The Ark Animal Rescue welcomes you to it's website. Please look around the site, where you will find information about the Ark.

We have long-term animals who will stay with us for the rest of their lives as they cannot be rehomed for a variety of reasons and animals which are waiting for a loving home. We take in animals for adoption from private homes, other rescues and sometimes via the dog warden. We have mainly dogs and cats but also have rabbits and small furries, including ferrets from time to time as well as occasional other species. We do not keep exotics.

Opening Times: We are open to visitors every day of the year, except Christmas Day and Boxing Day from 12-3pm. The gates will NOT be opened before 12md to enable staff to get cleaning and feeding done in time. If you are dropping off food, bedding etc outside these hours, please leave in the collection bin outside the gates

Please check the appropriate pages for terms of adoption etc. All dogs are microchipped free of charge. Unfortunately, the funding we had to cover the free vaccination voucher scheme has now come to an end so we are unable to offer it until further notice. Hopefully we'll manage to secure more funding in the future. We encourage owners to vaccinate their pets before handing them over to the Ark but cannot guarantee that every animal will be fully vaccinated.

All information on this website is correct to the best of our knowledge. We pass on to prospective owners all we know about the animals in our care but have to rely on former owners to be truthful and accurate. We do, however, update information at regular intervals as animals are observed and assessed. Please feel free to contact us for any information or advice about our animals or services that you cannot find on this website and we will do our best to help.

ARK BOARDING FACILITIES

With immediate effect, we cannot take any further bookings for cat boarding but existing bookings will be honoured. This is due to the desperate cat situation with so many cats needing rescue. Without taking in boarders this will allow us to rescue more needy cats and hopefully ease our waiting list which which we have been forced to close for some months.

All animals MUST be vaccinated and proof of up-to-date vaccination shown upon request and all animals must have had recent flea treatment. Bookings can be made via the Ark office on 01507 358140 or by calling in at the Ark during opening hours. Dog charges are £10 for 1 dog and £15 for two sharing a kennel from 1st January 2013.

Please ensure your pet is brought in and collected between 12midday and 4pm unless by prior arrangement with the manager. All pet belongings are left at owner's risk as we provide food and bedding. Please see FAQ page for more details.

WANTED!

A Norfolk gold Turkey, preferably female, to be a companion Rosie, to our new resident turkey of the same breed. Please get in touch if you have one we could have.

 

PLEASE NOTE! Eastfield vets are uunable to take in any bedding etc for the Ark until their current building work is completed as they'll have nowhere to store it.

S.O.S!
CAT FOOD NEEDED!
Due to an influx of cats (we now have over 90) we are desperately short of food and cannot keep up with demand: tinned, pouches or dry, adult or kitten. Any donations gratefully accepted.

Also, fresh carrots and vegetable for the large number of rabbits and guinea pigs we have, and shredded newspapers and wood shavings would be much appreciated.
