The Black Pine Animal Sanctuary was established 18 years ago to provide refuge to displaced, captive-raised exotic animals for the rest of their lives and to educate people about responsible animal care and conservation. Nearly 60 species reside in the sanctuary, including big and small cats, canines, bears, birds, and reptiles. The annual Roar n’ Snore event offers a rare chance for the general public to camp (tents only) among the animals in a safe environment, enjoy an evening meal outside, take a guided tour of the facility, watch a movie, and listen to the sounds of the animals as they do what they do during the night and morning hours. Black Pine is supported solely by activities like these as well as with donations. It is run by a volunteer staff and volunteer board of directors. Not only is Roar n’ Snore a lot of fun, but the event proceeds benefit a good cause as well.
