Two for Noah's Ark in Locust Grove

We first visited Noah's Ark Animal Rehabilitation Center in Locust Grove last summer. Our original mission was to see Evidence, the injured zebra which had been found on I-75 in Georgia. What we saw was a tremendous love for animals in need.

Evidence has now been at Noah's Ark for just over a year. By all accounts, he's doing wonderfully and really appreciates the shade and his best friend, Grace, a miniature horse.

Two events are in the works over the next couple of days in at Noah's Ark. First, Ann McLaughlin is expected to complete her 300 mile mission for the center. McLaughlin has spent the last 11 days walking from Mooresville to Locust Grove in an effort to try to raise awareness and donations to help the animals.

The other main event will take place on Saturday, May 2, as the new tortoise habitat is unveiled.

The recent downturn in the economy has taken its toll on donations. Noah's Ark has over 1000 mouths to feed on any given day, and is supported solely on donations.

Noah's Ark is open Tuesday thru Saturday, Noon to 3 pm, weather permitting.
