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. Animal Ark maintains an agreement with our local animal control/impound center for Hastings & Rosemount to accept stray dogs that have not been reclaimed by their families.
In addition, we accept sick and injured strays from within our immediate area who are in need of medical care. This collaborative relationship created the first No Kill community in Minnesota.
