Get Involved

We currently shelter over 50+ dogs at The Ark – rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing. Helping hundreds of lost, abandoned and unwanted dogs across Barbados – none of this would be possible without YOUR help. The Ark Animal Welfare Society is a registered non-profit charity. Financially, we rely solely on donations and fundraising events – every contribution received is to help us to continue with our vital work. Aside for our kennel hands, The Ark is run by a team of loyal and devoted volunteers. Passionate about the welfare of animals, we have a NO KILL POLICY, giving each dog shelter and the highest standards of kennelling and veterinary care – caring for them indefinitely until a new home can be found.


It costs over $120,000 bds a year to run The Ark – this includes property rent, amenities, vet and food bills and kennel hand wages. We are not just an animal shelter – our outgoing finances include paying for private dog boarding, assisting others with vet and food bills and financing our neutering programmes.

ALL VOLUNTARY HELP IS WELCOMED – however long or for whatever task – one off help, or continual, is thankfully appreciated. How can YOU help?

Housing over 50+ dogs, and with an extensive waiting list, unfortunately we do not that the space to shelter anymore – and we do not have the facilities to house cats/kittens. This is how YOU can help. Have you ever thought of how fulfilling it can be to foster a rescue dog or cat? By fostering an animal in need, you are saving a life that could otherwise may have died. Every life saved is a triumph..!!  Temporary fostering can help an animal to re-adjust back into home life, and give it a better chance of settling in with its eventual new family.
