Meet Rio!

Rio and her puppies were saved from a high kill shelter in Southern California. They were literally...out of time. Rio and her babies were so unbelievably sick with kennel cough that we weren't sure if all of the babies would make it. Thankfully, they were under the care of an amazing foster family, that really dug deep and spent sleepless days and nights making sure these little ones and their mama would push through.

Rio is quite the character. She loves children, men, women, other dogs...cats - can definitely be integrated with a dog savvy cat. Her current foster describes her as; athletic, silly, fun, playful, loves routine, protector of her family, loves to take walks and hike. Rio has probably not had much experience with structure and balance and she would benefit greatly from that kind of environment. She has been a loving momma and has endured so much in her life...the mama's need forever love too!

A home check, contract and adoption fee is required to adopt Rio. Rio is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

About The Ark Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

It is estimated that each year 4-6 million animals are euthanized in the United States. This is mostly due to over-population of animals and there is simply not enough room in the shelters. Innocent animals are dying everyday including puppies and pregnant mothers.

Many people are not aware of this sad reality. Our goal is to not only save lives, but to help spread awareness about this problem and promote adoption.

The Ark Animal Rescue was founded in 2011 by Brittany Modica-Birtwell.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask that each person fill out an application prior to setting up a meet and greet. We want to make sure that it will be a good match before moving forward. All adopters must be at least 21 years of age and have the ability to provide and care for an animal.

At the time of the adoption, we also have a contract that both parties must sign.

Each adoption comes with a vet exam, spay or neuter, de-worming, vaccines and a micro-chip. Our fees are considered "donations" and can be used as a tax write-off.
