Noah's Ark Animal Welfare Association
Ledgewood, NJ 07852
Noah's Ark was founded in 1966 as a small rescue group. A handful of dedicated, compassionate individuals met the challenge to alleviate the pain and suffering and give a second chance to countless homeless animals often the victims of indifference and a result of pet overpopulation.
It was the dream of Mildred Wien, founder of Noah's Ark to open a shelter where these poor, forgotten waifs could find safety and care until a new home could be found for them. Members fostered the rescued animals in their homes and in the basement of a Boonton thrift shop, Noah's Nook and Cranny, which was also headquarters for the growing association. News spread of their work and their numbers grew. For over ten years they tenaciously worked toward their dream while continuing their mission. Fundraisers of all sorts were launched including elegant garden parties and house tours, lawn sales, mass appeals in newspapers, and networking with community resources and leaders.
Spaying and neutering of pets was aggressively promoted. Noah's Ark was a pioneer in this critical animal welfare area, establishing a spay/neuter financial assistance program early on. In 1971, the Pet Adoption Promise commenced asking adopters to sign an agreement to spay/neuter their pet, give proper vet care and provide a happy, healthy environment.
