The Ark Animal Welfare Society is a non-profit registered charity formed in Barbados in 1998. (Charity No. 428)
We are a no-kill dog shelter where stray, abandoned and abused dogs get the best possible care and medical attention until they are re-homed. We have found new homes for over 100 dogs every year.
Home checks are mandatory and all dogs are spayed/neutered prior to adoption.
The Shelter is run mostly by volunteers and we are funded solely by donations and fund raising events.
At any given time, we have between 40-50 dogs in our care. Presently, we have no facility for cats; however, we will have a cattery at our new permanent home.
To date, the shelter has been renting the premises we work from; however, a piece of land has been donated to us on which we will be building our forever home.
We need your help to build a new improved and expanded facility to assist more dogs and cats in finding their forever homes and to continue promoting the importance of animal welfare in Barbados. Please give what you can to help us and we thank you in advance for your generosity.
