Animal ark is a 38-acre-wildlife sanctuary that shelter animals that may be disadvantaged, disabled, orphaned, or unwanted. The sanctuary can be found about 30 minutes north from downtown Reno in the beautiful foothills of Red Rock, NV.
The animals are given plenty of space and, with great care from workers/volunteers, can live their lives in a nice and safe environment surrounded by love.
During every visit, I came across knowledgeable workers/volunteers that were eager to educate and witnessed their great relationships with the animals.
The ark is active in providing resources and an environment for the community to learn about wildlife, including educational videos and field trip opportunities.
The Ark hosts special events throughout the year that are enjoyed by many, including: the Stampede Mile-Marathon, Cheetah Run, pumpkin treat giving during fall, summer camp for kids, holiday events, and breakfast buffets.
Animal Ark is on my list of top ten places that help make Reno the "Biggest Little City." I am thankful for their efforts in helping animals, educating the community, & providing beautiful grounds and events for a good time.
