OUR STORY

The Ark of Grace Animal Sanctuary is located in the beautiful Hudson Valley in the state of New York. Founded in 2018 , we are a family owned sanctuary, that provides refuge for neglected, abused and abandoned animals. The work we do is hands on and founded on the belief that we have a responsibility to prevent the suffering of all animals. We believe that every animal in our care has an inherent worth and value despite their past trauma.
