What is NARPS?
Noah’s Ark Rescue Project and Sanctuary (or NARPS for short) was founded in September 2015 by Candace Scheirer. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue and welfare organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming animals in need, whether from shelters, auctions or owner surrenders.
Where are you located? Do you have a physical location?
Our rescue is currently working as a foster-based program which we hope will steadily grow. For the time being, we are limited in the amount of rescues we can take in due to this fact. The sanctuary part of NARPS is only for our farm animals as our sanctuary is at our Founder's personal residence. We don't allow visitors.
What types of animals do you rescue?
While dogs and cats are our most common rescues, we do quite a bit of work with horses, pigs, goats and other farm animals too...and of course all of the other domesticated animals as well! NARPS also has a soft spot for senior pets and special needs pets. NARPS also works with owners in need of assistance with vet care, or other pet related expenses to help keep animals in their homes and barns, and out of shelters and auctions. NARPS is best known for going above and beyond for the animals in our care. We pour our hearts, souls, and wallets into our animals. We rely strongly on the support from our community to help us take on the hardest cases.
What are you future plans?
We may be a small organization, but we sure do have some big plans! We have ambitions to eventually have our own facility to house our rescues while they’re looking for their forever homes and to rehabilitate those who need it. Another goal is to address vital contributing factors which lead to the overpopulation of domesticated pets. Over breeding and over population directly affect the number of animals who find themselves in shelters or strays and in need of rescuing by shelters and rescues like NARPS. NARPS plans on developing community outreach programs to help with many animal welfare issues and to help educate the public. Some of these programs which we hope to implement are low cost spay/neuter and vaccine clinics (possibly even mobile clinics), and educational seminars with interesting and knowledgeable guest speakers!
We are not a breed specific rescue, nor are we species specific.
At NARPS our motto is...Big and Small, Hooves and Paws, We Rescue Them ALL!
