Noah's Ark Animal Welfare Association is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization with our mission to enhance the care and living conditions of domestic animals within the city of Trinidad and Las Animas county, with emphasis on population control, disease prevention, adoption programs, support of shelters, and the education of the community on animal care issues. We have received grants in the past for spay/neutering dogs and cats to reduce the number of homeless pet animals, and will continue to pursue available funds. All charitable donations to us are tax deductible and will be acknowledged for your tax purposes.

ADOPT-A-PET Approved Shelter ASPCA PetSmart Rescue Waggin'
WANTED: A FEW GOOD BOARD MEMBERS!


Noah's Ark board and officers have been successfully operating the shelter since 2001. It is an active working board making events happen in the Trinidad area. Past events have included the Trinidaddio Blues Fest, newsletter "Noah's Bark", Paws in the Park, garage sales, Peacock Ball, Yellow Doggies donation containers, New Shelter Advisory Board, Feral Cat Program, and animal care education for elementary school students.

Noah's Ark Animal Welfare Association is currently seeking individuals to join our Board of Directors (non-paid position). The board meets on a monthly basis and oversees fundraisers, special events and programs. Expect to spend approximately 3-5 hours per month dedicated to the board. Interested individuals should 1) have a strong passion for animals and their welfare, 2) have the ability to commit to the board and time requirements, 3) be a team player and contribute to discussions, and 4) have a positive outlook and be a forward thinker. The rewards of being a part of the board are endless: you have the ability to make an immediate impact on the program and life of animals, you get first hand experience dealing with non-profit work, and it's a great resume builder and "feel good" experience. If you are interested in joining, please send a letter of interest to P.O. Box 478, Trinidad, CO 81082. Please spread the word!
