I have been a patron of the Ark Wildlife Sanctuary for several years, and will continue to donate and participate in their fundraising auctions. I am so impressed by their dedication, devotion, and tireless care of all of the amazing animals they have rescued and care for. And the Ark Wildlife Refuge certainly far exceeds expectations. Although I have never visited the refuge, and I plan on that in the future, their social media sites provide all of their followers with day to day activities. I am honored to be an admirer of the refuge, and would like to encourage everyone to visit their site. Margaret Stuhlreyer

I love Ark Rain so much that I wanted to be a part of its operation. Exotic animals and great people are a winning combination.

I have been following Ark Rain Wildlife Sanctuary for the last couple of years. They are a small sanctuary with alot of heart! Their animals come first and you can tell they love them dearly. It's amazing what they have been able to accomplish for all the adversities that have come their way. Being able to get more fund raising would be a blessing for all! Would love to see them grow and be able to help more animals in the future!

This is an awesome wildlife sanctuary! Even though they've had several setbacks, including an arson fire, they've persevered because they truly love the animals. I never hesitate to donate to this organization.

All the hard work and dedication the people from ARK give and do for the animals to make there lives better, is simply amazing.
I hope to one day to be able to visit the people and the animals At ARK, it would be a great experience to see them up close in their own habitat.

Keep up the good work ARK , the animals need and depend on all of you.

Thank you for all you do

The hardworking folks at this wildlife rescue/sanctuary labor day and night to keep their beloved animals happy, well-fed, and with the best veterinary care. They do not breed, bother, or exploit their big cats or other animals in any way, allowing them to be true to their natures, while providing them with as much space as they can afford, and other enrichments. They put their animals care above themselves, transparently and tirelessly holding sales, fundraising, feeding and caring for the animals themselves. They truly abide by their creed: "A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast." Proverbs 12:10. I donate monthly, and I can't recommend them highly enough.

The cofounders of this sanctuary are hardworking and dedicated people. There are too many stories to share. It doesn't matter if it is a snake, a rat or a tiger, each and every animal is special and worth their time.

Toni and Tim love and care for the animals. I have never met anyone so dedicated to the care and well being of all animals. They work hard to see that all the animals needs are met.

This is an amazing charity that has overcome so much adversity after a devastating fire in 2011 when many animals were lost and the home of the charity's founders, Tim and Toni Davies, burned down. They have since, after several years and with considerable fundraising effort, relocated to larger acreage in Tennessee to rebuild and improve the sanctuary and provide an improved quality of life for the domestic and exotic species that come into their care. There are very few refuges of this kind. Living at a distance, I choose to support them as a donor and participant in their seasonal auctions and other fundraisers. Spread the word, they should be better known and deserve the support of people who care about animals, particularly the exotics who have few options for experienced, lifelong refuge care.

Wonderful animal sanctuary! They continue to house and help animals after a tragic and devastating fire that killed many of the animals in their care and destroyed their home. Instead of giving up they have persevered and I am happy to support them anyway I can.

ARK R A I N is a wonderful organization and the founders work day and night to care for the animals in their sanctuary. They were devastated by a fire in 2011 and lost their home and their ability to travel and teach about the importance of animals to our world. They depend on donations for animal food and shelter and 100% goes to the animals. They are very dedicated and love each and every one of the animals.

This sanctuary has continued to provide and care for their charges after a devastating fire several years ago. They have recently moved to a new property where the animals have amazing habitats to run and play. I have been supporting them for several years, including donating handmade items for their auctions.

Ark R.A.I.N. Wildlife Sanctuary, Inc. (ARWS) is a Non Profit, 501(c)(3) exotic animal rescue in west TN. ARWS has given a loving, permanent home to hundreds of animals in need. On November 19th, Ark R.A.I.N. Wildlife Sanctuary faced one of the most horrific nightmares imaginable. While Co-founders Tim and Toni Davies and all the animals were sleeping, a fire ripped through the Sanctuaries tropical rooms which housed rescued exotic animals from all over the world, and through the Davies home. Sadly 56 precious animals were lost in the blaze. Tim, Toni, one rescued cat and dog (Ashes and Freedom) barely escaped the fire, suffering smoke inhalation, mild cuts, burns, and severe emotional damage. Hearts and spirits are broken. Buildings lie in ruin. Everything was lost. Arson is suspected but as to date, the investigation is ongoing and no suspect has been arrested, yet.
To this day they work daily with the 60 animals left to provide them with enrichment, food, water, shelter, and interaction. Please click the DONATE tab on the Ark R.A.I.N. Wildlife Sanctuary facebook wall or on the arkrain.org website to give.

Great people doing great work. Very few charities work so harder to do good. Toni and Tim have poured their lives into taking care of animals in need. They deserve our support.
