personal relationship with each individual animal. My eyes were opened to the need of places like this. A big "Thank You" to the entire staff and volunteers that minister to these precious animals on a daily basis. This is a must see in Indiana. A great learning experience.
  • Drove 5 hrs to see the place, and it was closed. Website hrs are different than actual hrs. How disappointing. Seen some workers inside the door. They just looked at us, and walked away.
  • Awesome Awesome experience. They do such great things for these animals! Definitely recommend taking the tour!
  • Took a private tour and was very impressed with the staff, the grounds and the operation. The exotic pet trade is a huge problem and without organizations like this stepping up it is hard to imagine how much worse it could get. I highly recommend and encourage people to visit during their season and make a donation. This is an extremely worthwhile cause and they do an excellent job at caring for these animals.
