I was on the Ark-Valley board years ago as it was just beginning and have been a supporter ever since. I have never seen an animal shelter that takes such good care of its homeless pets. Dogs are walked, trained, groomed, and loved. Same with cats, except maybe not the walking part. Volunteers come to the shelter daily for a variety of things, and some just come to pet and talk to the animals. The shelter is sparkling clean, too. If I could give it more stars, I would!
