The Ark is self sustainable and money is our BIGGEST need. All of our operating revenue comes from donations, fundraising and adoption fees.
One major use of these funds is to pay the sizable bills we accumulate healing and caring for the animals. Donations can be made to our general fund or you can sponsor a specific animal in need.
Other funds are used to cover foster home costs, marketing, education, and community assistance, such as a low cost spay and neuter clinic. We are also happy to accept donations of pet supplies. Some examples are collars (no choke or prong collars), leashes, toys, especially Kongs, pet food, and crates. If you would like to donate supplies please contact us to find out current needs.

Making a Bequest of Your Retirement Assets
A retirement asset, such as an IRA account, makes an excellent bequest to us. If the IRA were given to your family, much of the value may be lost through estate and income taxes. By designating The Ark of San Juan Rescue as the beneficiary of all or part of your IRA (using a beneficiary designation form provided by your custodian), the full value of the gift is transferred tax-free at your death and your estate receives an estate tax charitable deduction.
