#MonthlyMojo: Animal Ark

MM Animal Ark slider

of Hastings, MN - Land of 10,000 Lakes Minnesota's largest no-kill animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing cats and dogs

Rescue, Rehabilitate & Rehome. That’s what Animal Ark of Minnesota strives to do every day.

Founded in 1977, Animal Ark is a Minnesota-based animal welfare organization that embraces and follows a no kill philosophy. They rescue, rehabilitate, & rehome over 800 of Minnesota’s lost and homeless companion animals every single year.

Animal Ark works in cooperation with the local animal control/impound centers to accept stray cats and dogs that have not been reclaimed by their families.  This collaborative approach made it possible to create the first No Kill community in Minnesota. In addition, Animal Ark accepts sick and injured strays from within their immediate area that are in need of medical care. This helps pet owners who are facing difficult situations to find rescue for their pets through Animal Ark.

As Jackson Galaxy’s #MonthlyMojo for May, a special donation page has been set-up just for Animal Ark, with every cent going to further their mission.  Not even credit card processing fees are taken out of the contributions made here.

As little as $5 helps an animal. $15 will provide a cat with a heartworm/FeLV test; and $25 will give an animal a micro-chip so he’ll never be lost from home again.

While nothing can compare to the comforts of home, Animal Ark strives to provide an enriching environment for shelter animals. Cats are housed in rooms built specifically for small sociable groups of cats.  These “condos” feature exterior windows and multiple cat trees and perches to provide a warm, comfortable environment for their feline friends.
