Mission Statement

Elsa's Ark, Inc. was formed in an effort to deal with the "Hidden Hamptons," where animals are abandoned, abused, and left to die. We are a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization focusing on: 1. The rescue, rehabilitation and home placement of animals who would not be accepted into mainstream adoption programs because of age, health or temperament. 2. The spaying/neutering, safety, feeding and medical maintenance of stray animals in our community. 3. Providing care, comfort and sanctuary to elderly and infirm animals. We have rescued dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and chickens. Care for these creatures is provided in our homes as we have no shelter.


Elsa's Ark, Inc. provides a free/low-cost spay/neuter program for dogs, cats and rabbits; we provide trap-spay/neuter-taming and returning programs; we build and distribute feral cat shelters and dog houses; we coordinate & network with other animal rescue groups, including wildlife; we provide long and short-term foster care for animals in our homes (we have no shelter but are working towards this goal) as well as providing hospice/veterinarian superivsed medical care; we tame feral cats and adopt our animals out; we do take FIV/Leukemia positive cats/kittens.

Elsa's Ark is a unique and rewarding organization that takes exceptional care of lost and abandoned animals and helps reunite families with their lost pets. We adopted our sweet cat from Elsa's Ark a year ago, and we see every week how this organization makes a difference in our community in so many different ways. If you have some time and talent, bring it to the Ark: you will work with wonderful people and, more importantly, have a chance to get to know some cats and dogs and rabbits and chickens who will capture your heart. Elsa's Ark is a terrific place to volunteer your time!
