BENEFITING: ARK R A I N WILDLIFE SANCTUARY INC
WHO WE ARE
Ark RAIN Wildlife Sanctuary is a non-profit, 501-c-3 exotic and domestic animal rescue that has helped and given a permanent loving home to 100's of animals over the last 30 years. FEIN: 20-1437688
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
Five years ago, Ark RAIN Wildlife Sanctuary suffered one of the most devastating tragedies imaginable when an arsonist intentionally burned down the Co-Founders home and the indoor heated sanctuary building housing many rescued tropical and desert animals. The fire not only destroyed buildings, supplies, equipment and some wildlife habitats, it also took the lives of 56 beloved rescued animals and almost killed both of the Co-Founders who barely escaped while trying to save animals still inside.
Ark RAIN Wildlife Sanctuary, nor the Co-Founders were insured to rebuild or replace anything and lost all regular funding when the educational outreach programs ceased due to the fire but we did not give up! The sanctuary continues to care for the 50+ surviving animals. The sanctuary has not, however, been able to move forward or to continue the great rescue and conservation work we were doing prior to this horrible tragedy. The sanctuary has had to operate out of temporary portable buildings, with very limited supplies and resources, on the same property with the burned buildings still lying in ruins on the sanctuary grounds.... A daily reminder of the great loss. While still heartbroken, grieving and traumatized, the Ark RAIN Co-Founders along with a few faithful volunteers have worked harder than ever under difficult circumstances to raise enough funds for animal care each month and have been trying to work on plans for the future of the sanctuary. We have not been able to raise enough funds for relocating or rebuilding the sanctuary.
THE PHOENIX PROJECT --- WHAT IS IT AND HOW WILL IT HELP?
Today the sanctuary embarks on its biggest mission ever, The Phoenix Project : A Road to Recovery!
Based on legend and a prophetic symbol, 'The Phoenix', a bird of hope and beauty, dies in fire then rises to new life out of the ashes. The Phoenix Project is a project of hope for Ark RAIN Wildlife Sanctuary to rise from its grief and ashes and be better than ever! The purpose of the Phoenix Project is to raise all of the funds necessary to relocate the sanctuary to a more secluded and secure property and to rebuild so that the sanctuary can continue the mission of rescuing exotic and domestic animals in need and give them the best care and a permanent place to live out their lives in peace and safety!
The Phoenix Project can be successful with help from animal lovers like you! You can be a wildlife hero right now by making a donation toward the relocation project and by asking others to help so that the sanctuary can recover from the fire tragedy. Thank you!
HOW WILL THE FUNDS BE USED THAT ARE RAISED IN THE PHOENIX PROJECT
All funds that are raised in The Phoenix Project will be put into a special account for the relocation project. When we reach our funding goal, these donations will go to purchase land, security fencing and a large permanent building for the tropical animals in the winter and to make any land improvements neccessary if certain amentites are not available such as well, septic, electric, roads, etc. If any funds are left over, they will go toward rebuilding animal exhibits that can not be relocated with the sanctuary because of state laws such as the lion and tiger exhibits.
