The Ark was incorporated as a non-profit, “no kill” animal shelter on March 6, 1990 by Nina Beal.
The Ark’s mission statement is...
To rescue as many homeless animals as possible.
To provide all veterinary care for each animal to include spaying/neutering before adoption.
To maintain a no kill policy except for reasons of mercy or dangerous temperament.
To promote humane treatment of animals through a humane education program.
The Ark provides all veterinarian preventatives to include: juvenile spay/neuter, shelter,
food and a loving “at home” environment for rescued animals while they wait to be adopted into a new loving home.
The Ark operates solely on donations and fundraisers and receives no city, county, state or federal funding.
The Ark also has no paid employees. Volunteers from the community help out at the shelter caring for the rescued animals as well as returning telephone calls. If not for caring citizens, the Ark could not operate.
The Ark Memorial-Honorarium wall is in loving memory of and to honor those that will be remembered for their kindness and generous contributions to the Ark.
The Ark is much more than an animal shelter.
