The Ark Animal Rescue
Promotions And Notices
ACCESS TO THE ARK DURING SEAL SEASON
The seal traffic is making it nearly impossible to get down our road to the Ark, especially at weekends. Visitors may find it easier to to join the one-way system until Christmas and access the Ark from the coast end.
Our Rehoming Cattery is currently CLOSED to the public till further notice as we have cats sneezing in there.
PLEASE NOTE, WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT, WE HAVE HAD TO STOP USING DUVETS, BLANKETS, PILLOWS, CUSHIONS ETC. We’ve received notice to find another way of disposing of duvets etc. so please we can now only use fleece blankets or ones that will wash and dry easily, also Vetbeds and knitted blankets. This has meant a whole change to our system We now have 3 washing machines running daily so donations of washpowder would be very much appreciated. Thank you
Fleece blankets and vet beds
We’re running low on Catfood, both meat, biscuits and kitten pouches in jelly, so if you’re thinking of donating anything, please make it catfood!
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.
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.
