Donate to ARK

Animal Refuge Kansai (ARK) acts as a safety net for homeless, abandoned animals or those otherwise in need of help. ARK actively rescues animals, provides them with the care needed and search for a new family to give them a second chance at happiness. However, it is not just rescue work that ARK does. ARK aims to educate and spread awareness about animal welfare, the importance of spaying and neutering animals, and the need to revise current animal welfare laws.

By becoming an ARK member or by sponsoring, you can help us continue on our mission of rescuing and rehoming more animals in need.
