My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Ekko, is a nice dog and a goofball. He is active and would like some interaction.
BUT he has some problems. He owns stuff and he wants to keep it. This dog needs to get to know and trust you, so no kids, cats and needs experienced adopters who have knowledge about resource guarding.

Ark Rescue dogs are available for adoption to homes in the Alabama and Tennessee Valley area only. We do require a secure fenced-in yard to adopt our larger dogs.

Additional adoption info

All our adoptable pets are fully vaccinated, de-wormed, spayed/neutered, had a wellness test with our
Vet and are on monthly flea/tick and heartworm prevention.

If you decide to adopt one of our pets, you will have a two week trial time, in which both sides can see if you get along.

If it should not work out, which sometimes happens, we will take our pet back and give you a full refund.

For our larger and active dogs you would be required to have a fenced in yard.
Our pets are adopted out in the Huntsville area and Tennessee Valley only.

More about this shelter

The Ark was incorporated as a non-profit, “no kill” animal shelter on March 6, 1990 by Nina Beal.

The Ark’s mission statement is...

To rescue as many homeless animals as possible.
To provide all veterinary care for each animal to include spaying/neutering before adoption.
To maintain a no kill policy except for reasons of mercy or dangerous temperament.
To promote humane treatment of animals through a humane education program.

The Ark provides all veterinarian preventatives to include: juvenile spay/neuter, shelter,
food and a loving “at home” environment for rescued animals while they wait to be adopted into a new loving home.

The Ark operates solely on donations and fundraisers and receives no city, county, state or federal funding.
The Ark also has no paid employees. Volunteers from the community help out at the shelter caring for the
rescued animals as well as returning telephone calls. If not for caring citizens, the Ark could not operate.

The Ark is much more than an animal shelter.
The Ark serves our community by:

Rescuing sick, abandoned and injured animals; Constructing and maintaining the first no-kill animal shelter in Huntsville;

Entering into an Agreement of Understanding with Hope Place to care for and protect the pets of domestic violence victims who are seeking refuge at Hope Place;
Entering into an agreement of understanding with the American Red Cross to provide a
Disaster Animal Relief Team to enter tornado areas to help victims with injured and lost pets;
Entering into an agreement of understanding with the American Red Cross to care for the pets of home fire victims;
Rescuing as many animals as possible from the City Animal Control Shelter before they are put to death;
Starting the first juvenile animal spay/neuter program to ensure ALL animals adopted from the ARK are spayed or neutered before adoption;
Promoting public awareness of the importance of pet owner responsibility through our Channel 31 Needy Paws Telethon;
Providing pet therapy in nursing homes and humane education in schools.
