The Ark Animal Rescue
Promotions And Notices
Most of our Cattery is now OPEN to the public following the recent outbreak of cat flu. Most cats are now available to be seen but please bear with us if access is denied to any area until we’re 100% in the clear.
If anybody is planning on sending donations of money, please think of paying money straight into our vet account by ringing 01472 840209 and you can pay over the phone. Due to the outbreak of cat flu we had a large vet bill and any donations will help enormously. Also, please read our appeal for Rory on our Latest News page
PLEASE NOTE, WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT, WE HAVE HAD TO STOP USING DUVETS, BLANKETS, PILLOWS, CUSHIONS ETC. We’ve received notice to find another way of disposing of duvets etc. so please we can now only use fleece blankets or ones that will wash and dry easily, also Vetbeds and knitted blankets. This has meant a whole change to our system We now have 3 washing machines running daily so donations of washpowder would be very much appreciated. Thank you
Fleece blankets and vet beds

Gentle Reminder – Opening Times
Can we please remind people that the Ark is now closed every Thursday only as the office will be manned the rest of the week, including weekends, so no visitors or drop-offs of bedding etc. on Thursdays please. Boarders can still come in and be collected and animals going out for adoption can be collected but our reduced staff on this day cannot deal with any other visitors as well as care properly for the animals.
Cat of the Month
Since starting our Dog of the Month page we had so much success with rehoming our featured dogs, that we decided to start a Cat of the Month page too and have had similar success.
We are having THREE Cats of the Month for January to try and find forever homes for cats with a medical issue, Nutmeg on left, Sid & Roy, on right.
Collection Of Adopted Animals
Unfortunately, we’re not able to offer a transport service to new owners as we don’t have the numbers of staff or volunteers to do this without taking them away from vital work at the Ark. New owners are asked to make their own arrangements for collection, including long-distance ones. Also, we’ve had a spate of people not collecting the animal they’ve reserved. If you change your mind for whatever reason, please tell us straight away. We’d rather know as it prevents an animal missing out on another home while it waits to be collected and helps us plan our available space for animals needing rescue.
