With more than 1,000 animals on site, our animal population is quite extensive! We provide care and treatment for exotic, wildlife and domestic animals.
Here are some of our animal friends you may see when you come visit us:
Calvin – “The Rebel”
Calvin is a 22 year old white-faced capuchin monkey, native to Central and South America. He came to Noah’s Ark in 1994, surrendered by a man who had rescued him from Calvin’s original owner.
Candy – “The Survivor”
Candy is an older chestnut horse who was found living in deplorable conditions in a junkyard in Atlanta. Badly injured by her owners, she has been nursed back to good health and spirits by our team since she arrived in 2000.
Doc & Little Anne – “The Odd Couple”
Little Anne is an American Black bear, a species native to the entire continental United States. During the severe tornadoes that devastated North Georgia in the spring of 2011, Little Anne was separated from her mother at only 2 months of age. A local church found her alone and frightened in a tree, and worked with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources to help her find a home at Noah’s Ark.
Doc the Bengal tiger was rescued from an overcrowded breeding facility. When he came to Noah’s Ark, we temporarily put Doc and Little Anne together so they could have the company of other animals, and were relieved when we saw them playing together like young cubs should. Then something strange happened. One night, before falling asleep, Anne climbed on top of Doc and began sucking on his ears, making a humming noise that soothed her right to sleep! The pair is now inseparable.
Gracie – “The Broken One”
Gracie is a blue and gold macaw who is native to central and South America. She is permanently handicapped because her pelvis was broken, and received no medical treatment to fix her injury, so the bones incorrectly fused together. To save her life, a woman brought her to Noah’s Ark where she now lives happily.
Zuri – “The Hopeless One”
Zuri is a white Bengal tiger who faces many of the health concerns most inbred animals do. It is inhumane to create unhealthy animals simply for our enjoyment or for profit, which is what drives the market for white tigers.
Although Zuri was born normal looking on the outside, she has an incredibly weak immune system and was near death when she came to live at Noah’s Ark. Zuri is now healthy enough to join the rest of the animals at the Noah’s Ark habitats.
