If we succeed in our mission, why do we need a "future"?
We are committed to the animals already residing with us for the REST of their lives, and our work is not done. Based on current operating costs and the life expectancy of those now in residence, we can project total expenses of over $1,000,000 over the next five years, with lifespans that will far exceed five years.
We are committed to educating and raising awareness to help diminish the need for the services we provide. Even so, animals will continue to need our help indefinitely. We have provided refuge to an average of six more animals each year since 2004.
Lifetime Alliance Members will receive:
Lifetime Park Pal Membership
Listing in our Footprints Newsletter
Routine e-Bulletin updates
Long-term name recognition (optional)
Members of the Lifetime Alliance provide financial support to continue the mission we have endeavored to fulfill since 2004, to provide refuge to displaced, captive-raised exotic animals for the REST of their lives and educate people about responsible animal care and conservation.
What is the Lifetime Alliance?
The Black Pine Lifetime Alliance, established in 2017, provides the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy that will help us keep our commitment to providing care to the animal residents of Black Pine Animal Sanctuary for the REST of their lives, or for their "lifetime", be that a few months or decades from now.
What is the purpose of the Lifetime Alliance?
The purpose of the Lifetime Alliance is to recognize those individuals and families who have remembered Black Pine Animal Sanctuary in their estate plans through a documented planned gift. The Lifetime Alliance also serves to enable those who wish to invest in the sustainability and future of Black Pine for generations to come.
