Special Thanks to…

Our Community Supporters…

It was our pleasure to meet with members of the Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers, Chapter 050.  This wonderful group worked to raise money for Nova’s Ark and presented us with a substantial donation (pictured below).  Many thanks to this amazing group who have continued to support us for 3 years running.  You truly make a difference!

thank-youWe’d also like to recognize, Scott from CMC-Chapter 50 who canvassed his workplace to support Nova’s Ark as a worthy charity.  As a result, Nova’s Ark was the lucky recipient of a $5,000.00  donation from The Tenaquip Foundation on behalf of the employees of SCN Industrial and Tenaquip Ltd in Ajax.  We are so very grateful for his assistance and for the support of The Tenaquip Foundation.  


Volunteers above and beyond!

Now that the winter weather has arrived, many of our therapy animals have moved inside to warm havens in the barn and other outbuildings.  This is the time when major work can be done to outside enclosures.  Last week, our long-time volunteer Declan arrived to head a crew to clear the guinea pig enclosure.  Declan manned the tractor, while his faithful crew of youth volunteers moved out over 30 wheelbarrows of manure.  It was hard, smelly work and these amazing volunteers worked all day in -10 C weather.  The result…a guinea pig enclosure all ready for Spring!

  Our Volunteers are simply the BEST!!! ♥pizap.com14533092993161-Volunteers
