Share your time as a volunteer. It’s a great way to support animal charities, work with interesting people on both sides of the counter, and apply your retail skills and knowledge of beautiful things where it will be truly appreciated.

The Ark thrives on the goodwill of our volunteers.

We can’t say enough about the generosity and enthusiasm of The Ark volunteers. Some find volunteering a great way to contribute to the animal welfare causes they support. Others find the friendly retail environment a perfect venue to share their appreciation and knowledge of beautiful things. Still others are drawn by the opportunity to meet new friends and interact with The Ark’s interesting local and international clientele.

Whatever motivates your interest to consider a volunteer position at The Ark, we thank you. Volunteering requires a regular weekly commitment of a minimum of 3.5 hours, but it is fun and rewarding. Many of our volunteers have been with us over 10 years. Please call or come into the store to speak to a manager, or email us at, to join our volunteer team.
