Welcome to Ark Animal Centre


We are the leading puppy shelter of South Africa. We are a non-profit organisation specialising in puppies, pregnant mom’s and small breed dogs, based less than 10 minutes from Fourways/Dainfern, Johannesburg South Africa.

We are renowned for having a happy, loving and social environment with a great sense of community. Our puppies are also always happy and willing to greet everyone with a wagging tail and sloppy kisses.

Our aim is to change the consciousness in attitude of people towards animals in South Africa through education and awareness and to promote animal welfare & animal rights. Sterilisation is everything!
