We are forever grateful for the amazing support of our volunteers who visit us at the Ark to help us care for our wonderful dogs. While the Ark is open every day, our biggest volunteer day is Saturday when many friends visit us to help walk the dogs, feed them and generally give them lots of attention and love. We hope you enjoy these photos of our volunteers and furry friends!
Saturday July 7th – What an amazing day up at The Ark!! Besides Gerad, Dwayne and Dominique, we had altogether 19 volunteers who helped with the walking, grooming, feeding and of course giving our wonderful dogs/pups lots and lots of love and attention. Special thanks to Melanie from Barbados Surf Trips for thinking of us and encouraging these teenagers from WB Surf Camp in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina to give of their time. From all of us at The Ark (including all of our 4-legged friends) a huge THANK YOU!!
