Who We Are

ABOUT US... The Noah Program is a 501c-3 non-profit organization that began at Ark Animal Hospital in 1994. Our mission is to provide medical care and treatment to critically injured stray animals and wildlife of our area. Once treated, domestic animals are then put up for adoption and wildlife are released back into their native habitat.

WE ARE NOT A SHELTER... We currently operate out of Ark Animal Hospital with very limited space. Unfortunately, we cannot accept every pet in need. We must limit our services to those animals who are most critically injured. The Noah Program has no paid employees. We have two volunteers who are employed full-time by the Hospital. Everything they do is on their own time - lunch hour or after work. Please do not be discouraged if it takes a couple of days for you to get a response to your phone message or application. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

NOAHS ARE SPECIAL... Animals that have been treated by The Noah Program are referred to as "Noahs". They need exceptional care and love. Some may be missing a leg or an eye or have a limp. Others may need daily medications, a special diet, or continual treatment. Even so, they deserve a forever home and someone to care for them. If you would like to open your home to one of these special pets, please fill out an adoption application.
All animals are up to date on vaccinations at the time of adoption. Cats are Felv/Fiv negative and dogs have been tested for heartworms and started on prevention. All animals are spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. Noah Program pets are adopted to INDOOR HOMES ONLY. If you have any questions, please contact us at (843) 238-1414.
