Animal Ark, a Wildlife Sanctuary that began in 1980, is home to animals like fox, wolves, coyote, cheetah, Bobcats, Black bear, and many others. Explorers will find different animals from the wildlife with their history as to how they were found and their age. Zulu, for example, is a cheetah guests can see at Animal Ark with scientific name Acinonyx Jubatus.

Old reptiles can also be found at the wildlife center like Peabody, a desert tortoise with birth date approximately in 1956. A number of Canids can be seen in Animal Ark like Lisa, a Red Fox with birth date on spring of 2006. She's accompanied by Effie, an Arctic Fox, with birth date on spring of 2001. Another Red Fox is also at the center named Jonathan with birth date on the 8th of April 2000.

Animal Ark offers two programs open to potential members. Membership program allows members to support the center both financially and physically. Both Standard and Platinum membership types allow members to have these privileges. Fees vary according to age. For example, in Platinum, the membership fee for adults is at $125 while individual seniors are at $75. Memberships last for a year which starts and ends every February.

Animal Ark also has the "Share the Care" Animal Adoption program that allows interested guests and members to adopt an animal. The wildlife sanctuary has a lineup of animals that cannot survive without extra care and are open for adoption. They're called the 'disadvantaged' which means they cannot live in the sanctuary independently. However, unlike basic adoption, the animals don't necessarily have to live in the participating member's residence but would rather be fed and given veterinary care. Animal enrichment programs are available for resident animals who are adopted. The cost is at $100 for interested participants.
