Updates from Animal Ark.

Spring has arrived. Our cats are enjoying sprawling out in their condos bathed in sunbeams, and our dogs are enjoying longer, warmer walks outdoors.

Due to Coronavirus, Animal Ark remains closed to the public and volunteers. We remain open for dog adoptions and cat fostering by appointment only. Please call us at (651) 772-8983 to arrange an appointment.

Our skeleton crew continues to do amazing work caring for our animals. They regularly post pictures on our Facebook page of recent adoptions as well as eligible animals. Our volunteers count the days ’til they can once again visit Animal Ark and re-bond with the cats and dogs they’ve come to know and love.

Even though volunteering is temporarily off-limits, there are many ways you can help. Please check our Donations page for multiple ways to support Animal Ark during this time of need. As mentioned previously, our 3K Walk (the year’s biggest fundraiser) was canceled due to the current crisis. We hoped to raise $40K at the Walk. We reduced our goal to $26K and are depending on your generosity to help us meet that goal. So far, so good!

If you can afford to donate to Animal Ark, please do. Multiple people have committed to donating part or all of their stimulus check to the Ark. We understand this is a time of unparalleled need for many people, so rest assured we understand that your household comes first. But if you can afford even a small donation to Animal Ark, that will go a long way toward helping keep us afloat until we return to life-as-usual, hopefully very soon.

If you find yourself ordering more and more items thru Amazon, be sure to utilize Amazon Smile to support Animal Ark. Search for “Friends of Animal Adoptions.” With each purchase, a small percentage of the purchase price goes to Animal Ark. We also have a robust Amazon Wish List featuring items such as cat/dog food, cat litter, toys, leashes, etc.

We’re pleased to announce we’ve begun archiving our email blasts and quarterly newsletters. Hover over the “News” tab to enjoy these publications. If you would like to be added to our mailing lists (electronic and postal), send your contact info to arknews@animalarkmn.org.

Below are some photos of recent Animal Ark adoptions. We’re delighted that even during this time of unprecedented turmoil, people are still bringing deserving animals into their households. Pet ownership is known to reduce stress, and we all know there’s no shortage of stress right now. If you think a cat or dog is just what your household needs to help you weather the storm, contact us today.

Thank you for supporting Animal Ark!
