Animal rescue center needs help with golf cart

Noah’s Ark Animal Rehab Center and Children’s Care Home, Inc. is seeking a golf cart replacement.

Located on 1,200 acres in Locust Grove, Noah’s Ark cares for over 1,000 animals, both wild and domestic, in a park-like setting.

Up to 30 neglected and abused children are also given shelter and professional care.

Since admission is free, literally hundreds of busloads of school kids visit monthly. Many of the handicapped visitors are ferried around the park on golf carts. Recently one of the two older model carts finally died.

I am seeking a replacement from a local person who no longer uses their golf cart. A tax-deductible donation would apply to the donor. I have been offered upgrading of used carts at cost by a local golf cart business owner.

The Ark also will accept donations toward the purchase of another golf cart. Their website is www.Noahs-ark.org.

For those of you who are not acquainted with Noah’s Ark, it’s worth a visit just to see “Lion, Tiger and Bear,” three very large male predators who have lived together for eight years.
