  • AMAZING! Animals are so well cared for, and have plenty of space. The tours are very informative and you can see the animals as close as needed. It stresses the issue of keeping exotic animals in homes. The Keepers and staff do a great job to keep it clean and make sure people and animals are enjoying themselves. Great for all ages and groups. Everyone should go!!
  • Beautiful animals and facilities! This place has really blossomed in the 15 years since I first visited, and they're doing great work! The staff were wonderful and so knowledgeable; we loved seeing the bobcats eat and the lioness running for some exercise. Such an up close and personal experience for a great price.
  • Black Pine has some great staff. Make sure to take the guided tour, the guide will tell you the back ground of the animals, and how they came to be at the sanctuary. Great place to take kids!
  • Great organization that care for animals in need for life. Very educational and enjoyable to see all of the beautiful animals. Skip the zoo and visit Black Pines.
  • I love what they do here to help these animals. The guided tour is so informative. It's nice to get a little background on all the animals, although it is very sad to know what they all went through. I would definitely recommend anyone to visit!
