Cloa’s Ark is a not-for-profit animal sanctuary in Hadley, MA.

We provide exceptional care for neglected, rejected, abandoned or abused animals by giving them love, great food, shelter and medical treatment if needed.

We create a natural interaction between animals and humans by giving them exceptional living conditions, the closest to what they need and like, allowing a mutual trust so they can heal from the past and live in peace, joy and harmony.


What is the difference between a sanctuary and a shelter? 

A sanctuary is a permanent home for animals that have been rescued from abusive or neglectful situations, while a shelter is a temporary home for animals that are waiting to be adopted. Sanctuaries often provide large, open spaces where animals can roam and socialize with others of their kind, and they may specialize in caring for specific species or types of animals. Sanctuaries are usually run by nonprofit organizations and rely on donations to support their operations.
