Our shelter, the ARK, is located in North Augusta and provides a temporary home for stray and abandoned animals until they are rehabilitated and are adopted into a fur-ever, stable, and secure home. The animals are treated medically and emotionally in preparation for adoption so that they will have the best chance they can in being successful in their new home. We are "no kill" in the sense that we don't euthanize to make room for other animals. Because of this, we always have a full shelter. Our adoption fee is $75 for puppies and kittens and $95 for adult cats and dogs. Our rescues are wormed, microchipped, tested for heartworms, spayed or neutered (if of age), and are given all vaccinations. Cats are tested for feline leukemia. We reduce adoption fees for military or retired military individuals and/or families. We also provide senior discounts to those who need it.
