How to Help.
Contact Us.

We have monthly Open Days, when you are welcome to come and see what we do and visit our cats and dogs. At other times, visits to The Ark are by prior appointment.


We are an independent registered charity (No:1014249) and receive no government or lottery help with the ever-increasing cost of our work, so we rely entirely for our income on our own efforts and on the generosity of the public. If you would like to help us by making a donation please click “Donate now” below. Thank you.

Do you enjoy being around dogs?


If so, consider joining our team of volunteer dog workers/walkers. Great fun, great people, great dogs. There’s always one or two that need that extra special touch, but you only need to do what you’re happy with and there’s always support on hand.

Special Appeals




Born: July 2012

Dave was found in a garden with his family when he was just 6 weeks old but unfortunately Dave is the only one left behind! He can be a little timid at first, but once he knows you he is really friendly! (Especially if you have some tasty treats!) Dave currently live in the communal garden room with many other cats, and has a special friend, Tilly . Dave is looking for a home with a feline companion as he is a very sociable cat. Could you offer desperate Dave of Derbyshire a new home?


We are glad to announce that Billy has now FOUND A NEW HOME!!! We Wish him and his new family well.. And hope that that enjoy their time together!
