Official Description

Black Pine Animal Park is a 501c3 non-profit exotic animal sanctuary and zoo.  Established in 1993, the park inhabits just over 12 acres of a former working farm on the western edge of Albion, Indiana in northeastern Noble County.  In 2003, the co-founders of the sanctuary turned over operations to Professional Animal Retirement Center, Inc.  A volunteer board of directors and full-time senior zookeeper manage the facility and a volunteer staff of approximately 40 people.

Black Pine Animal Park is home to over 90 exotic animals representing over 43 species.  Nearly all residents are rescued exotic pets that came from private homes, or retired circus performers.  The operation is licensed by the USDA to exhibit the animals, which provides a large percentage of the funding necessary to operate.  Additional funding comes through private donations, corporate sponsorships, educational outreach, and various other programs.
