About The A.R.K. Humane Society
The A.R.K. (Animal Recycling Kennel) is a not-for-profit, “No-Kill” animal shelter that provides temporary shelter and loving care for homeless dogs and cats while working to find them forever homes. Every year, the A.R.K. finds loving forever homes for over 400 cats and dogs, most of whom come to them after their time has run out at other animal control facilities. The organization also educates the public on vital animal welfare issues such as the importance of spaying/neutering their pets. The A.R.K. relies almost entirely on volunteers to care for over 150 rescue animals daily. Founded in 1988 by Director Sherri Coghill, the shelter has been at their current location at 477 State Route 26 just south of Lacon, Illinois, since 2001.
