The mission of GFAS is to continuously improve the quality of care for animals requiring sanctuary by:
- Accrediting sanctuaries based on worldwide standards of excellence
- Facilitating operational and financial support
- Enhancing effectiveness, recognition and collaboration
They currently accredit 212 groups, which encompass over 25,000 animals across 18 countries.
Black Pine is a nonprofit organization and is the only accredited multi-species sanctuary in the Midwest. This is huge because it means that they are able to provide specific care to many kinds of animals.
