Located in Houlton, Maine, The Ark Animal Sanctuary rescues, 

cares for, and re-homes sick, injured, unwanted animals 

that have no options and need a safe place to go.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that relies on the incredible support

 of our community to help make happy endings for these animals.

We Need Your Help!

Around the Sanctuary

There's never a shortage of activity around the Sanctuary - from bird-watching to visits from Santa, from making friends with new arrivals to celebrating happily-ever-afters!

We don't just rescue animals in need:  we offer a memorial chapel for quiet contemplation and remembrance, and we've recently sponsored a wellness day with Dr. Tanja Ebel at our new pet care clinic.

Make  a "virtual visit" to the Sanctuary - the pictures in the carousel will introduce you to some of our favorite faces and give you a behind-the-scenes peek at the magical work of the Ark and its team of dedicated volunteers.
