We are so blessed ! Vondi’s Holistic Pet Nutrition has chosen Ark as a charity on their new community outreach page.

How their community outreach works , you can donate this nutritious food to the pups of Ark at a discounted rate and they deliver!

Fundraiser: Raffle !

Ark animal centre is raising funds to complete some building to winter proof the puppy section and build a new nursery!

But we still want our supporter to get something out, so we found something to raffle off that all animal lovers would want !

We found Puppy Pieces SA! They have the most beautiful jewellery and it’s all about the fur-babies.

We are raffling a R500 voucher , which will cover most pieces plus postal.

Each raffle will cost R25 and you can enter as many times as you like.

The raffle will run from 3 April to 29 April and the draw will be done on 30 April. The winner will be contacted via email.
