Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary


A No-Kill Shelter

Happy Endings!

BANDIT was bounding, jumping and out of control when he first came to live at Noah's Ark.  We thought he would never find a home if he didn't learn to behave... so off to the trainer he went to learn manners.  He succeeded so well that he is now working as a service dog for someone who has epileptic seizures.  Good Boy Bandit!!

KAYLA has been living with us for about 7 months now, and you would not believe how much she has grown. She weighs about 55 lbs. now and she still has another 3 or 4 months left to grow! She is a happy healthy puppy and she LOVES her new home. She spends her days lazing around in the shade and chasing squirrels and rabbits. Thank God she hasn't caught one yet. She knows all kinds of tricks, like fetch and pick-the-hand and high five and sit and lay down to name a few. She is also a wonderful protector! She is truly a blessing in our lives!  Thanks So Much!  Richard & Peggy McIlveene

HERSHEY'S KISSES:  From Rags To Riches!!  We adopted Hershey's Kisses (who became Noah Montgomery) in December 2001. He was set to be euthanized at Montgomery County animal shelter due to testing positive for heartworms. His guardian angel miraculously placed him with Noah's Ark. (His name came from Montgomery County and Noah's Ark Sanctuary).  We found him on the internet and his name caught our eye.  We went to look at him and instantly fell in love with him.  We adopted him on a Saturday morning and immediately took him on a shopping spree at Petco.  He got to pick out food, collar, leash, bowls, hat and a beautiful new sweater. As he was picking out his new goodies he was standing tall and proud in the basket as though he was a king. We just laughed because he had gone from rags to riches in a single day.  Erin Hunt

TABITHA:  I just wanted to let you know that Tabitha has adjusted very well to her new home. She is eating well and has made friends with our other dog. She sleeps with my eleven year old daughter. The children all love her greatly and she goes everywhere with us.  Last weekend we took her to my daughter's soccer game and she was the hit of the game. She was lavished with attention by the 15 ten and eleven year old girls. Last night she joined us at a hot dog roast that we sponsored for our church's youth group. She had a great time playing with the 50 or so children there. She was especially loved by an 18 month baby that was also at the party.  Tabitha is a wonderful addition to our family and we all feel honored to have her.  We are lucky to have found her.  Sincerely,  Jill Bohannon

Hi. My name is BUFFY and I am an Aussie Shepherd and Chow mix. I was adopted by Dick and Nancy in February of 2000 at the PETCO on FM1960 in Houston, TX. That day Mom and Dad  decided to just go riding around and look at dogs that could be adopted. They had seen my picture on Noah's Ark website, but Mom thought she wanted a younger dog (I was about  10 months old). The only problem with that was, they fell totally in love with me when they saw me in person. I went home with them that very day. 

We live in a house with a fenced in back yard, so I can go outside without a leash. Dad usually takes me for walks around the neighborhood during the day and in the evening. Sometimes Mom goes too. The children in our neighborhood like to pet me cause I'm so soft. I lie on my belly and smile at them. My smile looks like a snarl, except that my tail wags and my body wiggles.

I am very friendly, but shy. I don't like to get wet, so Dad and Mom have a difficult time getting me to go outside when it is raining or the sprinkler is going. I am afraid of noisy monsters like the one that eats dirt off the carpet and the one that eats the grass. I like to play fetch with my rawhide chewy. Whenever one of them is working at the computer, I lay under the desk so none of those monsters can get to me.  Thank you Noah's Ark for being there for me and helping me find such a loving family to adopt.BUFFY





Hi, my name is Crystal Lynn and I am an American Eskimo. I was adopted by Linda and John this last November at the Petco on 1960 in Houston, Texas. I have 2 sisters who are also American Eskimo named Tiney Sue and Kimmie Jo, and a brother named JakeCRYSTAL LYNN James, who is an 80 lb. Black Labrador Retriever

 We have a big fenced in yard so I love to run and play with Jake and Kimmie. Tiney, the older Eskie, avoids me because she is kinda old and can’t tolerate me because I am too wild. I am learning to walk on a leash and trying to get house-trained. I am doing really good. I have learned to go to the door when I need to go out. I have never had toys before so I love to play with my new toys and chew on my chewies. I think I got real lucky getting into this home!CRYSTAL LYNN
