With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our Founder and President, Charles Stewart, on January 16, 2015.
The mission of Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary, Inc. is to provide a temporary safe haven for unwanted, stray, and abandoned dogs and cats. The Ark promotes an affordable spay/neuter program to help end the overpopulation of animals in our community.
The sanctuary was founded and incorporated by a small group of residents from Rockford, IL on April 30, 1978. Their primary concern was humane care and population control. There has been over 20,000 animals that have been aboard the ark.
Each year hundreds of animals come to Noah's Ark in need of a warm bed, good meal, and most importantly a forever home. Our dedicated staff and volunteers work hard to ensure each animal receives the best care possible during his/her stay.
We receive no government funding and rely on the support and kindness from our community, private donations, bequests, fund raising events, grants, and volunteer help to complete our mission.
Noah's ark does not euthanize animals to make space to house others. We are a no kill shelter and work to preserve life whenever possible.
Our vision is to secure a safe environment for all companion animals. We envision where all people and their pets live healthy, happy, and long lives together.
Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization since 1978
