Black Pine Animal Sanctuary will host St. Catty's Day on Saturday, March 12 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. St. Catty's Day is a celebration of the good fortune that enables Black Pine to give refuge to over 100 displaced, captive-raised exotic animals for the rest of their lives. Visitors will enjoy the opportunity to meet over 20 large carnivores and witness the black bears as they begin to come out of winter hibernation and explore outdoors for the first time since late November.

Black Pine is located at 1426 W. 300 N., just 1.5 miles west of the intersection of State Roads 8 and 9 in Albion, about 40 minutes northwest of Fort Wayne. Costs of entry will be $8.00 for ages 3-9, $10.00 for ages 10-54, $8.00 for ages 55 and over, and free for children under three years of age and for Park Pal members. Donations of items on the sanctuary's "wish list", published on their website at www.blackpine.org, will be accepted in lieu of tour fees when given in equal or greater value.

All proceeds of St. Catty's Day directly benefit the animals enjoying refuge for the REST of their lives at Black Pine. For more information visit www.blackpine.org or call 260-636-7383.
