I am both a donor and volunteer with this group. I have been in the rescue world for 6 years and have helped many other groups, and have yet to find one that measures up to this one. This group goes into some of the worst shelters in California, Texas, Georgia, Florida and many other states. They are are a serious rescue that not only takes healthy dogs, but the injured, the sick and the old ones - the ones that many other rescue groups pass by because of the cost of caring for some of these dogs. They are rescued, rehabilitated and placed in loving homes. No dog is ever placed in a home that has not been thoroughly checked out and visited by one of the many experienced volunteers. I am proud to be a member of this organization and love the many volunteers who give their hearts and devotion to this group and to every dog that is rescued.
ARK Charities has been created in 2017 after the founder independently rescued 100s of dogs over 6 yrs. Realizing that in order to do more they had to grow and garner support to create a rescue that could thrive and assure that the dogs saved had the highest quality care possible. It is not always about number of dogs saved - to many wind up with "rescues" that just want the accolades associated with getting large numbers of dogs and to often don't really care where they end up or what these precious pups lives are really like. It is ARK's philosophy if you can't help the animals achieve their greatest quality of life possible and match them with loving families that will give them a fabulous forever family and home where they cared for and protected and safe, what have you really accomplished.
ARK Charities is an all volunteer, faith based 501c3 charity specializing in rescuing dogs from around the country in need of rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming. Made up of three divisions with complementary functions and a common theme, the rescue division - Redemption Rescue, does "Rescue With a Purpose" and the dogs are not only greatly sought out to become loving family members for wonderful caring homes, but are also often selected to become trained service or therapy dogs for veteran, children with disabilities and battered/abused woman and fall under their ARK Angels Assistance Program. It is ARK's goal to expand the scope of programs and provide more innovative and beneficial programs to an extended community where they can truly change lives by "Saving animals and helping the people that love and need them".
