As much as I hate to do this we are going to close at this time we will relocate we're trying very hard to find a place and there's just nothing available but we're being evicted and we don't have much time so if anybody knows of a small farm it just has to have a barn and fenced a little to rent I would appreciate it if you would let me know and anywhere will be okay I wanted to stay in ellijay but it's looking more like that's not going to be possible I wanted to stay open as long as we could because I hate for visitors to come and not get to visit with the animals but I can't do everything and I have to find a place to move and take care of the animals so I appreciate it if everybody will be considerate at this time and understand that this is not my will but it is something that has to be done I don't like to mention this but not being open if anyone wants to help us with the animals and to relocate we would appreciate it we only have cash app and venmo at this time or checks and they could be sent to 27 eagle mountain drive ellijay Georgia 30540 and please consider donating some time to help us find a place to go you can call me at 706-972-7250 and thank you so much for caring for the animals

Build an ark animal rescue will be closed Sunday and Monday to search for land to move to sanctuary if anyone knows of a barn or a empty chicken house please let me know my number is 706-972 7250 we really need to find a place to move as soon as possible thank you so much for your help and God bless you mightily

03/09/2022

I wanted to update everyone on what's going on we are still looking for a place to move it is a tough time to try to find somewhere and everything is so expensive we've had not many visitors because of the winter and because of the people that are talking against us right now if anyone knows of a place in ellijay dawsonville Jasper Blue ridge that is for rent that has maybe 10 acres and a barn I sure would appreciate you letting me know you can call me at 706-972-7250 our address at this time is 27 eagle mountain drive we invite you to come and visit and see the animals as long as we're here and then wherever we move to we appreciate everything everyone is done for the animals during these years I know that God has a plan for us and these confusing times will be over we were very surprised and grateful for a large contribution to Uncle B's feed store it was such a blessing there are so many good people in this world it's just that the ones that seem to come against you are few but they yell the loudest I know in my heart things will be better soon thank you everyone again

02/14/2022

Okay I'm going to try one more post we've had a lot of good response on the other two posts but then we have people that don't know what they're talking about and they're just spreading rumors on this post please only put if you know of somewhere that there is a small farm we could rent we have been evicted and we must move quickly for any information you need on why what's going on please call me don't go on Facebook these people that are running me down or only hurting the animals that they profess to care about you know it's always the same ones that are so hateful and they don't think about what they're doing most of these have never been here I doubt any of them that are putting anything negative have been here but please only respond to this post if you know of somewhere we can move the animals my number is 706-972-7250 you may call me anytime if you have any questions about why we were evicted and what's going on at build an ark you are welcome to visit the animals so you can give a opinion that is true thank you so much just remember only if you have a small farm or Barn or even an old chicken house that is sturdy hopefully in ellijay are close surrounding area thank you so very much for caring for the animals

02/12/2022

On my first post I think I went too much in detail if anybody wants detail please call me at 706-972-7250 or just come and see the animals at this time the best thing to do is to call because I am out looking at property to try to move to we have been evicted and we are looking for a place to move the animals we need a small farm if anyone knows of one for rent I think the first post got out of hand and everyone made it about me and how much they care about me but it's about the animals right now I must get them to a safe place please help me look hopefully in ellijay or a surrounding area I still want to work with these nursing homes and the special needs and normally I wouldn't put anything about funding but at this time it is imperative that we do this the moving alone is going to be expensive and caring for the animals during this time right now we only have cash app and venmo if anyone would like to help most of you have been so supportive and I really appreciate it more than you'll ever know it's very encouraging during this time to know that people care and I know many of you love these animals and I am so thankful for you and my life with the animals God bless each and everyone of you
And please come and visit the animals

02/10/2022

In between rescuing horses and other animals, we spend time educating young people by letting them get up close and touch the animal kingdom.
We brought a pig, goats, bunnies, ducks, a chicken and two turtles to Wesleyan Prep School. We had a very interested audience, many questions were asked and many of these children touched and even held the animals. All the animals were from Build An Ark Rescue. #WeAreRescue #savethehorsesorg

This sweet baby will steal your heart 💜 and needs a special home!
“Forrest” needs a quiet home with no kids or dogs. She is very shy but when you hold her, she will snuggle up. (She also has a sister, “Strudel” with the same personality)
They are 4-5 months old, fully vaccinated, dewormed, and spayed.

Had to take this little guy😺to a Veterinary Ophthalmologist 👁 in Chattanooga last week. The “third eyelid” on his left eye had fused halfway up, partially blocking his vision. Health-wise he didn’t have to have the procedure done but we felt it would give him a better quality of life. He will always have a leaky eye but now he has better vision 👀

HI...I have 4 hens that have been great but I need to retire them. Could you take them or know anyone that could? Thanks and Happy Holidays!!
It was great to see you again today. I am so glad my family had the chance to experience Build An Ark!
This was from a bit ago but wanted to share. Hoping to come by again soon!
⭐️⭐️⭐️LOST DOG ⭐️⭐️⭐️ LOST DOG ELLIJAY, GA!!!!! PLEASE HELP BRING HIM HOME. HIS OWNER IS CURRENTLY DEPLOYED!! His name is ABE, and is very sweet. He ran away from home on 10/19/2021 on HWY 5 South. He is an intact male and has on a collar with owners information on it. ANY and ALL help is greatly appreciated. Please contact: Kamber- 678-814-6570. Ashton- 770-862-6673 Tiffani- 706-970-9410
This is a really nice place, but they desperately need help to clean it up. There was ALOT of junk laying around that looked it it had been there along time. The barn was beautiful, but didn't seem to be in use, except I saw more junk in the windows. The animals seem to be cared for, and it was a neat experience to be able to feed them. However, the website says "Learn about each animal, its upkeep, and the unique stories that bring each one to the Ark." There was no information about the animals at all. Perhaps if I has asked, but there were only two people there at the time to care for them. The staff was courteous and considerate. This could be a very nice place to visit if only it was cleaned up. If I didn't live 11 hours away, it would be cool to volunteer.

The animals at Build an Ark Animal Rescue were amazing today. I felt so much love. The animals have an abundance of food. But I would suggest more grooming for the horses, donkeys, alpaca, and ram. Plus organizing the barnyard. I also suggest more people need to volunteer to help out the nice lady who dedicates many hours each day to these wonderful animals. Thank you. 🥰😘
The gas issue is definitely impacting our ability to do transports. We so appreciate our volunteers that are able to assist during this time! Thank you to volunteer Jamie Wireman for meeting a volunteer from Build an Ark Animal Rescue to pick up this injured Red-tailed hawk. Jamie took the hawk to the Chattahoochee Nature Center Wildlife Rehabilitation this morning.
I met a woman yesterday that I have admired for a long time. I loved meeting you and thank you so much for sharing your heart with me and that cute little piglet. I wish I could take you all home with me, but I could see immediately after finally meeting you face to face, all of these kiddos are in the best place they could possibly be. Thank you so much for all the love you give and for giving them all of your heart. You are an amazing human. We need so many more of you!! Thank you for all you do.
Thank You for all you do.......Had a great time watching our grandsons learn about the animals and the importance of caring for and loving animals of all kinds.
