We survive solely through donations, grants and fundraising and the tireless efforts of a dedicated band of volunteers.
Every donation, however small, helps us look after the dogs and cats in our care.
Every dollar and every gift we receive is used for the benefit of our animals.

Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible.

We issue tax receipts in late July every year.  If you would like a receipt before then, please email us at info@southerndownsark.com.au
For your peace of mind, ARK is an incorporated non-profit animal welfare charity.
We are registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, the national regulator of charities in Australia.
