What is the Ark?
Counselling and outdoor activity initiatives for young people are many and varied. How often, though, do you find youth programmes using animals as a medium?
At its core, the Nelson ARK is an animal rescue shelter. We bring people, young and old, together as participants or volunteers. Three disparate groups working together to improve quality of life.

An inspirational concept in youth education and animal welfare:
The original concept grew from YAPP, Ontario SPCA’s Youth Animal Pilot Project.
YAPP launched in 1999. It helped young offenders learn kindness and compassion. How? The project matched untrained shelter dogs with young offenders. They trained and cared for the dogs over three months and prepared them for adoption. They learnt the value of responsibility and patience, and earned the trust and friendship of their dog.

The Nelson ARK is the YAPP model with a twist:
We incorporated volunteers into our vision. These volunteers support the young people and dogs-in-training. We also added Healing Species Compassion Education and Violence Intervention into our vision.

The Nelson ARK is a unique concept in community education and welfare in New Zealand.
