It only took my first and second time visiting to see the amazing care and compassion the staff and volunteers have for the animals. As it should be the animals always come first.
I am an avid supporter and love my time visiting the animals. The efforts they extend to make the experience for the visitors educational is exemplary. Its nothing new that again and again is been shown there are so many out there that have no regard for animals as living and feeling creatures that deserve life without suffering or being used for profit. It makes my heart happy to know every single animal at Black Pine will know nothing but the best care possible for the rest of their lives.
The people at Black Pine Animal Sanctuary are among some of the most educated, dedicated, and passionate people I've ever encountered in the animal industry, and the behavior in the animals has a direct correlation with that! The enclosures are kept clean daily, and the organization within the facility is great! Top-notch organization!
This facility is amazing, not only for the service they provide but the friendliness and community awareness they bring to their cause. They have some of the best community events (wine & beer tastings, silent auctions, etc) all while you get the chance to walk around the sanctuary. When you talk with the workers you can definitely tell how passionate they are about what they do.
Black Pine is the coolest place that I have ever visited. The keepers are very knowledgeable and love to share information about all of the animals that make their forever home at Black Pine. They have rescued numerous animals who otherwise would not be alive today.
Black Pine Animal Sanctuary at Albion, Indiana is such a great place to visit and spend time with family. They are very professional with their care of the animals in their keeping. They think of new and exciting enrichments for the animals so they don't feel bored or lonely. They inform all visitors about how the animals have come to them and advocate more humane treatment of animals through out the world. I love to take my grandchildren here to learn about what they can do to help make sure that the mistakes of the elders do not continue to trickle down. They learn that the animals that we share our planet with have rights that should be respected. With the help of places like Black Pine, maybe the next generation will not repeat our mistakes.
As a senior citizen grappling with a few things, when I visit Black Pine, I leave feeling hopeful. Hope is a big gift in my life so they are not only giving deserving animals hope, they inspire it in humans as well.
The first time I visited this place I was in awe. It's truly a magnificent place and the people who work there are truly awesome people. I'm truly grateful for this place for the animals well being. Please keep this place going. And please bless all who work there and god bless the animals!
As a society we are staggeringly slow to adopt legislation to protect animals. Because of this, there are far to many animals in urgent need of sanctuary. BPAS is not a zoo, it is a forever home for animals who have been surrendered, abandoned, seized by law enforcement or acquired through other circumstances. Many of their animals have lived in deplorable conditions prior to coming to BPAS. They have been exploited, used for profit, breeding or simply been owned by private citizens that had no idea of the magnatitude of their care. BPAS gives these animals the love, care, nourishment, and enrichment they deserve. The staff is amazing, loving, knowledgeable and dedicated. In addition to caring for these animals in need, they do so much to educate people. I don't know anyone who has ever visited BPAS that has not been impressed with and moved by this extraordinary facility.
My father had Alzheimers disease and went to adukt daycare three days a week. Wednesdays were field trip days and he got to Black Pine sanctuary. He loved it and wanted to go back. I never got a chance to take him back but I have gone and understand why he loved it.
What an amazing place. It does my heart good to know these animals have a place like this to live out the rest of their lives.
What an amazing facility. The animals are well cared for and the grounds are fantastic. The volunteers and staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth the drive to see animals living out their lives comfortably and happy.
