Our goal is to pair one-in-a-million pets with one-in-a-million families.
Animal Ark is a Minnesota-based animal welfare organization. We embrace and follow a no-kill philosophy in our work to rescue, rehabilitate, & rehome Minnesota’s lost and homeless companion animals every year.
Founded in 1977, Animal Ark is a 501(c) 3 non-profit Minnesota corporation. We accept sick and injured strays from within our immediate area who require medical care. This collaborative relationship created the first No Kill community in Minnesota.
