Animal Rescue Resources

Exotic Animals

If you have a captive-raised exotic animal in need of permanent refuge and want to know if Black Pine Animal Sanctuary can help, please complete an Animal Adoption Questionnaire and we will respond with further information and/or instructions as quickly as possible. Please note, Black Pine is not accepting grazing/farm animals, aquatic animals, native born Indiana wildlife, or ground birds. If we are not able to help the animal(s) you are inquiring about, we will do our best to help find an alternative solution.

Native Wildlife

Black Pine is not licensed, or equipped, to assist with native-born "wild" animals. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) advises that "the apparent lack of an adult does not mean a young animal is alone. Adults often leave their young safe in nests or dens while they forage for food but rarely are they abandoned. If a young animal is found, leave it alone. The adult will return when the area is clear."

For inquiries about local/native wildlife, or to locate an Indiana licensed wildlife rehabber, please consult the Indiana Department of Natural Resources website.

Domestic / Pocket Pets

Dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents, hedgehogs, chinchillas, sugar gliders, ferets, etc. may be assisted by your local humane society or shelter organization. In Indiana, you may also find help for exotic pocket pets at the Exotic Animal Rescue and Pet Sanctuary (EARPS)
