Noah's Ark Society Beginnings w blur2 dif word

Noah’s Ark Society began in 2011. We started with humble beginnings and laid a foundation that would serve as an asset to the Nashville community for years to come!

2012 was a big year for Noah’s Ark Society! Not only did we begin our equine/livestock division during this period, but we also saw an influx of animals in our care due greatly to several high profile animal seizure cases where we partnered with the community to rehab and rehome the animals in the poorest of conditions. We wouldn’t be surprised if 2012 was when Noah’s Ark Society first showed up on your radar—It was a fantastic growth period for us and led us into the next chapter of our mission!

2013 was a whirlwind to say the least! What really stands out in our minds about this calendar year is the joy we received by witnessing the fruits of our labors come to fruition. It seemed like every other day we would receive a new picture or video of a Noah’s Ark Society alum now in their forever home constantly getting happier and healthier by the day! We make sure to keep relationships with all Noah’s Ark Society animals throughout the course of their lives, and we never get tired of the updates we receive!

In 2014 and 2015, Noah’s Ark Society found its niche: helping special needs animals that may be too costly for other area rescues. For these hurt, vulnerable and endangered animals, the process of recovery doesn’t stop with rescue; behavioral, health or emotional problems mean that we are engaged throughout the journey to find these pets homes that will meet their unique needs. These cases include bottle babies, Parvo pups, wheelchair-bound animals, amputees, heartworm positive pets, seniors, the sight and/or hearing impaired, and more.

In 2016, Noah’s Ark Society realized that there is a greater need in our area for an all-animal sanctuary, a place of safety and refuge where animals can rehabilitation before being placed in foster care. In order to make this dream a reality, we began the “quiet phase” of our capital campaign. In this phase, we built our business plan, began to make connections with influential friends in the community and prepared to pitch the idea that we believe will benefit the lives of all of the Noah’s Ark Society animals.

In 2017, we are gathering resources to hit the ground running on our working sanctuary. The property that we have selected– pre-fitted with facilities that suit our needs, including a cattery and stables– would allow us to begin working with animals and the people who love them as soon as we sign the dotted line. In order to that, we are diligently meeting with potential donors in the latest step of our campaign.
