We have a huge problem with pet overpopulation here in Hillsborough County, including Tampa and the surrounding areas. Unwanted pets are unfortunately destroyed literally every day because there aren’t enough community members willing to adopt them (to understand more, please visit Pet Resource Center’s reports page).
But YOU can help:

About Us

We are a foster-based, all-volunteer nonprofit 501(c)3 rescue that takes in, fosters and finds forever homes for medium and large dogs as well as cats. We work primarily (but not exclusively) with hunting dogs such as Pointers and bully breeds such as Staffordshire Terriers.

Our Mission

Animal Rescue Krewe (ARK) of Tampa’s mission is to protect and care for companion animals, as well as reduce overpopulation and cruelty through fundraising, rescue, and education.

“There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river.  We need to go upstream and find out why they’re falling in.”
