Black Pine Animal Sanctuary is closed for the season and will reopen the first weekend of May 2024.
Nestled on 18 acres in Northern Indiana Lake Country, Black Pine Animal Sanctuary is the forever home to over 75 captive raised exotic and wild animals. In 2019 BPAS became the only multi-species Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) accredited sanctuary in the state of Indiana. The sanctuary offers over ½ mile of paved trails which meander through a wooded area with various habitats for wolves, foxes, tigers, bobcats, and bears. In addition to the outdoor habitats, Black Pine contains a Primate House, Reptile House, and Avian Building. Most of the animal residents at BPAS were voluntarily surrendered, however some were removed by legal authorities. As a true sanctuary, Black Pine Animal Sanctuary does not buy, sell, trade, or seek out the animals living here. The animals living at BPAS will have refuge here for the REST of their lives.
We offer free parking, a pavilion with picnic tables, and special events during the season.
