One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time

Much of what we do at Animal Ark to save the lives of animals and give them a second chance depends on the help of volunteers. Volunteering is fun and rewarding and it’s also a great way to help homeless animals. Just a few hours every week can make a big difference.
