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.

Quote of the Month

Happiness comes when you are not seeking it

Happiness is strange; it comes when you are not seeking it. When you are not making an effort to be happy, then unexpectedly, mysteriously, happiness is there, born of purity, of a loveliness of being.

Krishnamurti, Think on These Things |

When you separate yourself, it breeds violence

When you separate yourself by belief, nationality or tradition, it breeds violence. So one who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, religion or political party, but is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.

Krishnamurti, Freedom From the Known
