ARK is well known as the pioneer of true animal welfare in Japan. Our founder, Elizabeth Oliver, brought enlightened views from Britain - famous for its robust animal laws and love of animals - and integrated them into Japanese society. ARK has brought know-how from around the world on rescuing, caring for and rehoming animals. Decades of hard work and dedication, along with refusal to compromise on our standards of care have brought ARK to where we are. We need your help to ensure we can continue to build a kinder world for animals.
