Black Pine Animal Sanctuary will host an afternoon of fun for all ages with the return of Animal Enrichment Day on Saturday, December 28 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

The non-profit animal sanctuary, home to over 100 displaced, captive-raised tigers, lions, cougars, bears, and other exotic animals, will be delivering hand-made animal prey pinatas, toys, and treats to many of the large predatory animals throughout the afternoon. The event will also feature the "first look" at the all new W. Paul Wolf Family Resource Center. The new visitor center will house retail souvenir sales, snacks, and educational resource space and training room. These new services will be available beginning in May 2014.

The public is invited to observe and enjoy exploring the Sanctuary throughout the afternoon. A bonfire and hot cocoa and coffee will be provided. Many of Black Pine's animal keepers will be on hand all afternoon to help provide guests a close-up look at the animals, provide personal introductions, and answer questions.

Admission to Animal Enrichment Day will be $7.00 for ages three to nine, $8.00 for ages 10 and up, and free for children under three years old. Donations of items listed on Black Pine's wish lists, published on the organization's web site at, and at, will be gratefully accepted in lieu of admission fees in equal or greater value. Reservations are not required, or necessary. Any weather-related concerns that may postpone or cancel this event will be announced by a voicemail message and on Black Pine's website, if applicable.

For more information visit or call (260) 636-7383. All proceeds of this winter-time event help fund the ongoing care of the animals enjoying refuge at the Sanctuary for the REST of their lives.
