Love around the world

The rescue of homeless animals is a world wide endeavor. Rescue groups from across the world connect with organizations like Animal Ark, to bring dogs to Minnesota to find their forever homes. This would not be possible without sponsors like Subaru, whose Love Promise supports our mission. This is Spike’s story. Hi, my name is Spike. I am a shy handsome 2 year old Saluki mix pup. If you are not familiar with this breed, it is a breed commonly found in the country of Oman. When I was a small pup I traveled on a big airplane with my brother Digger and a few other canine friends to find our forever families. Animal Ark took us in, gave us a warm place to stay, and showed us the world does not have to be a scary place. I learned to walk on a leash, take rides in a car, and trust my volunteers who came to play with me. The world is still scary sometimes, but I found a family who loves me just as I am. Together, we will have more adventures in this beautiful place called Minnesota. If you are looking for a shy handsome boy like me, my brother Digger is still looking for his family.

Love Connection

Hi, my name is Squirt and I am a very special cat. I was found by a local farmer, who could tell I needed some medical help and a warm place to stay. Animal Ark took me in, gave me a warm bed, plenty to eat and medical care. I was found to be a special boy with Cerebellar Hypoplasia. I am not sure what those big words mean, but it causes me to wobble a bit. My new family found me at the Ark, and fell in love with my specialness. They researched my special condition and were determined to adopt me. I am now thriving in my new home. My happy ending is all due to sponsors like Walser Subaru St. Paul, who help Animal Ark rescue special needs animals like me! Thank you

These funds will help over 45 people change their lives for good.

Bringing Hope to Women & Families

At Guiding Star Wakota we see so many women and their families in need of love, support, and encouragement. Clients come through our doors in need of diapers and wipes, and to their surprise, find out about our many opportunities we offer here at Guiding Star Wakota. We offer everything from pregnancy tests, parenting and budgeting classes to life coaching. There is nothing better than seeing a family light up when they find hope in a situation in which they once felt hopeless or helpless. We had a client come in feeling downhearted and dejected. There was so much going on in her life and she just kept saying "I'm here for positivity.” Our staff watched as our life coach was able to walk through her past, offer her encouragement and find that positive spirit she was looking for. After life coaching and a pep talk with our business coach, that same client left so inspired, that she ran home to work on her business. It was such a gift to see her come back the next week for our client-led art therapy class. She was so excited about the many things she has been working on since her life and business coaching. With your phenomenal donation through the Share the Love event, we are able to help so many more women and their families, in the Twin Cities and the surrounding suburbs.

Showing Some Love for Youth

The dreary days days of February were a bit brighter thanks to the generosity and kindness of our friends at Walser Subaru St. Paul who put together "Show Some Love" kits personalized for youth participants in programs at The Bridge. Crafted with love just in time for Valentines Day, the kits included journals, pens, coloring books, chocolate/candy, and a personal note to remind youth today and everyday they are loved.

Walser Subaru St. Paul partnered with Second Harvest Heartland, the Midwest's largest Hunger Relief organization, in a Drive To End Hunger during the month of October.

Shop For A Cause

People are genuinely excited to learn about these organizations and give back, especially in this time of heightened need. Covid-19 has profoundly impacted nonprofits and communities. The unpredictability of canceled or virtual fundraising events, loss of sponsors, and overall staffing issues have created concern in the nonprofit sector. We’re proud to make this impact at a key time in the communities where we live and work.

Broken dog in a Crate

Otto embodied the type of worst-case scenario Animal Ark sees all-too-often. But his case was so severe it shocked even us. This English/French bulldog mix was found abandoned in a crate along I-94 in Minneapolis. A Good Samaritan found Otto and brought him to our shelter. Abandonment is cruel under any circumstances, but when combined with Otto’s obvious physical and emotional neglect, even our seasoned staff wept in sadness and anger. Otto was in horrible physical condition. He was severely dehydrated, peeing blood, and suffered from Lyme disease. What’s more, Otto had just one functional eye and exhibited aggression toward cats, dogs and small children. Otto found three separate homes but was returned each time due to his aggression issues. Just about the time we resigned ourselves to Otto being a full-time, forever resident of our shelter, a woman dropped by the shelter to meet him. There’s a certain breed of pet owner in the world that seeks challenging cases like Otto’s. This second Good Samaritan in Otto’s life welcomed him into her home and gave him just the right mix of love, patience and discipline. Otto is well on his way to becoming a stellar canine. For Otto, the fourth time was a charm. He is happy, healthy and increasingly well-behaved in his forever home. Many shelters would have chosen euthanasia for Otto due to his physical and behavioral challenges. Not Animal Ark: We gave him the medical care, patience and TLC he needed ‘til he found his forever home. Subaru’s gift to our shelter allows us to focus on Otto’s needs without adding the worry of financial constraints. We are proud to partner with Walser Subaru St Paul in this event and in future events when COVID no longer keeps us apart. Thank you from Animal Ark and all the future Otto’s we can save!
