The ARK rehabilitates hundreds of sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife each year. Our goal is to return these animals to their natural habitats as soon as they are able to live independently. We also provide an educational resource to all people of the State of Michigan so we may promote a better understanding, treatment, and appreciation of Michigan's wildlife population.


Our program focuses on the following objectives:

  • to provide the best possible medical and first aid treatment to all animals brought to the center

  • to provide quality nutrition and appropriate housing to all animals in our care

  • to humanely euthanize any animal that is beyond help and hope

  • to provide educational information to the general public when they call for assistance with injured, orphaned, sick, or "nuisance" wildlife

  • to provide educational information to veterinarians and other professionals who come into contact with wildlife throughout Michigan

  • to release animals back into the wild in proper release sites, carefully selected to optimize the survival of the animal and to have minimal impact on humans

  • to educate adults and children through our slide presentations and educational displays

The A.R.K. will NOT be admitting any birds at all until further notice due to the Avian Influenza outbreak in the birds that are migrating back here.  This will help us protect our education birds and the other birds that are currently being cared for at our facility.
