At Ark Animals, we focus on rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of animals in need however we rely on our various other services to fund this work. All profits made from our other services go straight into the upkeep and maintenance of the animals with us at Ark Animals and we thank your for your support.


Interactive experiences such as Creature Capers, Cuddle Companions or Educational Programmes work with animals who are carefully selected from our own, private collection at Ark Animals and only animals who are experienced with human interaction and are selected to become involved in these services.

The wellbeing of our animals is our top priority and we take them as individuals into account before allowing them to be included in an interaction service. This may mean that some animals may be absent from various packages, at the time of booking, due to individual situations such as being in the process of shed/moult, medical treatments, feeding schedules etc.

No animals held within the Ark Animals rescue, who are in the process of rehabilitation or looking for their forever homes are not included in any service, to provide them with a stress free lifestyle when remaining with us at the rescue.
