Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary is a fabulous organization whose work is critical to provide safe habitats for animals, many of whom have had very tragic life circumstances. This is a wonderful group of people and volunteers. The animals are beautiful. Thank you, Noah's Ark!

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 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 :)

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.

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 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!

I try to regularly donate to Noah's Ark. They do such wonderful things for the animals and for the children there. I love to go and see the people (young and old) smile and enjoy all things that Noahs Ark offers.

Noah's Ark is like no other animal rescue organization. The expertise from hands on experience, the relationships with other county, city and state organizations, the educational support to visitors and, above all, the outstanding love and caring for the animals that other places have turned away, make it a very unique and special place for animals and humans alike. The Hedgecoth family loves to live and lives to work with their animals. It's a phenomenal place that everyone should visit and support. We are so blessed to have Noah's Ark within reach.

I have been a supporter of Noah's Ark for many years. I took my son and nephew there when they were tiny, 20 plus years ago, to help them learn about animals and their connection to humans.
Now, the Director of a non profit Humane Society, I continue to support Noah's Ark. I realize how valuable their work is and how difficult it is to keep afloat on a 100% donation basis.
I have first hand exposure to the benefits that come from the bond between animals and people. It is often more of a ministry. What is accomplished at Noah's Ark is no easy feat and takes many hands and hearts. They need and deserve all the support they can get.

When I lived in GA, I used to volunteer for Noah's Ark for a year once a week. I was a habitat ambassador which meant I greeted visitors, answered their questions about the animals and such. It was always such a joy to be at Noah's Ark. The animals are well cared for and the staff clearly loves all the creates in their care and is very passionate about their jobs.

I live in in Florida and flew to New Orleans to get my niece. WE drove to Noah's Ark. It could not have been a more enjoying and satisfying trip. The staff was all pleasant and knowledgable. The animals were all healthy, in clean and large areas. You could just tell they were loved and well cared for. I have traveled around the world to all types of rehab facilities and found this to be my favorite. I am an animal chaplain and photographer and when I returned home I put this facility in my new will. I was so impressed these people, their commitment, mission statement. I just can not say enough about them. This is a must trip for all of those who love animals.

I found something in my life that I am passionate about. This treasure is Noah's Ark Animal Rehabilitation Center in Locust Grove, Georgia.

Noah's Ark not only provides a home, health care, food and a natural environment for many types of abandoned or abused animals they provide love for and pride in their charges. All who work there know the stories of why these animals have come under their care and love to share the joy with the people who visit the facility.

I have been aware of Noah's Ark for several years. No where could you find a more caring, dedicated group of people. They care as much for the people who come through their doors as they do all the animals entrusted to their care. It's a real joy to interact with the staff and they are very eager to answer any questions you might have. Just great people!

I have volunteered in the habitat for several months now. I volunteer 1 day per week, although this month, my schedule permits 2 days per week. It is time well spent!
I learn something new about the animals everytime I am at The Ark. The staff is so knowledgeable! I love meeting visitors, and sharing information with them. I am always surprised at the questions the children ask me! It is great to see the children interested and engaged, and curious, and asking questions. The grownups like it as well, and I've enjoyed walking around with folks, and helping them to learn more about the animals. There is also the opportunity to remind people to have respect for these wild animals, and to understand that the animals are not pets.
The owners of the ranch, and the staff, are all incredibly warm, kind people dedicated fully to animal care. I felt immediately welcome! It is a great pleasure for me to be a part of the volunteer staff, and my time at the Ark something I always look forward to.

I took my 3 year old grandson to Noah's Ark. He loved seeing the animals. What I liked was the easy, laid back environment. The animals were all in large comfortable settings and looked content. I left there grateful for the home the animals have. This is a wonderful place for the animals and humans alike.

My family has visited Noah's Ark numerous times and are always impressed by the care and compassion the staff shows for each and every one of God's creatures in their care. We are monthly donors as well, and consider this a part of our tithe.

Every animal at Noah's Ark has a story. If you know them, you will know that the work they do there is phenomenal. They provide a forever home for exotic animals that have been abused, neglected, sick or just not wanted. The habitats for their animals are spacious and done with that species best interests at heart. To top it all off, they invite the public to visit their animals for FREE! All they ask is a modest donation.

The staff is absolutely dedicated to the cause and to educating our children about wildlife found all over the world. The great thing about Noah's Ark is they let their animals be themselves, whatever that is. Where else can you see a lion, tiger and bear who think they are siblings? That is the way they came to Noah's Ark and it seemed natural to leave them together.

As you can see, a huge portion of their revenue is spent on their mission. That is important for donors to know.

I'm proud of Noah's Ark, the fantastic facilities, and glad to visit their beautiful residents. If you ever have the chance to visit, take the opportunity. It is worth the trip!
