Mission Statement

Sky Ark is a nonprofit organization providing air transportation and airlift services during disasters and desperate crisis situations to the animal and humanitarian community. Sky Ark is an animal and humanitarian organization that excels in air transportation and support. We are not involved in animal rights or welfare issues. Fortunately, there are several national and local animal welfare organizations that help animals in these areas.

Description

Emergency air operations often demand the ability to respond rapidly, remain for continued support and then withdraw quickly. Sky Ark has the experience to address these types of crises rapidly. In the midst of crisis, efficiency and safety can be sustained only through professional, disciplined management and complex technical support.

Sky Ark has two animal airlift programs:

Transport during natural disasters: Over the past 2 years, Sky Ark has had numerous requests for help after floods, earthquakes, wildfires, during the Tsunami and after Hurricane Katrina/Rita/Wilma left thousands of animals without food, medical attention or shelter. The Sky Ark board has decided that our number one priority is to provide transportation to animal evacuees during disasters.

Emergency Mass Transports: "EMTs" are situations that occur when the USDA or other governmental agency has shut down a puppy mill or seized animals from deplorable conditions, or from failed animal rescue groups. Sky Ark will provide transportation to these animals, but only when there is excess funding. These animals have a high chance of being euthanized, not because no one wants them but because no one can get them to other shelters, fosters homes or adopters in other areas of the United States. Giving these animals a greater chance of survival by providing the needed transportation is motivating our desire to focus on EMTs.
