Help Rescued Horses Heal And Thrive Fund
Wouldn’t you like to partner with Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary to provide the best care possible for rescued horses that need our help? About 120 of the roughly 1,500 rescued animals that Noah’s Ark cares for are horses, including minis, Mustangs, Clydesdales, Arabians and more. These horses came to our care due to neglect, abuse, abandonment as well as their owners’ inability to take care of them. A few were formerly performing horses that are now too old or could not handle the pressure of performing. Some were even saved from going to slaughter when they came to Noah’s Ark as their forever home. Meet our beloved Bella. Bella arrived at Noah’s Ark, along with another horse named Dallas, in 2016. Unfortunately, Bella was in much worse shape than Dallas. Bella was extremely thin and had lost hair due to fungal growth covering the majority of her body. Bella’s body condition was ranked a 1 (with 10 being ideal) by our veterinarian and her overgrown hooves made it difficult to walk. She was also so malnourished, dehydrated and debilitated that survival wasn’t guaranteed once she arrived at Noah’s Ark. Even in her critical state, her fiery, sassy personality was evident and that gave us hope that she would pull through. For the first week after her rescue, Bella was closely monitored by our veterinarians and animal care staff. She was fed a specialized diet in small amounts every 4 hours to avoid refeeding syndrome (a potentially fatal condition that can lead to heart, kidney and respiratory system failure caused by overwhelming the digestive and metabolic systems that are significantly impaired by prolonged starvation). Bella responded well to her treatment and over the next 10 months slowly returned to a healthy weight. She continues to thrive at Noah’s Ark and is now a healthy, happy horse whose fiery temperament matches her beautiful chestnut red coat. Her most recent owner did love her very much and had actually rescued Bella from a person who had mistreated her. Unfortunately, the rescuer simply couldn’t afford to feed Bella and provide her with the necessary vaccinations and other preventative treatments to return her to good health and to keep her healthy. HOW CAN YOU HELP TO SUPPORT HORSES RESCUED FROM SIMILAR CONDITIONS? It costs about $53 a month to care for each horse, not including medical, staff or facility related costs. With over 120 horses that we currently care for, the costs to feed, vaccinate, deworm as well as farrier services alone add up--$76,000 per year. As a non-profit, we rely on the generosity of supporters like you to be able to provide our equine friends with the best possible care. Every horse that we take in will live at Noah’s Ark’s 250-acre facility for the remainder of their life and our mission is to make their lives the best life possible. We ask you to partner with us to help these precious animals at Noah’s Ark by donating toward our $25,000 goal that will be designated specifically for the care of our equine friends that are fortunate enough to make it to Noah’s Ark. The donations will be used to pay costs to feed, vaccinate, deworm as well as farrier services. We would appreciate it so much if you would donate toward the care of these creatures that cannot take care of themselves so that they can enjoy their remaining years in peace, comfort, and the best health possible. Be sure to designate your donation to ‘Help Rescued Horses Heal and Thrive Fund.’ Donations made in the United States are tax deductible. We could not exist without the kindness and generosity of our supporters like you.

Help 8-year-old Pari to Support Rescued Exotic and Domestic Animals Fund

Help 8-year-old Pari to Support Rescued Exotic and Domestic Animals Fund
“Help me support the wild and abused animals that were rescued and now live at Noah's Ark Sanctuary in Locust Grove, Georgia. My name in Pari and I am 8 years old and a 3rd grader” says Pari Shah. Pari is the daughter of Karishma Shah, a Cisco Systems (Cisco) employee and is a pen pal of Cisco employee, Rita Whitehouse, who is an animal advocate. Pari and Rita’s friendship began last year during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, when employees as well as family members were struggling with social distancing. The friendship that bloomed with an exchange of letters and cards is now a source of empowerment for Pari. When Rita started sharing books and videos on the rescued animals at the sanctuary, it gave Pari a purpose and empowered her to become an advocate for these rescued, abused and special needs animals. After reading a book about the BLT (Bear, Lion and Tiger) at Noah’s Ark, Pari fell in love with these three animals and quickly reached for her change purse and told her mom, “Please send this change and dollars to help the animals at Noah’s Ark” and this has now turned into a public fundraising effort to support these wonderful beauties and other rescued animals at the sanctuary. Pari’s favorite is Baloo, American black bear, that was rescued with Leo, African Lion, and Shere Khan, Bengal tiger, by Noah’s Ark in 2001, after they were discovered by police officers in a basement of an Atlanta home during a drug raid. At only a few months old, all three cubs were frightened, malnourished, and infected with internal and external parasites when the Georgia Department of Natural Resources brought them to Noah’s Ark. In addition to treating them physically and providing them with a proper diet, the keepers ensured that Baloo and his friends were kept active, alert, stimulated and comfortable. Baloo is now 18 years old—that’s a lot of enrichment! Baloo enjoys batting around his huge ball that is specifically designed to be safe fun for large exotic animals. And he loves his big Rubbermaid bathtub filled with toys. Pari enjoys watching videos of Baloo who is her favorite animal (see web link below to a video of Baloo taking a bath). Other enrichment activities are gym sets, large Rubbermaid tubs, feeder puzzles, hiding food to encourage foraging and multi-level decks for the primates, stainless steel skewers with fresh fruits for the parrots and primates, Kong toys, grapevine wreaths, large wicker baskets, structures for hiding (porcupines and foxes)……the options are numerous! But the cost of some of these items, like the gym sets and big balls for the bears and tigers is great. It is important to provide a variety of enrichment to prevent boredom and frustration. The funds required to provide this much needed component of their care can be significant. Noah’s Ark cares about the mental health, physical health and wellness of its forever residents. Enrichment is about creating choices for animals so they feel more in control of their environment and can support their positive mental welfare and encourage natural behaviors in captive animals. Many of the wild animals that Noah’s Ark has rescued had never touched grass, dirt or trees before coming to their forever home at Noah’s Ark. Noah’s Ark’s mission has always been inspired by the magic of connecting children and animals. Children are the future stewards of our planet. Pari has most definitely injected herself as a true champion for rescued animals. Wouldn’t you like to partner with Pari to help Noah’s Ark continue their mission? Like Baloo, most of the rescued animals at Noah’s Ark will spend their remaining days in peace at a place that truly cares for their well-being. Baloo is our champion to raise money to help care for all of the very special residents at Noah’s Ark, which include big cats, wolves, primates, hoof-stock, parrots, reptiles and more, many of which were severely abused or abandoned before their arrival to the sanctuary. Please partner with Pari to help these precious animals at Noah’s Ark by donating toward her $10,000 goal that will be designated specifically for the care of these rescued animals that are fortunate enough to make it to Noah’s Ark. The donations will be used to pay for a continuous variety of enrichment toys/activities and other animal-related costs for their well-being and comfort. Pari would appreciate it so much if you would donate toward the care of these creatures that cannot take care of themselves so that they can enjoy their remaining years in peace, comfort, and the best health possible. Be sure to designate your donation to Help Pari to Support Wild and Domestic Animals in Captivity. Donations made in the United States are tax deductible.

Care they need, love they deserve. Wouldn’t you like to partner with Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary to provide enrichment for rescued exotic and domestic animals?

Help Rescued Animals Enjoy Well Being And Comfort Fund
Zuri is a female white Bengal tiger who was surrendered in 2011 by a breeder who was days away from euthanizing her because of her extreme and costly, and seemingly incurable, medical issues. Luckily, she was rescued by Noah’s Ark Animal Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary (Noah’s Ark) in Locust Grove, GA. When three-year old Zuri first arrived at Noah’s Ark, she was underweight, covered in ringworm, and was 90% hairless. After months of treatment and TLC, her fur began to grow back and she gained weight. Zuri is just one example of how Noah’s Ark embraces the care of rescued animals. Noah’s Ark is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located on 250 beautiful wooded acres that provides forever homes for more than 1,500 rescued animals from over 100 different species, including both exotic and domestic animals, as well as native wildlife. Noah's Ark provides their animals with large habitats that always have the animals' best interests in mind and that mimic their natural environments. This allows the animals to live out the rest of their lives in as stress free as possible, loving environments where they receive the best of care. I am in the finance organization at Cisco Systems and have volunteered and fundraised for this amazing organization for nine years. Like Zuri, most of the rescued animals at Noah’s Ark will spend their remaining days in peace at a place that truly cares for their well-being. I have chosen Zuri to be the champion to raise money to help care for all of our very special residents at Noah’s Ark, which include big cats, wolves, primates, hoof-stock, parrots, reptiles and more, many of which were severely abused or abandoned before their arrival to the sanctuary. Despite recovering from the ringworm, Zuri was recently diagnosed with melanoma. Zuri is a perfect example of how unpredictable the health of an animal can be and how costly it is to care for rescued animals. I ask you to partner with me to help these precious animals at Noah’s Ark by donating toward my $10,000 goal that will be designated specifically for the care of our rescued animals that are fortunate enough to make it to Noah’s Ark. The donations will be used to pay for medications, specialty food, enrichment, extra bedding, veterinarian bills, and other necessary animal-related costs. I would appreciate it so much if you would donate toward the care of these creatures that cannot take care of themselves so that they can enjoy their remaining years in peace, comfort and the best health possible. Be sure to designate your donation to ‘Animal Residents.’ Donations made in the United States are tax deductible. Also, Noah’s Ark is vetted by Cisco Systems to receive Cisco matching funds for donations made by Cisco employees. So, if you are a Cisco employee, please be sure to request a Cisco match through Bright Funds for your donation, thus doubling your impact on these animals.

Help Rescued Wild Animals Enjoy Their Golden Years Fund
At 30+ years old, Gideon, the Syrian brown bear, is considered a geriatric sanctuary resident. Luckily, he was rescued by Noah’s Ark Animal Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary (Noah’s Ark) in Locust Grove, GA in 2014 from a zoo that had been shut down by the authorities due to its history of abuse and neglect of its animal tenants. Noah’s Ark is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located on 250 beautiful wooded acres that provides forever homes for more than 1,500 rescued animals from over 100 different species, including both exotic and domestic animals, as well as native wildlife. Noah's Ark provides their animals with large habitats that always have the animals' best interests in mind and that mimic their natural environments. This allows the animals to live out the rest of their lives in as stress free as possible, loving environments where they receive the best of care. I am in the finance organization at Cisco Systems and have volunteered and fundraised for this amazing organization for eight years. Many of the rescued animals at Noah’s Ark are in their golden years and thankfully, they are able to spend their remaining days in peace at a place that truly cares for their well-being. I have chosen Gideon to be the champion to raise money to help care for these very special geriatric residents at Noah’s Ark, which include big cats, primates, hoof-stock, parrots, reptiles and more, many of which were severely abused or abandoned before their arrival to the sanctuary. Despite Gideon’s severe arthritis from the concrete living conditions he endured for decades at his previous home, he’s able to navigate through his custom habitat quite well and is often seen greeting his keepers and guests or napping in his tub. Here is a link to a video which shows Gideon when he entered his new habitat for the first time (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLnit4W50Mo ). Tears come to my eyes every time I watch it as I think of what it would be like to live nearly three decades in a concrete cell, and then one day be rescued into what must seem to Gideon like bear paradise with his own hay filled house, pool, deep bedding for digging and playing in and of course, lots and lots of toys. I ask you partner with me to help these precious older animals at Noah’s Ark by donating toward my $10,000 goal that will be designated for the care of the geriatric animals that are lucky enough to live at Noah’s Ark. The donations will be used to pay for medications, specialty food, enrichment, extra bedding, veterinarian bills, and other necessary costs. I would appreciate it so much if you would donate toward the care of the geriatric animals at Noah’s Ark to help these beautiful animals to enjoy their remaining years in comfort. Be sure to designate your donation to ‘geriatric residents.’ Donations made in the United States are tax deductible. Also, Noah’s Ark is vetted by Cisco Systems to receive Cisco matching funds for donations made by Cisco employees. So, if you are a Cisco employee, please be sure to request a Cisco match for your donation, thus doubling your impact on these animals. Noah’s Ark is open to the public. I hope that you come to visit! I appreciate your time. Additional information: Noah’s Ark is home to the Bear, Lion and Tiger (BLT) who were rescued together in 2001. Baloo (bear) and Shere Khan (tiger) still live together in their habitat with Leo (lion) in his final resting place. Noah’s Ark is the only place documented where these three species live together in harmony.
