At Animal Ark we embrace and follow a no kill philosophy in our work to Rescue, Rehabilitate, & Re-home Minnesota’s lost and homeless companion animals every year. We are honored to have the opportunity to serve these amazing animals, their new adoptive families, and the many communities across Minnesota.

While nothing can compare to the comforts of home, Animal Ark strives to provide an enriching environment for our shelter animals.

This year marks our 40th year as a  No-Kill Animal Shelter and we are participating/hosting several events to help make it extra special!

We have extended hours for summer! The shelter is now open Thursday evenings until 8:00 p.m. 

All other hours are the same.

The Shelter will be close on July 4th in honor of the holiday!
