Animal Ark is Minnesota’s largest no-kill 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. While nothing can compare to the comforts of home, Animal Ark strives to provide an enriching environment for our shelter animals.
