  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Went for a self guided tour on Tuesday morning and we LOVED it!!! The animals were in large open enclosures that had lots of enrichment activities for the animals. We got to watche the wolves playing, the tigers roars, the cougar talking, the birds singing to each other.... It was a turely heartfelt feeling compaired to where these animals came from. Keep up the great work guys!!
  • I have made at least one trip here, each year, for several years now. And I love it. The kids love it, and everyone I take. Awesome to get so close to the animals, in a in the middle of nowhere setting. And I love the wolves. Excited to get back this year!
  • Love that these animals have a place to live the rest of their lives peacefully!
