Noah's Ark Rehabilitation Center, Inc.

Rating: 4.95 stars   20 reviews

Issues: Animals, Environment

Location: 712 Lg Griffin Rd Locust Grove GA 30248 USA

Mission: To provide a home for abused, unwanted, and orphaned children and animals. To provide an education for a culturally diverse group of children: school, improved social skills, and emotional stability are part of our plan to help break the cycle of poverty and destructive behavior. To provide an awareness through our rehab/education programs which emphasizes that all living things have value no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. When we as a society can recognize this fact we will begin to win the battles for conservation and preservation. To provide God''s unconditional love and care for humans and animals who have special needs in their lives, whether mental, physical, or emotional.
Programs: Noah's Ark has many tropical birds and reptiles. Their current habitats are quality habitats, but it would benefit both species to be in a larger, more climate controlled area. Our vision is to build an indoor, tropical habitat that will house both.

It's amazing what good care can do for animals. Plus if children grow up learning to appreciate and respect animals they have more respect for people.
I like interacting with visitors by telling them something about an animal that they probably didn't know. An ostrich as larger eyes than a brain. A wolf's howl can be heard for a mile. The gibbon's loud noise is really a song. And if you can get Fred the ostrich to dance with you, well, it really is his mating dance! He likes to jog along the fence while kids are running. To watch the lion, tiger, and bear interact makes us aware that we don't have all the answers that Mother nature has.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how children are in awe of different animals and the impact it has on their minds.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

invite more people to visit. It is something that I do often.

I have visited Noah's Ark many times with family and friends. We have a picnic and walk along a paved path... plus we see lots of cool animals. What's not to love? I can always be sure that we will see most of the animals, even the lion, tiger and bear. The peacocks and guinea hens roam free! I have so many good memories of this place: three years ago, I went into labor while I walked the trail -much to my relief, the baby wasn't born there :) Just this spring, my son reached out his hand to pet a sheep named Joey in the petting area and Joey said "Baaa!" in a very friendly way but my son was SO surprised! My nephew loved the monkeys- they were really active and vocal- he told everyone they were the best thing he'd ever seen. Make a trip and I promise you'll make memories of your own :)

This is an exceptional organization. They provide care, love, and a home to both children and animals and they do so much with so little resources. This is an organization that you can believe in and be extremely proud to support. Please let your friends and family know about this incredible place and consider making donations in honor of those you love.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing what they do for the children and animals in their care. I live almost two hours away, but I will be driving in to volunteer my time as often as possible to help support them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give it more resources to grow!

Imagine a place that strives to make the world a better place for all of God's creatures.

Imagine no more.....Noah's Ark

A former Georgia resident and an Auburn University alumni, I head of Noah's Ark when they stepped in to assist in saving the life of Evidence the Zebra. Although Evidence has passed on, I continue to support the organization and its goals to provide homes for abused, unwanted and orphaned children and animals; and to provide education and awareness to the general public regarding the care and rehabilitation of children and animals in our society. It may seem like an odd combination for an organization's mission -- but Noah's Ark makes it work through the dedication and caring of its directors, staff and supporters.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The joy I felt in seeing Evidence the Zebra get the medical care he needed to and being able to live out the remainder of his life in a loving, caring environment.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Absolutely nothing except to ensure that it receives adequate funding to perform its mission and to continue to grow!

First time donor, and looking forward to being a life time supporter. The love, caring, compassion and excitement of Noah's Ark is amazing and contagious. There is a huge story that hasn't been fully told about Noah's Ark and that is a story of uniquie individuals who have come together to take careof and address a part of our world that needs the attention Noah's Ark has made its focus. If you want a understand what giving is all about, then you need to know Noah's Ark. You get more from Noah's Ark's family than you will ever give to them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

An excitement of their love and dedication to what they do 24/7.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them grow, so they can help other habitats grow from their expertise.

I started visiting a Noah's Ark a few years ago with my son Jovin. I remember him being 2 years old and chasing the peacocks. It was so cute and so funny. The peacock would stop so he could get a little closer and then take off running. This went on for some time. Well Jovin is nearly 6 years old now and I now have another 2 year old son named Jerett. We recently went to Noah's Ark and of course Jerett had to chase the peacocks! Lol. My family absolutely loves going to Noah's Ark. It's so much better then the zoo. The people we've met are so friendly and they're doing such a wonderful thing. I love how there seems to be new animals every time we go. We plan to take our kids to Noah's Ark for many yeas to come. Keep doing what you do! We thank you for all your hard work and the happiness you bring!
