Why Support Animal Ark?

Supporting us supports our No-Kill Mission & Message.

Your support helps us raise the bar and set a new standard for how we as a nation treat our animals.

It allows us to create a new and better world for them, creating a kinder, gentler, and better world for us and future generations.

Our Mission is Simple:

Rescue, Rehabilitate, Rehome


Our Message is Simple:  

All Animals Deserve a Loving Home


What Does That Mean When Put Into Practice?

  • We take in animals based on need - not quick turnover.
  • We make a lifetime commitment to all our animals.
  • Profit is never a consideration - we have no bottom line.
  • We believe every animal deserves a real chance at life, including those that have been deemed unadoptable.
  • We provide everything to give our animals that real chance at life - Time, Medical care, Food, Training & Love.
  • We never give into Financial pressures - we never consider transferring difficult cases out to other organizations.
  • We only consider euthanizing when incurable suffering is involved.
  • We never give up. Never!  

In many cases, the animals present to us with medical and behavioral issues have endured unimaginable abuse, neglect, and, finally, abandonment.

Their issues have been created by people, owners that couldn't or wouldn't give them a safe, caring & loving home.

We believe that as a community, as a society, we share in the responsibility to alleviate their suffering now by creating an environment that allows the animal to heal and learn to trust again.

We believe animals are not disposable and not a commodity.  Yes, it takes a lot!  A lot of passion, commitment, time, and resources. 

Each animal deserves this!

Meet Frankie Lee

Like many animals that come to Animal Ark, Frankie Lee was in desperate need of medical intervention. His condition was critical, and he was in a great deal of pain. It required multiple surgeries and treatments to restore Frankie Lee back to a happy and playful kitten. But his recovery took more than just medical treatments; it also took time and lots of TLC.  Frankie Lee is recovered and enjoying his remaining eight lives in a foster-to-adopt home.

Meet Drake

Drake arrived from South Carolina in critical condition. He was the unfortunate victim of a fighting situation, and some of his friends didn’t survive. Drake has undergone heartworm treatment, and his broken leg and wounds have been patched up, but emotionally he is still learning to trust people. Animal Ark and its dedicated staff and volunteers work tirelessly to help animals like Drake regain trust and confidence. Drake will be available for adoption when his progress allows.

Fundraising Goal

Our goal is to maintain a $30,000 Long-Termer Fund

Your donations allow us to continue to provide long-term care to our animals without the concern of current financial ability and the necessity to hold individual fundraisers for each animal.  

Long-Termer include all animals that require immediate medical intervention, professional socialization, and behavioral training.

The average annual cost of care for a healthy animal is $600.  Here at  Animal Ark, we place no cap on the resources available to  Long-Term animals.

We at Animal Ark are honored to have the opportunity to find Responsible Loving Forever Homes for every animal we have the privilege of serving.

Please support our No-Kill Mission & Message by Donating Today! We can not do this without You!
