Doggie Depot 2020.

Saturday, Feb. 1 was Doggie Depot at the historic Union Train Depot in Lowertown. As always, Animal Ark was there joining the fun, answering questions about our shelter, and of course introducing several eligible canines to the world. Here are some pictures from the event. If you have questions about a particular dog or about our shelter in general, we invite you to contact us. Thanks to everyone who visited us, and of course to the large group of dedicated volunteers who showed up and helped with the event! As always: We couldn’t have done it without you!

Welcome to Doggie Depot 2020!
Taken before the official start time. Mere moments later, throngs of people and pups as far as the eye could see.
Animal Ark volunteers set up our booth.

Blu greets his adoring public.


Chavo, known to be a bit timid, endured the teeming throngs with good grace.
A large crowd gathers ’round the Animal Ark booth.
All this activity can wear out even the most sociable pup. Hank takes a much-needed breather.


Lily 3 enjoyed meeting canines who aren’t fellow Animal Ark residents. Hopefully someone will give her a forever home very soon.


See all that blue? Those are volunteers, dedicating half their Saturday to our event! And that’s not even all of them. Thanks to everyone who helped!


This lad seemed a bit nervous around our dogs at first, but thanks to the patience of our volunteers, he soon made several friends.


Hank fits right in with St. Paul Winter Carnival royalty.
