The Ark Animal Rescue
Promotions And Notices
We will soon be able to accept donations by telephone. Watch out for further news on this.
Both our Dog and Cat waiting lists are unfortunately closed till further notice .
From 1st January our boarding prices will be going up. Also, with immediate effect, we will be asking for a £20 boarding booking deposit to try and reduce the number of people simply not turning up with their dogs. More details of both of these changes on our Boarding page.
We are helping rehome a litter of piglets to good homes. If interested please check them out here.
Dog Agility courses coming soon! More information on our News page
Dog Park continues twice a week for dog-friendly dogs to have fun together off the lead under the supervision of an experienced dog trainer. Again, more information on our News page.
We’re desperately short of complete dry dogfood and disinfectant if anybody can help out with this.
PLEASE NOTE: We don’t need donations of bric-a-brac till further notice as we have as much as we can store.
Gentle Reminder – Opening Times
Can we please remind people that the Ark is now closed every Thursday only as the office will be manned the rest of the week, including weekends, so no visitors or drop-offs of bedding etc. on Thursdays please. Boarders can still come in and be collected and animals going out for adoption can be collected but our reduced staff on this day cannot deal with any other visitors as well as care properly for the animals.
Dog of the Month
Each month we feature a different dog. Some of our dogs seem to attract less attention than others to prospective adopters. Many of these dogs are lovely animals and will make wonderful pets if only people would consider them.
Dottie is our second October Dog of the Month.
Collection Of Adopted Animals
Unfortunately, we’re not able to offer a transport service to new owners as we don’t have the numbers of staff or volunteers to do this without taking them away from vital work at the Ark. New owners are asked to make their own arrangements for collection, including long-distance ones. Also, we’ve had a spate of people not collecting the animal they’ve reserved. If you change your mind for whatever reason, please tell us straight away. We’d rather know as it prevents an animal missing out on another home while it waits to be collected and helps us plan our available space for animals needing rescue.
