Our Story

Noah’s Ark was founded in 1995 by Raymund Wee in Singapore.  In 2000, the sanctuary, including all its inhabitants, moved to a 10-acre site in Johor, Malaysia.  This free roaming and NO KILL SANCTUARY is now home to 700 dogs, 300 cats, 10 horses, 3 primates, a wild boar and many other rescued animals.

Notice of changes in the Singapore Operations

Noah’s Ark Natural Animal Shelter (NANAS) and Noah’s Ark CARES (NA CARES) are no longer affiliated to each other. 

The two entities separated in July 2016 when NA CARES was granted charity status.  Funds raised by NA CARES in Singapore could no longer be used to fund sanctuary operations in Malaysia. 

A new entity, Noah’s Ark Natural Animal Shelter was formed on 27 July 2016 in Singapore to replace NA CARES to continue its mission to help animals in Singapore and Malaysia.
