Black Pine Animal Sanctuary


Recognized as one of Indiana's Top Ten "Summer Gotta-Do's" Black Pine is a true sanctuary that doesn’t buy, sell, breed, trade or seek out animals. The 18-acre refuge is home to 100 displaced, captive-raised wildcats, bears, wolves, primates, reptiles, birds, and more. Public visitation and many special events by reservation are available from May through September. The Wolf Den Gifts & Things, offering a variety of animal-themed merchandise and souvenirs, is open by request and for walk-in visitation during the summer season.


Sanctuary tour programs are offered from May through September, daily during summer, and by appointment during the off-season. For full details and program availability, visit and use the resources provided under "Visit Us".
