Animal Ark is a Minnesota-based animal welfare organization. We embrace and follow a no kill philosophy in our work to rescue, rehabilitate, & rehome 800 of Minnesota’s lost and homeless companion animals every year. Animal Ark Shelter, located in Hastings, Minnesota, operates as the heart of the rescue effort, while the Thrift Store in St. Paul provides an enjoyable shopping experience, crucial support for the shelter, and community involvement. Founded in 1977, Animal Ark is a 501(c) 3 non-profit Minnesota corporation.

Animal Ark maintains an agreement with our local animal control/impound center for Hastings & Rosemount to accept stray dogs that have not been reclaimed by their families. In addition, we accept sick and injured strays from within our immediate area who are in need of medical care. This collaborative relationship created the first No Kill community in Minnesota. Over the years we have also built partnerships with local municipal animal control facilities and impound centers in various communities throughout Minnesota to transfer companion animals, into our care on a regular basis. We also work with owners facing difficult situations to find rescue for their pets through Animal Ark; owner-surrendered animals are accepted from across the state of Minnesota and parts of western Wisconsin.(651) 772-8983
